Aruba Travel Guide

San Nicolas

During the oil refinery heyday, Aruba's oldest village was a bustling port; now its primary purpose is tourism. The major institution in town is Charlie's Restaurant & Bar. Stop in for a drink and advice on what to see and do in this little town. Aruba's main red-light district is here and will be fairly apparent to even casual observers.
