But overwhelmed when the cruise ships release the hoards of people. No charge and the downtown is small so it’s an easy ride. Do it after or before the cruise ship arrives.

This kind of tram si really nice.Downtown of Oranjestad is not that big and you will have a pleasant ride to see main spots. It is free of charge and it runs from port. It could be really busy during cruising stops but really nice.

Slow but you can jump off anywhere. See all of downtown and decide your real destination before you wear yourself in the heat.

The trolley on Aruba is the best way to tour downtown.. the ride is free and takes about 30 minutes..you can get off and get on and save your tired feet.

There not to many free things out there anymore, but this is. Located right at the cruise port is one of the stops. This where you can get on one of the two beautifully maintained and clean streetcars. The route is not long, but it...More

No, it's free public transportation that makes a loop from the cruise terminal to downtown area. They run every 25 minutes.

Go across the street of Divi Village main entrance to take the bus to Oranjestad downtown. It is about 10 to 15 minutes ride. Get off the bus at the final stop. You will see the Streetcar there.
