I am a travel junky, I love to visit exotic locations, enjoy great food, participate in adventures, soak in new cultures, and of course relax during a holiday. My most favorite destination is invariably is a place that offers outdoor activities, good food, and of course shopping. I am not a big shopper but I do love to buy antiques, local artifacts, and other odds and ends as memories of my visit.
Ever since I heard about the offerings that Aruba travel has I have been sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to get there and enjoy the new destination. First off let me tell you about the amazing shopping options that this exotic island offers. Prices are 10-35 percent lower than in continental America. There are upscale malls selling international brands, jewelry stores, and of course the downtown shopping experience that only Aruba can offer.
You can buy anything at Aruba from gold and silver jewelry to watches, to cosmetics, to handicrafts and souvenirs to clothing. You don't have to worry about carrying all the stuff you buy, the public bus service is convenient, cheap and frequent. You can rent a car too, driving is similar to America i.e. right side of the road and the best thing is you don't have to get a new license to drive, US driving license is accepted. That takes a huge hassle out of the way. Shop keepers in Aruba welcome US currency, credit cards and travelers checks.
Eating out is a great in Aruba, there is a great deal of diversity of cuisines and flavors. The ambiances are mostly elegant, creative and casual. Service is great and echoes the typical Caribbean hospitality. For those who enjoy gastronomic adventures, on offer is classical delicacies such as frogs' legs, duck, venison, foie gras and chateaubriand. Fresh Caribbean catch including mahi-mahi and wahoo are also on offer.
Those like me who are into outdoors there are the turquoise waters of the Caribbean sun-kissed beaches. There are amazingly beautiful hiking trails in the Arikok National Park, the Casibari and Ayo Rock Formations. Culture and history aficionados can enjoy the new state-of-the-art Archaeology Museum and the fascinating Numismatic Museum.
I can go on and on about Aruba, but the best thing for you to do is to plan your next holiday. Only personal experience can make you aware of how amazing a holiday in Aruba can be.
See you in Aruba.
