Aruba, one happy island

Aruba, one happy island - Palapas on the white sand beach with clear blue water
Palapas on the white sand beach with clear blue water

One happy island, the motto of Aruba, is very true and well chosen. Mostly known for its beach with flamingoes, which is actually a private hotel beach that cannot be access by non hotel guests, Aruba is a first choice destination for weddings and stag parties, mostly by americans. It has plenty of beautiful beaches, clear blue water all around, great hotels and other accomodations, but what makes it special is the friendliness of the inhabitants, which are offering plenty of activities for all taste, of course mostly related to water fun in the Carribean sea.

Quiet restaurant with large terrace, close to the shopping area of Palm Beach. It offers good cocktails, large burgers, and sometimes even nice guests as the iguana on the picture.

The funniest and friendliest activity in Aruba, and probably the best party bus in the world, Kukoo Kunuku is a must do for party people on the happy island. Starting by a hotel pickup, at least at the most important hotels in Palm Beach, including the Hilton, guests are directly put in the mood by getting a maraca, making music while meeting new friends until the end of hotel pickup, and making as much noise as possible through the bus glasless windows. Then, the first stop is a glass of champagne on a beach watching the amazing Carribean sunset. The tour continues with a dinner, where everybody is mixed up on large tables, ideal to meet new people. And it continues with the visit of three different bars and clubs, all of them with a first drink included. Simply amazing !
