Aruba Activities

Renaissance Marina
Be active, go deep-sea fishing, several boats are available for charter

I sometimes read comments online from people who complain on how there’s nothing much to do in Aruba besides beaches, casinos and restaurants. Clearly that’s someone who isn’t aware of all the activities this island has got to offer.

As the amount of travelers to Aruba increased steadily over the last decade, so has the variety of activities and excursions. Perhaps 10 years ago criticism as in the first paragraph where true, in the present not any more. After the jump 40 activities and excursion randomly picked off the top of my head (ordered alphabetically):
