If you have the time, stop by and take a tour of this aloe factory. It is very interesting to see how the aloe is extracted from the plant and processed into very useful products for the skin. The aloe plant grows on the island and, in fact, the field of aloe is right there by the building. We had... More

Thought it would be a good idea for four kids to get a little bit of insight and education on the aloe plant and manufacturing process while on vacation. Made a special trip via taxi. What a waste....factory tour was lame. Five workers on Caribbean break time....sitting around until they saw visitors and started to "work". Tour took less than... More

Visited the Aruba Aloe factory on a shore excursion. Its a short guided tour whereby you will see the operations of how the aloe is processed and made into various products. The guide, who works there, was quad lingual, as most Arubans are, so languages aren't a problem if you cannot speak Dutch. There is a small store there that... More

I bought Aruba Aloe products at Ling & Son's & the store at the Renaissance Mall. The Desert Bloom lotion makes my skin sooooo soft and it has healed mosquito bites (from Texas, not Aruba). Great products.

I took a tour of the Aruba Aloe Factory. It was very interesting to learn the history of aloe and how the different products are made. The tour was FREE but you could make a donation if you wanted. I chose to make my donation at the store. The products in the factory store come with a coupon so that... More

Our tour guide was very informative. My friend and I were lucky enough to have a private tour and he was able to answer all our questions without rushing us through the tour. We learned many uses of aloe that we had not known before. While on the island many products were purchased - happy with all, the after sun... More

For those who like factory tours, it was fun to see how they harvest aloe and produce their products. Prices are kind of high, but I'm not a woman so....

This was a unique experience to do in Aruba. It was a very cool tour of the aloe factory, with shopping in the store afterwards. Nice place to visit.
