The Best Things to do with Your Dad in Aruba on Father’s Day

I don’t know about you, but I honestly mean when I say, “if my dad can’t do it no one can!” I may not be a little girl anymore, but that doesn’t change the fact that my dad is my superhero.

He may not exactly be a Thor or Wolverine type… but he is a superhero nonetheless!

Dads tend to fix anything, anywhere… at any given time. They have all the right answers and always have your best interest at heart. So, to sum it up, they can pretty much do anything and are always there to save the day.

Want to give your superhero what he deserves this Father’s Day?

Sometimes it can be difficult to determine what makes dad happiest, as he is not always an open book. Deciding how to adequately honor the special dad in your life on this day is not exactly the easiest.

If you are lucky enough to be in Aruba for Father’s Day, whether you are his son, daughter, wife, or partner… make the most out of your day together!

Take a look at some of the best things to do in Aruba to make dad happy!

Is he into adrenaline pumping island excursions? Or is he more of a bookworm kind-of-guy, relaxing under a palapa on the beach? Or perhaps his favorite hobby is food? No worries, we’ve got something for every dad out there!

Cigar tasting

Is dad a cigar lover? As any cigar aficionado will tell you, cigars are a hobby, not a habit. If your dad fancies cigars be sure to check out the following places in Aruba to find and experience quality, premium cigars! Oh, and excellent rum too!

Want to switch things up? Order to go and have a picnic on the beach!

Beer tasting

Your dad is going to need something refreshing to wash down all that food, am I right?

Rather than just hitting up a typical watering hole and taking a seat at the bar… switch things up! Try Aruba’s very own locally brewed beer at Fireson Brewing Company!

To say every dad loves beer would be quite stereotypical. Perhaps your dad is more of a wine lover instead? Well, Kukoo Kukuku has something for him too! How does a Wine on Down the Road Tour sound? If you answered magical, yes you are right. It is very magical. Check out our very own Wine on Down the Road experience here.

Let your dad be the star of the show

Some dads just want to have fun. You know, like sing his heart out on the microphone or cut a rug on the dance floor… does that sound like your dad?

Dad’s gone fishin’

Just a man, the sea and his fishing rod. Sometimes the simplest things in life can bring the greatest joy. If he’s up for some company, book a fishing charter for two for the day. Nothing beats some quality time out on the water, especially if that water is the mesmerizing Caribbean Sea! Don’t forget to pack a cooler filled with snacks and cold ones for the day.

If you end up catching a big one… bring it to Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar & Restaurant downtown by the marina and they will prepare it exactly to your liking!  Now that is a true sea-to-table dinner… yum!

Check out Aruba’s fishing charters.

Dads needs pampering too

Give dad the rest, relaxation and pampering he deserves and probably oh-so-desperately needs!

If you find none of these ideas speak to you or that special dad in your life… then grab your towel, pack a cooler and head to the beach! There is nothing better than a day at the beach!

Whatever you decide to do, remember to enjoy each other’s company and relax! After all, you are in warm, sunny and happy Aruba!
