Plan your itinerary and explore the island

When planning a shorter vacation, it’s a great idea to reserve one or two days for discovering all there is to see and do on the island, to make the most out of your time! Book any tours and activities prior to your vacation to better stay within your budget. This gives you less of a chance to blindly exceed your budget, while in the moment. Don’t forget to keep a few days open in your itinerary for relaxing on the beach, simply going with the flow and for making some last-minute adventurous decisions. After all, this is a vacation, it’s meant to be both fun and relaxing!

Get a taste of island dining

When it comes to dining in Aruba, many restaurants are currently offering great specials, practicing strict hygiene and safety protocols, and are extremely eager to have you dine with them! If you aren’t feeling too comfortable with the idea of dining out, choose from one of the many outdoor restaurants on the island or decide to order take-out or delivery. If your accommodation includes a kitchen, head to your nearest grocery store, such as Ling & Sons, and make a delicious island-inspired dinner from “home”!
