Bus tour of the island. Long distances, lots of time on the bus. The tour guides were very passionate about their country. Ladies, they charge you to use public toilets in all these cnntral American countries so remember to take some change and dollar notes with you. Toilets are clean.

This was a great and informative excursion. I would recommend this excursion. Note, because of the distance travel, made sure you use the rest room before departing. Some location don't have a rest room while others may charge for using the facility.

Nothing special. This and the ostrich farm were part of the same excursion. The lighthouse and the ostrich farm were good photo ops. It was a unique experience to take a photo of our actually feeding the ostriches.

Campbell, our guide, made the day. Nice, fun, friendly manner. His pride in Aruba is obvious. Proved a wonderful overview of many aspects of Arubian Culture. Aloe Factory was interesting. Sea views were breath-taking.

It is closed. It is always closed. You show up only to buy $8 drinks from trucks in the parking lot.

Great place to visit. The people are wonderful and a great deal of history to be learned....The Safari Jeep Tour was awsome, would recommend it to anyone.

Aruba was very nice, but sadly we were there on New Year's day so everything was closed. This is the perfect spot for the beach as the beaches are gorgeous. However, if you are not a beach-goer be sure to book this port of call during the week, or for a Saturday. Sundays and holidays leave the downtown area rather quite.
The day we went it was 40 degrees C/104 degrees F, so it was too hot to stay on island for very long. We got off the ship around 10h00, took a little excursion, walked downtown and were back on the boat by 12h30. If you like it hot, this place is perfect.

This is a lighthouse. You could drive by it and yep, seen it. But, instead, this was a 15-minute stop. Surely just to get you to spend money at the food stand and bathroom.
