The Ultimate Aruba Travel Guide

We have been home from Aruba for about a month now, and we are all still dreaming of sandy beaches, warm sun, and of course our tan skin that has faded away! We had an absolute blast in Aruba all thanks to Aruba Tourism, and to every single person who has asked and will still ask, yes it was AMAZING, and yes I would go back again!

We had the opportunity to stay at the beautiful Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort and Casino, where we enjoyed luxury amenities such as, beach front property, gorgeous pools, and of course the best service you could ask for. We were greeted with a cold beverage and towel upon arrival, and trust me you want it, because it is warm! Just the way I like it! The rooms were beautiful, with ocean views, and one up my favorite parts of the hotel was the cute little lounge on our bedroom floor that provided complimentary breakfast daily, and snack and drinks through out the day! I mean come on who doesn’t love free food and drinks?


While in Aruba we got to go on two different excursions which I would totally recommend! The first one we went on was a ATV ride where we got to go to three different stops. The first stop being my absolute favorite was called the “Natural Pools” it is on the beach and it is made of rocks, and we got to get in the water and swim in these natural pools! It was a such neat experience, and may I also say I have never seen such blue water! Our second tour was on a catamaran boat that took us out to two different snorkeling spots that were absolutely breath taking! I was so impressed with myself I actually got in the water and full blow snorkeled which is a very big deal, trust me!


We ate at some amazing restaurants, though the “Bugaloe Beach Bar & Grill“ in front of our hotel on the pier became one of our favorites, the views were absolutely amazing and the ceviche was ALL TIME…the quesadilla was excellent as well! They have live entertainment going on all the time. One night we were feeling pizza so we headed to Amore Mio. The food was delicious…get the Caprese salad! We stumbled across Driftwood one night and it may have been our favorite from the trip…we had the salmon… by far the best fish on the trip! We also tried Passions on the Beach because it was so highly recommended…have to be honest…it was the most expensive and our least favorite!

We had such a wonderful trip from start to finish, we have even said multiple times how wonderful even our flights were with JetBlue, we still aren’t sure if it is because of the extra room they have in all their rows and their touchscreen tv’s with direct tv in all there seats, or simply because we didn’t have our children screaming their heads off next to us asking us every five seconds if we are there yet!

If you are looking for a sunny, warm, trip, where you can literally leave all your worries behind, and have some amazing adventures along the way, then definitely check out Aruba Tourism for all trip planning details! You will not be disappointed!
