First Time Aruba Visitors

What to do in Aruba?

First off, if you are a couple and not a family see Romance with Your Soulmate.

For a first time visitor, depending on the season, renting a car for a week is relatively inexpensive and you could explore the island and shop at your own pace.

If you plan on spending most of your time on the beach just relaxing, then renting a vehicle for week when it is mainly going to sit in the parking lot of your resort, may be a waste of money. The big advantage of staying along Palm Beach is the fact that there are so many activities within walking distance.

Bunny would welcome friends and family members

Aruba Bound
We would like to introduce Bunny to you, one of the donkeys that has found a home at the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary. Together with her son Maestro she was roaming the island and that is a hazardous occupation. Lots of traffic and wild dogs make life very difficult for a roaming donkey. It took quite a few tries, but finally our volunteers succeeded in capturing the two donkeys by luring them into a garden at Rooi Master. Bunny was named Bunny because of the fact that she was caught around Easter; Maestro refers to Master, as in Rooi Master. But Bunny had a treat for us: two weeks after being caught she delivered a baby boy, whom we baptized Amadeus. So here we are proudly presenting Bunny, Maestro and Amadeus, a great little donkey family.
