Relax in a luxury rental in Oranjestad

The charming city of Oranjestad is one of the best places for an Aruba luxury vacation. Blending historic charm with contemporary attractions, Oranjestad is located on the harbor and offers an array of luxury retailers, indie boutiques, high-end jewelry stores, and historic landmarks, so there's always something to see and do. When the sun goes down, Oranjestad comes alive with restaurants, cafés, nightclubs, bars, casinos, and lounges for a night on the town. Oranjestad is also close to the beach, so you can venture out of the city to enjoy time in the sun with the family.

Things to do

Dance with Oranjestad locals at Bon Bini

Aruba is awash with attractions, many of which cater to families with young ones. There are few kids that won't be bowled over by a visit to the Aruba Ostrich Farm to see the 80-strong herd of flightless birds, or by time spent feeding the donkeys at the sanctuary near your Oranjestad vacation rental. Aruba has a fascinating human history which dates back as far as 2500 BC and the exhibits at the National Archeological Museum are packed with indigenous artifacts. If you're in town on a Tuesday, don't miss the weekly Bon Bini, a colorful festival of dance and music at Fort Zoutman.

Activities

Fish for your supper in Oranjestad

You could easily while away your days riffling through the mom-and-pop shops that flank the main drag, but there's plenty going on for those looking for a little more excitement. If you hop aboard one of the daily fishing charters, you can spend a challenging day catching powerful sailfish and tuna. If that's not your thing, you can learn to launch your kite and glide across the surf, or attach flippers and mask to dive into the deep and see exotic fish among the remains of a WWII German freighter. Landlubbers can lace up their boots to hike up the Hooiberg, a volcanic formation just outside the city.

Weather

Oranjestad is a truly year-round Caribbean island

The busiest time in Aruba is between December and March, when the weather is warm and families escape the winter blues back home. It gets particularly busy around the festive season, so book up quick if you want to see some winter sun over Christmas. That said, this Caribbean island lies well outside the hurricane belt and suffers little chance of storms. If you bag an Oranjestad vacation rental between April and August, when the prices take a nosedive, you'll still have gorgeous weather, the beaches will be emptier and the year-round trade winds mean water sports like windsurfing are still on the cards.

Natural features

Oranjestad is a gateway to Arikok National Park

Other than the surrounding sea, where snorkelers and divers are treated to the fascinating sights of coral beds and marine life, there are few places better for wildlife viewing than Aruba's Arikok National Park. If you join a park ranger for a hike, or horseback ride through the rugged park made up of unique limestone and lava formations, you'll come across plenty of the island's indigenous flora and fauna. Look out for Aruban cat-eyed snakes and whiptail lizards on the ground, and don't miss catching a glimpse of Aruban parakeets and burrowing owls.
