The Top 5 Things to Do in Aruba
Just 15 miles off the coast of Venezuela, Aruba is a Dutch island paradise - one filled with cacti, wild donkeys, and winds that make water sports like kitesurfing and Hobie cat sailing a dream.
While you will find plenty of places to sip cocktails and relax by the sea, you will also be presented with a world of adventurous outdoor activities and boutique offerings off the beaten track.

Get ready to explore And Enjoy The Best Things to Do in Aruba!
1. Go hiking in Arikok National Park
The rugged Arikok National Park, which covers 20% of the island, offers a crash course on Aruba's flora and fauna.
Here you will find native Watapana trees that always grow to the southwest, wild fast-growing aloe vera, and mesquite plants.
The park is also home to the deadly Manchineel, an innocent-looking tree with bright green leaves and fragrant apple-like fruits, but one that you should avoid at all costs. Lizards take up residence along the paths of Arikok and you will often see goats crawling up its many slopes.
There are even invasive pythons hiding near the bases of trees and in rocky outcrops. Climb to the top of Jamanota Hill, Aruba's highest peak, for a panoramic view of the island.
Later, explore the caves or take a refreshing dip in the natural pool.
2. Boarding a UTV or Jeep Adventure
ABC Tours of Aruba offers two unique ways to see the island: aboard a UTV or in the back of a custom jeep.
The company offers a variety of off-road experiences that will take you to some of the best places on the island: historic gold mines; the Baby Natural Bridge, on the northeast coast of the island; Blackstone Beach; and the remote “conchi”, a natural pool that can only be accessed by 4x4, on foot or on horseback.
ABC lets you go on an adventure on your own or join nine other people to explore the island for half a day. Either way, expect a lot of bumps flying high as you go.
3. Examine the caves of the island
The "A" in the ABC islands of the Caribbean is home to a trio of bat-filled caves that are worth exploring.
Fontein Cave is an easy-to-navigate entity filled with petroglyphs and many stalagmites and stalactites. One of the coolest things about Fontein is its nearby lake, where resident fish are happy to provide "natural" pedicures for free.
There is also Gaudirikiri, a two-chambered cavern that receives some sunlight through its holes in the ceiling.
Huliba Cave (also known as Aruba's "Tunnel of Love") has five entrances, including one shaped like a heart. Rumors abound of buried treasure in this dark and generally low passage.
4. Test your skills in water sports
The island winds here are legendary. In fact, Aruba's mild temperatures, consistent winds, and a mix of calm waters and challenging wave conditions make it a windsurfers paradise.
It is the perfect destination for windsurfers of all levels, and Vela Sports offers lessons for both beginners and seasoned enthusiasts.
If you want to try something new, you can go sailing Hobie cat or sign up for a kitesurfing class (although it is more difficult than windsurfing, you can go much faster).
When you're done, you'll have plenty of time to dive into the island's turquoise waters.
5. Horse riding
There are many ways to experience Aruba's breathtaking beauty on horseback, whether it's traversing the island's vast sand dunes or embarking on a private adventure through the wild desert landscape at sunset.
Some guided tours include a visit to the island's Bushiribana gold mill ruins, while others highlight the scenery of Rancho Daimari, one of Aruba's ancient coconut plantations.
Tours last from one to three hours, and depending on the company you choose, they cater to a variety of skill levels.
Rancho Notorious offers a tour that visits the island's historic Alto Vista Chapel, a bright yellow Catholic church with its own outdoor maze and stunning views of the ocean.
