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! All of the bright colorful lights are such a joy to see during the holiday season!


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 you, our wonderful visitors. After all, ’tis the sea-sun 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:

And, if you’re wondering what Bon Pasco means, we invite you to read our blog about holiday Papiamento words , you’ll be hearing these words a lot during Christmas and New Year in Aruba.

Not on the island this holiday season? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! We’re not done spreading the Christmas cheer just yet. We’ve also created videos for you with some teaser Christmas roundabouts as well as other decorations across the island.

Check them out below!

It’s impossible to not be filled with joy whenever you pass a round-a-bout fully decked out, merry and bright, for the holidays, right?


We hope you enjoy driving around the island, and taking in all of the holiday spirit that Aruba has to offer as much as we do. So, what are you waiting for? Grab some snacks and hop on your sleigh and let Rudolph lead the way (or our map)!


Bon Pasco (Merry Christmas) to all of our happy Aruba lovers!
