Where to Stay Relax at the European-style Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts, complete with a beach, spa and outdoor dining (garden rooms start at around $311 per night). If you want to mix things up, check into the centrally located Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino (rooms start at around $196). The hotel provides a small boat to take you to its private island 10 minutes away. Or stake out a spot by the 8,000-square-foot pool at the Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Casino & Spa on the island's more popular Palm Beach (rooms start at $335).
Where to Eat Enjoy seafood straight off the grill at Pinchos Grill & Bar, a restaurant on a pier. Try the Aruban wahoo fillet (expect to pay $20 to $30 per entree) and leave room for dessert. Or sit at a table on the sand at The Old Man and the Sea, where there's lots of room between you and your neighbors, or reserve a private Pampered in Paradise prix-fixe dinner so you get a front-row seat for the sunset ($96 per person at Hyatt Regency).
What to Do See the island on a De Palm Land Rover Tour ($99 per person for four and a half hours), which takes you on an adrenaline-pumping ride along Aruba's rockier beaches and past sights such as the Gold Mill Ruins, Alto Vista Chapel and the California Lighthouse. Don't miss Aruba's Natural Pool, one of the most romantic, unique spots, where you can swim and snorkel in a secluded lagoon. Looking to explore by sea? Check out the underwater view on the Atlantis Submarines Tour ($105 per person). Into golf? Spend a day at the scenic Tierra del Sol course. Snorkeling, horseback riding and just lying low on the beach are options too.
What to Pack The weather is consistently warm in Aruba, but there's usually a strong breeze. Bring a windbreaker for walking on the beach at night—and plenty of hair ties.
