The stunning country of Aruba was born from a melting pot of cultures. Such a mix is reflected in its foods, language, and festivities like Carnivale. The bright colors and the festive nature adopted from the indigenous people married well with the flavors and sensibilities of the Dutch and the Spanish, whom once occupied the region.
Located in the southern Caribbean Sea, eighteen miles off of the coast of Venezuela, Aruba’s sun filled days are perfect for leisurely sun bathing or for action packed adventures. The Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA) website, offers great ideas for lounging around the beach, scuba diving, snorkeling, horseback riding, and hiking. Then when hunger sets in after a fun filled day, check out one of Aruba’s many eclectic restaurants. Also listed by ATA are several options of where to eat categorized by cuisine. They include but are not limited to Asian, Seafood, Central/South American, Dutch-European, and North American.
