The beaches in Aruba are too beautiful to pass up on your travel. I felt Aruba lacked in individual culture, but it was still warm and nice to see. The landscape is very arid, so do not expect the typical, lush tropical landscape of other islands. The grass has to have sprinklers there, if that helps explain it. It is very hot and humid there, as well. The beaches work wonderfully to cool you off, since the water is always very fresh. The food is delicious every where you go and reasonbly priced. There are many tours offered, and the snorkeling is great. Aruba is great for a relaxing getaway. Wear sunblock! I wore SPF 80 and still burned!

Oranjestad, Aruba
L.G. Smith Blvd
Downtown Shopping
Shopped on 5 August 2013. The downtown shopping area is full of colorful buildings, all types of eating places, the cruise ship port, flea market areas, Renaissance Mall, and the marina. Do your shopping when in Aruba and pay attention to details. Palm Beach has a mall also and shopping as well as downtown. Compare prices all over. This has become my favorite place to travel to. Like the two big signs that say "I Love Aruba" is so true. The people are friendly and happy. They love their tourist and do their best to keep you happy. If you can't be happy and at peace here, then you might want to check your personality. Since we rent a car when we come to Aruba, the tourist side is not the same as the majority of the island living. Most are just making it. But when driving through those other areas (only speaking from daytime experience) I never felt unsafe. I have been to the desert with the military and always stay on alert to many things, but never had ever felt unsafe. Just be careful because the drinking age is 18 and that is how young adults tend to get in trouble. You also have people from all different countries on this little island. Any where during travel always travel in groups and never leave a friend any where. But overall you will Love this little island.

Aruba is a fantastic island to visit.The people are very friendly and really make visitors welcome.Everyone of the islanders are happy & smiling and this is why Aruba is known as "The Smiling Island".The island is very clean and fabulous for sightseeing.I found nothing to dislike about Aruba.There is very little, if any crime, as everyone has a job and therefore an income.This was explained to me by a tour driver native to the island.There is no dole.If you don't have a job the government will give you a job.If you have nowhere to live the government will rent you a home.You pay the rent for 25 years and then you own the property.A brilliant system and it works.I have visited the island twice on cruise ships and it is the friendliest and safest place i have ever visited.Thoroughly recommended.

Aruba has great beaches, the people are friendly and there are lots of places to shop for jewelry. i did an island tour to the lighthouse, and a great little church with seats out side to accommodate more people, i also learn about the kind of material they use in the cheaper homes. if you want water sports it a plenty.and the other travelers in the group said it is great, i just wanted to know about the people so i took a land tour and learned a lot.
