Jimmy was our tour guide for landsailing, and man, it was GREAT! Smart, nice, friendly, and kind when teaching! HIGHLY recommend. I'm not a beach person, so this was a great adventure for my birthday! :)

The driver and the guide were so friendly and helpful! We had a bit of extra time so they took us by the lighthouse for some photos. Learning how to blo-cart was a blast and we were there for a good long time. I really can't say enough good things about this trip! Book it if you're looking for excitement and a different experience!!

I went for the third time now kitesurfing and I got each time very good service. I had a very competent and helpful trainer each time.

My 11yo son wanted to go back because he liked AAV so much the first time. Great staff, excellent instructors (thanks Tanguy and Adam ;-) and perfect equipment. He made major improvements and is able to kite on his own after a few lessons. Now I want to take lessons myself! We'll be back, for sure!

Aruba Active Vacations is top notch when it comes to windsurfing. We stayed in Aruba for one week, planned for one windsurfing session, and ended up going there three times because it was so much fun. We also dragged another family to go with us and they loved it too. The lessons are instructive. Instructors are patient, they observe each student and help each one out according to their needs. They point out key points there are important to each person progressing in whatever they're practicing, which I thought was really thoughtful. Hats off to Carmen, she was especially awesome. On our last day, we had to go back for more windsurfing. Of course, we forgot the time and kept going for a while. The staff didn't bother to wave us back or tell us time was up. They simply allowed us to enjoy the last bits of Aruban fun. Some folks from our party are not athletic at all, and everyone had a great time and learned a lot. Two thumbs up.
