ARUBA CARNIVAL 2016 - 5 REASONS WHY IT IS GOOD FOR YOU!

In Aruba we end and start the New Year with a BANG! The moment the clock struck 12 ringing in 2016, Arubans were prepping for the Biggest Party of the Year: ARUBA CARNIVAL, which some say is actually the most wonderful time to visit Aruba. One thing is for sure, it certainly is the best remedy for your holiday blues. Check out these 5 reasons Why Aruba Carnival is Good For you! 

  1. BEST CURE FOR HOLIDAY BLUES

There is absolutely no way you can stay depressed when you are in Aruba during Carnival season, as Arubans tend to forget all the holiday drama and going overboard on the holiday gifts and what not. Even though we might hit the ground running in the New Year, there is always that little festive tone in the back of our minds: Carnival is here, carnival is here!! (YEEH!!) So let us entice you with our jolly carnival spirit and cure your holiday blues!

  1. FUN WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT FAST

Girls, how many of us have this as our nr 1. resolution: Lose weight fast? Well, let me tell you that there is NO BETTER WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT FAST than by jumping in our Carnival Parades! Sweating off the extra holiday weight whilst dancing to sweet soca music is the way to go! *Do minimize your alcohol/calorie intake, or else point 2 won’t work.

  1. EXPERIENCE OUR CULTURE

Aruba is home to over 120 nationalities, and carnival is the perfect time to gawk at our different kinds of people. @Men: the most beautiful women dance by you covered in the bare minimum of feathers, sequins and rhinestones. Besides that, carnival groups creatively express different cultural phenomena as the bands play a variety of Caribbean music such as Soca, Tumba, Steel Pan, Brass Band and Roadmarch.

  1. BE PART OF THE FUN

Many tourists fly to Aruba just to be part of the Carnival parades, for obvious reasons (see above) But do you know that you can also be part of the fun? Dance like a local? Drink like a local? Let loose like a local! It’s the perfect time to Relax and Renew.

  1. AN ARUBA VACATION

Well, besides all the carnival fun, an Aruba Vacation is always a good investment in your overall well-being. Relaxing on the pristine white sands of our beaches, soaking up the tropical sun and floating in the warm waters of our Caribbean sea whilst the constant trade winds refresh you; these are just some ways our island will elevate your spirit.

If these reasons aren’t enough for you to come down here for Carnival, here is another one: BOOZE. Yes that’s right, you can become absolutely plastered and no one will judge you. Just promise to take a cab back to your hotel :)

About Aruba Carnival: 

Aruba’s carnaval is a month long celebration consisting of festive “jump-ups” (street parties), spectacular parades, and musical events.  Dazzling costumes and music play a central role in events ranging from the queen elections to the Grand Parades, which wind their way down the streets of San Nicolas and Oranjestad to the delight of thousands of spectators.
