    New Year's Eve Celebrations in Aruba

    Has anyone seen any New Year's celebrations in Aruba? If so where is the best place to see the fireworks?

    We are planning to be in Aruba for New Year's Eve.

    Regards.

    Seriously, ANYWHERE in Aruba is a great place to be for fireworks. Do a search on youtube.com for Aruba new year fireworks and you will see the results. Here is only one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQ3Yqagwx5I

    Up and down Palm Beach, Eagle Beach or Druif Beach I am sure will be good as well as the Lighthouse.

    I know the Divi had fireworks from a small barge anchored between the Divi and Tamarijn across from the Divi Village and Windows on Aruba. Surely was good enough for us!

    Since the RIU Palace has opened, I've been watching the fireworks from there. Then this New Year's I went down to Bugaloe's to watch the fireworks on the beach.

    MIDNIGHT! Just walk across the street from the Divi Village, bring your favorite beverage and pull up a chaise lounge with a view skyward!

    Fireworks are all over the island for the week of New Years. Ling and Sons sets off a large display of fireworks on December 30th. Tons of people go there and they have some fun festivities. December 31st they light fireworks called pagara downtown all day long. At midnight going into New Years fireworks light up the sky in Aruba. Anywhere you turn your head you will be sure to see some fireworks. I hope you enjoy. I will also be there for New Years and its my favorite time, besides carnival, to be there! Any questions feel free to ask.
