This park was a bit small than I expected. It has a nice statue of Queen Wilhelmina. The locals have their homemade wares under tents but do not try to pressure into buying.

The statue at this park was next door to my hotel, and to the beaches. Worth making the visit to have a glance at the statue of the island's Queen and take a picture.

This is the second time this year we have visited this park just to see the iguanas. There are quite a few iguanas in the park and they are not phased about people taking their photos. The park is also kept in a clean condition.

There is a statue of Queen Wilhelmina here. She was Queen of the Netherlands from 1890 to 1948. The people of Aruba respected her according to the inscription on the statue base.

We were visiting in November and we were able to witness the Inauguration of the new Prime Minister and the parliament. While this might not impress some it is always very neat to see something new especially when its a different country.

Forget the excursions. Rent a car and do all that you listed and more. Truly enjoy the island. It will also probably save you money.

Many restaurants close for the a few weeks to a month. Typically the wind shuts down and it can be hot. Bike Week is first week in Sept. Hundreds of bikers from the ABC islands and...More
