Aruba is just small enough to allow for cycling enthusiasts to enjoy this desert island's exotic terrain. Because some of the roads throughout the island are sandy, a mountain bike is the way to go. The terrain is mainly flat so you won't get exhausted peddling up steep hills.
The weather is generally hot and sunny, but cyclists will appreciate Aruba's cooling trade winds. Nevertheless, it is always advised to go armed with plenty of sunscreen to battle the elements. Bicycles can be rented at facilities such as touring companies and rental agencies in Oranjestad. Check with your hotel for touring companies that have group excursions, in the event that you would like to join one.
