Activities in Aruba

Hi all

We are going to Aruba in October and as much as we love lazying on a beautiful beach we are also usually quite active.

Are there any active excursions we can do or places to hike and explore near Oranjestad ? Especially if the weather becomes overcast it would be nice to have thinks to do (hiking, snotkling, cycling, kayaking etc etc)? We also like to explore the culture of the places we go.

Any advise would be great 😊

Let's see:

For hiking: climb Mt. Hooiberg or wander about Arikok Park

Snorkeling abounds: take your pick of any number of places. Around Oranjestad consider Mangel Halto (will need some transportation to get there). If you have a car, also consider Malmok, Boca Catalina, and Arashi you can bet to these by bus as well - they are located on the North end of the Island and from them you can also hike up to the Lighthous - great view

Cycling and kayaking are available.

There are some museums which deal with some cultural aspects of Aruba - but we have found it best to just sit down with some locals and strike up a conversation.

There are also the casinos and the cultural shows at Paseo Herencia Mall) which is a bus or taxi ride from Oranjestad) and shopping.

Have a great trip. You won't get bored - unless you want to.
