Driving Around The Christmas Lights in Aruba

Every year around December, the entire island of Aruba gets lit for Christmas… call it Lit-mas season if you will. This year is no exception and as usual the traffic roundabouts are the highlight of the decorations across the island. We now have even more roundabouts to decorate and more to come in the future!

Aruba residents are decking the halls or in this case, their houses, with Christmas lights and bringing holiday cheer for everyone to enjoy while on the road. And, we love to see it! Some are lighting up the neighborhood so bright they might just be seen above all the way from space. Okay, maybe that’s a bit far fetched but you get the gist. Perhaps seeing them from a high point in the island, such as, Alto Vista or Hooiberg is more likely!


We decided to put on our Santa hats and hit the road to capture this festive piece of holiday tradition in Aruba, and share it with our wonderful visitors. ’Tis the season to spread some holly jolly spirit, isn’t it? Check out this interactive map we put together for you, featuring the top places to see Christmas lights on our one happy island of Aruba.
