I wanted to see this place because 13 years ago my husband had a very serious sun burn and all healed without traces by the product produced by this factory. Since then I have no doubt about its efficiency and wanted to see how the products are produced, some of its history and finally buy them to use during our... More

Stopped here for a small tour of the facility. The tour leader took us without waiting for more people and walked us through the process of draining, skinning, and using the meat of the aloe. Being from Texas, we have aloe growing in or yard and its very interesting to know how to use aloe besides on injuries. There is... More

The museum tour is short and sweet and offers insight into Aruban agricultural history. There is a store attached to the museum with lots of ale body products for visitors to purchase.

We visited the Aruba Aloe site and had a wonderful and informative tour. This is a free tour too. At the end of the tour, you can see all the products and purchase a few. Directions to the place were a little difficult to follow in Fodder's Aruba book. Just ask someone and they can direct you from Palm or... More

My wife and I stopped by early on a Saturday afternoon. We mused around the small aloe museum inside the building and waited for an English tour. Our tour guide was fun and energetic. He showed us all about the aloe vera plant and how to cut it open and extract the gel. You could tell he really loves his... More

We were very impressed with this (free) visit to the Aruba Aloe Museum and factory. Our guide was knowledgeable; he (and all islanders, really) speaks 4 languages! We saw the aloe farm and got demonstrations on how to access the magic gel in the leaves. Inside, we were taken on a tour of the pristine aloe factory, where actual workers,... More

This tour is free and the main guide, Giovanni, Loves the product and getting to do these tours. Don't expect much from the factory presentation. You go upstairs to look below at the production area....many times it isn't in process, but it is really cool to watch when it is! Bus loads full of tourists stop here, so if they... More

First, I have to say that the young man who gave us the factory tour was filled with exuberant love for his job and he made us all feel special. The tour itself is a bit underwhelming though. Lots of cool gifts in the gift shop but they were a bit pricey in my opinion, but we still walked away... More

This 30-minute visit should be one of the first activities done in Aruba so you can buy the amazing skin-saving aloe products. Sunscreen, after sun lotion and aloe balm really helps a tourist survive Aruba's intense sun! And this is not the slimy green gel that many people call aloe... this is the real thing and it works great. You... More
