Oranjestad, Aruba in July. Many wonders?

Jump to last reply

My mother and I are going to Oranjestad, Aruba this July and I have many questions. The cost of the resort is done and the plane tickets will be done soon. The rest of the trip depends on how we can spare our money.

Is it a different currency in Aruba than in America? If so, what is it?

How are the beaches? Any preferences?

What is the best place to horse back ride?

How clear are the waters?

What is in the national park on that island?

What other things should I do?

How safe is the environment and the resorts?

Is there a place we can rent mopeds for the week?

My mother and I are trying to get the absolute most out of this trip. We plan to barely sleep at all.

    I love Aruba and I have always felt very safe there. The US money is accepted everywhere there no worries about money at all. Where is your resort? Where are you staying?

    I have not found the water in Aruba to be as clear as some other islands but it all depends on other factors. I have seen a horsebackriding tour although I have not taken that.

    Are your Mother and yourself adventureous? If so I would recommend ABC jeep tours and all day event that will take you where a car could never go. You will get a great tour of the island, swim at the natural bridge, snorkel or swim at baby beach. If not take another tour that includes all of that, but not as rough. ABC was for the adventourous type and quite a bit rocky. There is also Depalm island tour which is not as rough but incudes all the sites. They go either by jeep or van but I would recommend the jeep tours. They are so fun!

    They do have those 3 wheelers that you can rent I am not familiar with moped rentals. Sorry.

    There is also a great site aruba.com if you access that site you will find a wealth of great info there.

    Aruba is well known for there wonderful restaurants but since you did not mention that I assume that is not a priority.

    There is also a kunucko bus(?) that is a party bus. They pick you up and you go for dinner, a sunset beach champagne toast, then bar hopping to 3 different places. They get you home at midnight or so. This is a fun thing to do with usually fun people. You will find plenty to do and I hope you love Aruba after visiting. It is a great island, with wonderful friendly people.
