Vacationing in Aruba should be about relaxing, having fun, and connecting with family and friends. One of the best ways to ensure that your trip goes smoothly is to think ahead as to what you might need on your vacation - and then pack accordingly. No one wants to haul an 80-lb. luggage bag around an airport, but neither do you want to get to your destination and realize that you have packed so lightly that you immediately need to find a store and buy half a dozen things that you should have packed. Using a packing list can help you to narrow down what you want to bring and then not forget to actually bring those things.
The first thing to think about when packing for a vacation is what type of documentation and paperwork one will need. A forgotten swimsuit can be easily replaced upon arrival, but it is much harder to replace personal identification documents.
Aruban stores, restaurants, hotels, and tour companies all accept U.S. currency, so there is no need to convert your money before coming. It is good to think about how the money is going to be used so that you know what type of money to bring.
Going to a new place, sleeping at different times, and eating different foods can sometimes make the body feel a little bit off. It is smart to pack a small bag of medicines that can help to relieve discomfort, as well as some basic first aid items. Rest assured though, Aruban pharmacies and drugstores sell all the same brands as back home.
Toiletries are a necessity, but sometimes frustrating to pack – they are bulky and add a lot of weight to luggage. Many travelers prefer to pick up toiletries once they reach their destination and after they see what the hotel already has available. No matter where the items are purchased, the following items are needed on a vacation.
There are hundreds of opportunities for adventure in Aruba, but bringing a couple of media entertainment items can help with long flights and relax in the hotel at the end of the day.
The temperature in Aruba is usually right around 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the day, so light summery clothing is advised. Pack clothing for a variety of activities, including both casual and more formal events.
Sitting on the white sandy beaches of Aruba is an amazing experience, but the fun can be cut short if one is not adequately prepared for the sun.
The most important thing to remember is to not get stressed in case you forget something; Aruba has multiple full-service shopping malls, large supermarkets with American products and there are always 2 pharmacies open throughout the night.
Just relax and enjoy your Aruba Vacation; you deserve it
