Oranjestad

— 4 nights
When vacationing on Aruba, don't miss taking a tour of Oranjestad, the capital of the small Caribbean island.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Donkey Sanctuary Aruba and Malmok Beach. Let the collections at National Archaeological Museum Aruba and Cosecha capture your imagination. There's still lots to do: visit a coastal fixture at California Lighthouse, take in the awesome beauty at Hooiberg, enjoy the sand and surf at Arashi Beach, and take in the dramatic natural features at Ayo and Casibari Rock Formations.

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.
