Aruba is well-known for its wide variety of restaurants (we have over 250 of them) offering the best in Caribbean food; ranging from award-winning restaurants booked months in advance to small outdoorsy local diners, from beachfront, toes-in the-sand dining to uber-trendy bistros where the local hipsters hang out. - that and so much more!

So for foodies there is absolutely No. Better. Time. To. Come. To. Aruba than in October, when Aruba restaurants are celebrating our culinary heritage with locally inspired dishes during the Eat Local Restaurant Month Aruba!

In this blog post our food-loving staff went out on a little culinary excursion (trust me, they didn’t mind), to highlight 6 restaurants going above and beyond in celebrating our local Aruban cuisine:

This September, I had the privilege of traveling to Aruba for the first time, thanks to the second annual ATECH conference. The conference brought together entrepreneurs, tech startups and innovators from all over the world for three days in arguably the best place to host a conference on the planet -- Palm Beach, Aruba.

I spent a solid portion of my time in Aruba at the Aruba at the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino, where the conference was held. It was an incredible experience to meet, hang out with, and hear from so many talented, diverse entrepreneurs, however, I have to say that my most memorable experiences happened when I ventured away from the resort and explored all that Aruba has to offer.
