Oranjestad

— 2 nights
When vacationing on Aruba, don't miss taking a tour of Oranjestad, the capital of the small Caribbean island.
When in Oranjestad, make a side trip to see Baby Beach in San Nicolas, approximately San Nicolas away. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Eagle Beach, enjoy the sea views from California Lighthouse, contemplate the long history of Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins, and head off the coast to De Palm Island.

To see other places to visit, ratings, maps, and tourist information, go to the Oranjestad day trip planner.

In October, daily temperatures in Oranjestad can reach 38°C, while at night they dip to 32°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.

Happy Island
A Dutch outpost in the Caribbean, sun-drenched Aruba provides a mix of modern seaside resorts and quiet coastal areas ideal for those wishing to escape the crowds. Vacations in Aruba, known affectionately as the "Happy Island," generally combine water-based activities with tours of the untamed backcountry, where you can discover unusual rock formations, historic churches, ostrich farms, and animal sanctuaries. Island capital Oranjestad offers some of the finest shopping and cultural sightseeing in Aruba, with an eco-friendly electric streetcar providing quick access to all of the city's major attractions, including numerous shops, restaurants, and hotels.
