Vegan Vacationista, Jessica Percy Campbell, gives you a bite out of her vegan experiences on our One Happy Island.
Daughter of famous travel journalist Susan Campbell, Jessica Percy Campbell, has been traveling to Aruba for years. Following in her mom's footsteps, she has become a travel blogger herself. In this article she writes about her experiences with vegetarian food in Aruba.
Ahh, Aruba. The picturesque sunsets over the ocean, the blindingly white sand beaches, the aqua green waters, the friendly vibe–they don’t call it “One Happy Island” for nothing! A little bit off the beaten path from the usual spring break hotspots, Aruba remains one of the hidden finds of the Dutch Caribbean. Seventeen miles off the coast of Venezuela, this precious little island may be just a little dot on a map, but those who have been there know the secret: Aruba is a true paradise.
I’m lucky enough to have traveled to Aruba a handful of times with my mom Sue Campbell (being a travel-writer herself, Aruba is her favorite spot on Earth!) and each time I’ve had to reluctantly drag my feet back onto the plane to head back home. After hitting up countless awesome local restaurants and resorts over the last five years there, let me tell you about the absolute best vegetarian food I’ve eaten on that island, and trust me, my standards are sky high.
