Pelican Adventures in Aruba

Aruba Weekend Getaways

Our island might be small, yet the options are endless to have fun weekend getaways in Aruba; for guys, girls, families

Getaways to Aruba

Thinking of planning a weekend getaway to Aruba? We highly recommend a trip to our island, even if it’s only for a few days. Aruba offers a multitude of options, whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or an active mini vacation. 

Active weekend getaways

For adventurers, the choices during a weekend in Aruba are endless: from sky-diving to kite surfing and deep sea fishing. Catch your own and grill it later-on, or have it prepared for you at a local restaurant of your choice. Have the coolest water ride of your life with Seabob where you feel like a dolphin with James Bond speed, or on the JetLev, soaring up to 30 feet in the air. Or spend some time at one of our two gorgeous golf courses with a choice of 9-hole and an 18-hole green. 

Romantic weekend getaways

Sometimes a romantic weekend with your significant other is all you need. You will not only fall in love with the island, but also with each other. Whether you’ve just started dating or are celebrating your 30th anniversary. Pack your most beautiful summer outfit, so you can have a romantic dinner together at one of our local restaurants while looking your best. At night, enjoy Aruba's bars, nightlife, and casinos and taste Aruba's own rum, Balashi beer or the island's wide selection of craft beers.

Family weekend getaways

Planning some quality time with your family? Why don’t you book a weekend trip to Aruba? You will have a ton of fun, and great weather guaranteed. There are plenty of activities to enjoy with the entire family, such as our very accessible beaches with shallow, calm waters; colourful magic at Aruba's Butterfly Farm or exotic encounters at the Ostrich Farm; water park fun with slides and unique underwater experiences at De Palm Island; snorkel sails, Jeep safaris, the list is endless. Don’t forget to check out the family resorts and hotels on our island. Parents can rest assured that there will be plenty of fun things for the entire family to enjoy.

Relaxing weekend getaways

Looking for a relaxing Caribbean weekend getaway? Aruba is the perfect island if that’s the kind of break you have in mind. There’s more than a dozen day spas where you can certainly experience some relaxation. Although we are pretty sure than a nice long day at the beach will take some stress off your mind as well.
