Christmas food, the Aruban way

Aruba Bound

All countries have their holiday traditions. For most, food plays a big role in those traditions. Aruba is no different.

We love food all year round, but during the holiday season, it’s also about our love for the people around us. You can taste the love in every version of a roasted Christmas ham. All are similar but unique to each family. It reminds us of when we were kids, sitting at grandma’s house. For me, at least, Christmas food on Christmas Day is what made me feel both homesick and joyful at the same time when I was living abroad. Cooking the same recipes I grew up with, but now for my own family. That is what I want for you. To feel like you’re here in Aruba, wherever you are, this holiday season. Read MORE

Required Eating: 10 Meals Not to Miss in Aruba

Taste your way through Aruba’s diverse cuisine with stuffed cheese, conch stew, savory pastries, and more.

Aruba Bound

If you can pry yourself away from Aruba’s idyllic beaches, epicurean adventures abound for curious palates. Challenged with growing produce on a small, arid island, early Arubans ate what was easily available, including soups and stews of goat, chicken, or seafood; cheese casseroles stuffed with what was left in the larder; and, of course, the catch of the day. Over time, however, the more than 90 nationalities that call the island home have created a rich gastronomic tapestry, complete with flavors from the Caribbean, North and South America, Indonesia, Asia, Europe, and more.

Congratulations to the Donkey Sanctuary Aruba Upon Celebrating Their 25th Anniversary

Aruba Bound
The first donkeys came to Aruba from Spain at the end of the 1400’s. They were imported because there was a need for means of transportation for people and goods. Early in the 20th century there were some 1400 donkeys on the island.

Everything was fine until the first cars hit the roads; in the 1950’s the number of cars had increased a lot and donkeys became redundant. They were released in Aruba’s countryside and that was not always a good idea: the Aruban donkey became almost extinct; this was due to measures of the government as well as to car accidents.
