After the Big Day, nothing can relieve the wedding stress or ‘hangover’ like a relaxing Caribbean honeymoon!
Imagine lounging your tired body on a comfortable beach chair, set on a pristine white sand beach, with a cocktail in your hand, (we suggest an ArubaRiba) and gazing into the beautiful eyes of your one and only.
Or for the active honeymooner; explore natural island wonders by an ATV tour, participate in a beach tennis tournament, or face your fear of heights by skydiving. Which-ever type of honeymooner you are, Aruba has the perfect elements to be one of the best Caribbean honeymoon destinations for 2017.
So, you’re researching where to go for your honeymoon… and we suggest to you our island, Aruba. But Why Aruba? You probably wouldn’t be looking at Aruba if you didn’t want a Caribbean honeymoon to start with, meaning most probably you are looking for a beautiful beach destination.
Lucky you! Aruba’s flagship beach, Eagle Beach, just won the 2017 TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Award for 3rd Best Beach in the World! And we have more of those; Arashi beach, Baby Beach, and Palm Beach are all award winners and featured on various best beaches lists.
Aruba's world-famous Eagle Beach
So Aruba has these fantastic beaches, but what sets it apart from the rest of the Caribbean? Well, for starters, the chance of rain on your well-deserved, and much anticipated, honeymoon in Aruba is slim to none. Aruba is the island with the most sunny days in the entire Caribbean, but that’s not all, because we’re also uniquely situated outside of the southern hurricane belt, ensuring that your honeymoon will be weather-worry-free.
With one of the highest GDPs in the Caribbean, Aruba is also a safe Caribbean honeymoon destination.
Unlike some of the other Caribbean honeymoon destinations, on Aruba, you aren’t confined to hotel properties, but can explore all that the island has to offer, including meeting with the friendly locals, such as us. For years, visitors have agreed that one of the most unique factors to Aruba is our people, which set us sets apart from the other Caribbean islands. In fact, are widely-regarded for being some of the friendliest, most open-hearted people you will ever meet. No wonder so many of our visitors end up booking return trips!
I’m sure you’ve all heard that Aruba is the One happy island, but this is not just a slogan! We incorporate happiness into everything we do. That’s why Aruba offers the One happy honeymoon program. If you book your stay with a participating resort or hotel you and your S.O. are treated to some romantic perks such as preferred check-in, a free bottle of champagne and even a free night when you return for your anniversary! On this program you are also entitled to some sweet discounts on tours, spa days, and other honeymoon-friendly activities!
Make a splash together
Something you will never run out of when visiting Aruba is a good time. There are plenty of fun activities for newlyweds to enjoy. Whether you’re an active couple ready to explore the rugged nature areas or a couple that wants their honeymoon to double as a relaxation retreat, Aruba is the best Caribbean island for honeymooning.
Some say adventure is what really solidifies a union, so why not have your first set of adventures together on the One happy island? Aruba is known for its beautiful beaches and luxurious resorts, but that’s not all the island has to offer! Explore the remote coves on the east coast of the island and take in the beauty of Aruba’s secluded seascapes.
Taking a dip in the Natural Pool
Arikok National Park – A trip to the Arikok National Park can be a different experience every time you go. The park occupies about 20% of the entire island! It is for this reason that the landscapes in the park are so beautifully diverse. A visit to Arikok can be a stroll at the beach, a cave hunting trip, a history lesson, a day at the pool and so much more. Bike, hike, or drive through the park and explore a side of Aruba you haven’t seen before.
A romantic horseback ride
Aruba on horseback – The animal loving couples among us can traverse the island on horseback. It is a unique way to get to know the island from (quite literally) a different angle. Saddle up and discover the hidden gems you won’t see on a traditional tour. This activity is great for any couple, from the professional cowboys to those who have never ridden a horse before. The following companies provide horseback riding tours.
On a UTV adventure with Fofoti Tours & Transfers
ATV & UTV tours – For the thrill-seeking newlyweds with a need for speed, ATV and UTV tours are a must. These tours are led by professional guides who will take you through the rugged northeast coast visiting historical sites and areas that simply cannot be reached without solid 4 wheel drive or an all-terrain vehicle. Adventure is just around the corner.
Aruba on the water
Aruba on the water and below sea level – Aruba’s beauty does not end at the shoreline! Ever considered taking a kayaking trip with your significant other? Get in a kayak and see where the waves take you. When you're all done discovering the surface, explore a whole new world under water. Snorkeling is a popular activity for visitors and locals alike. Rent some gear or bring your own, and get to know Aruba’s unique marine life together. Also check out this list of Aruba’s top-rated snorkeling beaches.
And for the more adventurous couple who’s ready to explore more of the deep blue, scuba diving is a perfect way to do so! Many boat tours will take you to Aruba’s top diving spots where stories of shipwrecks and life underwater tell themselves.
If either of you would rather stay dry while exploring the Caribbean sea, a trip in the Atlantis Submarine is the way to go. Get up close and personal with a variety of fish while enjoying informative commentary from your guide!
Dance the night away
Bust a Move – In Aruba there is an abundance of locations where people can hit the dancefloor and show what they’ve got. Whether you’re doing the Cha-Cha Slide on your resort’s pool deck or showing off your best moves at a beach bar, dancing is a great way to bring people together while having fun. For this reason, we highly recommend taking a dance class together while on your honeymoon. Perhaps it will awaken a new passion you and your S.O. can continue to enjoy back home. It’s okay if you’re not a natural, laughing at yourself (and at each other) will only enhance the experience! Check out some of Aruba’s dance schools below.
Island tours – Island tours are a great way to sit back and take in the environment around you while learning something new. Choose a private tour if you and your partner prefer a more personal experience. If you’re open to making some friends along the way, bus tours are recommended! The companies below provide memorable island tours.
Strolling along the beach at sunset
A day at the beach – Nothing exudes peacefulness like spending a day under a fofoti tree on one of our breezy beaches, and nothing embodies quality time like slathering a dollop of sunscreen on your partner’s back! Have breakfast at the beach together, food always tastes better with good company and in the right atmosphere. But please, do remember to clean up after yourselves, because Aruba has some of the cleanest beaches in the Caribbean, and we’d like to keep them that way.
After breakfast, spend the rest of the day beach hopping as each beach has its unique charms. Pick a favorite with your partner and stay there until evening falls. Then, stroll along the shore and enjoy the orange, yellow and pink hues of an Aruban sunset. Once it gets dark, lay those beach towels down and get lost in the moment as you gaze at the starry night together.
A couple's massage at the Eforea Spa
Get pampered – After a long period of wedding planning stress, it’s time to unwind and replenish your body and mind. A couples’ massage at one of Aruba’s many spas can work wonders! The spas listed below are dedicated to bringing tranquility to anyone who sets foot inside.
Great food, great views, and great company at White Modern Cuisine
You may be married now, but that doesn’t mean that your partner (or you) no longer needs wining and dining! Thankfully, Aruba has over 250 eateries to choose from. Allow your taste buds to travel the world while you keep your feet in the warm sands of Aruba at a beachfront restaurant, or treat yourselves to the wonders of authentic Aruban cuisine at a local spot.
The following restaurants take pride in the romantic dining experience they provide.
Since the Aruban community is a marriage of people from many different nationalities, over 120 to be exact, the island has a very rich culture to be immersed in!
