Aruba is famous for its superb beaches, wind-sculpted landscapes, and some of the best wreck diving in the Caribbean. This relatively dry island enjoys consistently fine weather, and sitting as it does in the far south of the Caribbean, it’s generally out of the path of most hurricanes. When you visit Aruba, plan to experience some of these attractions and activities.
Tipping in Aruba is not mandatory, but is at your discretion. Please note that certain restaurants and bars will add a service charge of 10 – 15% to your bill. You may supplement this for exemplary service, if you wish. Don’t be tempted to take your rented off-road vehicle into the dunes; this is strictly prohibited to protect them from damage. It’s better to get out and walk among the dunes. You’ll see everything better and preserve their beauty for others to appreciate as well.
