Getting Around in Aruba

Aruba has a good network of roads allowing access to most places of interest. If you want to explore Aruba in air-conditioned comfort you can do a lot of sightseeing by following the main paved roads, with many types of cars to choose from for this purpose. Several Aruba Car Rental companies are present at the airport where you pick up or drop off your vehicle or you can request pick-up at your hotel.

Explore Aruba: 4x4, Motorcycles & Scooters

For the more adventurous, it's a good idea to rent a four wheel drive vehicle since to reach certain sightseeing excursions one must tackle what are often rugged roads not suitable for a regular car. Many 4-wheel drive cars often lack a roof, so plenty of sunblock is called for! Aruba also offers several ATV and UTV rental options, but always make sure to stick to designated paths and be respectful of Aruba's natural surroundings.

Taxis, Public Transportation & Airport Transportation

Taxis in Aruba are also widely available, they do not have meters, and have fixed rates set by government regulations. There is also an affordable and reliable daily bus service between several main districts and the hotel areas. The main bus station is located in downtown Oranjestad. Transportation between your hotel and the airport can be accomplished by charter motor coach from companies such as De Palm Tours and E.L. Tours
