  • It is a festival that takes place every Tuesday from 6 pm in the historical Museum, and by usd 5 to access to the Museum and the Festival. It is a festival armed and made to teach tourists about the music, poetry, dances and food in Aruba, is not something for locals. The museum itself is nothing extraordinary. What if the food was extraordinary: at a great price you can eat dishes typical delicious! We ate the dish of Christmas (just by the time that went) but not let's try them pastechis!

  • Probably born to poorly informed tourists, maybe dock with cruise ships and have little time to devote to the island. Apart from the music, which is always pleasant cultural expression throughout the world, we found it cold and boring. An announcer told the story of the island and gave news of an embarrassing obviousness (for those starting with a minimum of "preparation" with respect to the goal). No practical use, no emotional involvement.
