Oranjestad

— 4 nights
When vacationing on Aruba, don't miss taking a tour of Oranjestad, the capital of the small Caribbean island.
Change things up with these side-trips from Oranjestad: San Nicolas (Baby Beach & Museum of Industry). There's lots more to do: stroll through Eagle Beach, step off the mainland to explore De Palm Island, kick back and relax at Arashi Beach, and take in the dramatic natural features at Ayo and Casibari Rock Formations.

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major aiport is Queen Beatrix International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 39°C, and evening lows to 32°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.

Happy Island
A Dutch outpost in the Caribbean, sun-drenched Aruba provides a mix of modern seaside resorts and quiet coastal areas ideal for those wishing to escape the crowds. Vacations in Aruba, known affectionately as the "Happy Island," generally combine water-based activities with tours of the untamed backcountry, where you can discover unusual rock formations, historic churches, ostrich farms, and animal sanctuaries. Island capital Oranjestad offers some of the finest shopping and cultural sightseeing in Aruba, with an eco-friendly electric streetcar providing quick access to all of the city's major attractions, including numerous shops, restaurants, and hotels.
