Aruba for Kids

Is Aruba For Families?

Aruba is definitely a family island. Aruba does not even offer any advertised "couples only" resorts. Admittedly, there is one resort which has an "adult only" tower and a resort which is "adult only",  but this is far from the norm.

Most resorts offer Kids Clubs and those which do, some are free of charge.
All of the resorts in Aruba offer fresh water swimming pools. The Hyatt & La Cabana have waterslides. The Radisson, Holiday Inn & Playa Linda offer zero entry pools.

For families with children 12 years of age and younger, One Cool Family Vacation is an excellent summer program for families to participate in. Kids receive free accommodations, free daily breakfast as well as a free gift and many discounts.

My favorite picks for things to do with kids are:

Butterfly Farm
Donkey Sanctuary
Aruba Ostrich Farm
Snorkeling at Boca Catalina
