Curacao vs. Aruba

Jump to last reply

I am in the very early stages of planning a trip for this summer. I am debating between Curacao and Aruba. Any thoughts on this would be very helpful. We want to stay at a hotel on the beach, but we are not necessarily looking for a "beach vacation." We love the atmosphere, but are not into any of the watersports, so that isn't a factor in our decision.

We want to stay in a 4 or 5 star hotel. We like to explore the area to get a feel for the local culture. We enjoy sightseeing, visiting museums, traditional foods, etc. We are from Ft. Lauderdale but we want to feel like we are in another country, not just a tropical island (if that makes sense).

We have been to Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, and Mexico, so if there is any comparison to these places, that would be helpful too. I look forward to your replies!
