Aruba is world-famous for its perfect beaches, relaxing breezes and calm waters, but there are also adventurous land and sea activities to make any level of thrillseeker happy. From challenging hiking and bike trails, to windsurfing, kayaking, wreck diving and even skydiving, Aruba is an ideal adventure vacation.
Get your heart racing on a helicopter tour of the island, or take it up a notch by sky diving and catching the most breathtaking view you’ve ever seen. Scale the Ayo and Casibari Rock Formations, or explore the “wild side” of Aruba in Arikok National Park, where you’ll find dramatic coastlines and ancient caves. You can hike, bike or add a little extra adrenaline with a jeep or an ATV.
If you’re into water sports, you’ll be surrounded by fun. Thanks to our constant trade winds, Aruba is ranked as one of the best places to windsurf and kitesurf in the world. There’s also parasailing, jet skiing, sailing, paddle boarding and much more.
If the sea calls, book a deep-sea fishing excursion, a scuba diving trip or snorkel adventure. Aruba’s entire south coast is a coral reef, with over twenty dive sites and eleven diver-friendly wrecks such as planes, a cargo ship, and sunken war ships. Aruba has been called the wreck-diving Capital of the Caribbean.
