An experience that is worth every cent
Live safely and comfortably on an island that boasts more character than many major metropolitans around the world. All the products you are used to are available in Aruba, with a plethora of options for eating out, making life on the island one happy experience. Whether you’re looking for fine dining or something quick and on-the-go, restaurants in Aruba serve up nothing but quality.
Comprehensive medical treatment
Aruba has one of the best healthcare systems in the Caribbean, with four medical centers including a state-of-the-art hospital in the capital city of Oranjestad. The 280-bed Horacio Oduber Hospital has been in business since 1976 and offers pro-air ambulance service to all major cities in the United States, Colombia, and the Netherlands. Additionally, Instituto Medico in San Nicolas, Urgent Care Aruba (UCA) at the Noord Medical Center, and the MedCare Aruba in Noord provide a strong network of medical care. Most expats and remote workers opt for international health insurance as a comprehensive and cost-effective means for health care expenses while residents enjoy coverage by the National Health Insurance Aruba.
A haven for thrill-seekers and relaxation enthusiasts
Aruba’s prosperous economy means everyone on the island gets involved in and enjoys the same activities as visitors. Spend the morning windsurfing or sailing in a luxury catamaran at one of the beaches on the west coast. With an average temperature of 82, endlessly soothing trade winds and only 16 inches of rain each year, there’s always a reason to get outside in Aruba. Venture to downtown Oranjestad during the day and visit the historical museum housed inside the oldest building on the island, the Fort Zoutman. In the evening take a scenic horseback ride or go on an island adventure in an air-conditioned motor coach or off-road vehicle. And who can forget a romantic or a friendly escapade on one of the many cruise lines along the Palm Beach piers?
DINING & NIGHTLIFE
More to Experience in Aruba
Aruba’s Palm Beach strip is a vivacious stretch of approximately two miles, filled with cafés, restaurants, bars, shops and clubs. In Oranjestad, happy hours and cocktail parties are commonplace, and numerous beach and pier bars on the southwest coast of the city invite casual nights out with friends. An eclectic offering is always on the menu at restaurants on the far end of Oranjestad at the high-rise strip. From fresh Caribbean mahi-mahi to Spanish tapas, Aruban dining is an adventure in worldwide culinary delights. At the southeastern tip of Aruba lies San Nicolas, the cultural capital of the island filled with museums, murals, and regular festivals like Island Festival Aruba and the Grand Carnival Parade.
