When vacationing on Aruba, don't miss taking a tour of Oranjestad, the capital of the small Caribbean island. The palm tree-fringed city streets are lined with Dutch-style buildings and sprinkled with an array of shops offering crafts, souvenirs, and great deals on jewelry. A carefree vibe permeates the charming town that can be explored on foot or on the free eco-trolley. Besides shopping and sightseeing, your Oranjestad itinerary can include a variety of water sports, visits to lively bars and restaurants, and a tour of the historic Fort Zoutman.
