It's not just the stunning beaches and crystal clear waters that make the One Happy Island a true gem.

Aruba is also home to an unexpected treasure: the mighty Aloe Vera plant. This succulent has been cultivated here for over a century and is renowned for its healing properties and health benefits.

But wait, there's more! If you're looking to spice up your cultural game, Aruba's Aloe Vera factory and museum are a must-visit. Get ready to dive into the fascinating history of this desert plant, and have some fun while you’re at it.

Aruba’s Aloe Vera (one of the finest in the world)
Yes, the Aloe Vera in Aruba is so special that an entire museum is dedicated to it. Are you up for a history lesson?

As early as 1840, the first Aloe Vera was brought to the island. And with success: the climate and soil conditions ensured healthy, growing and medicinal plants. Soon, two-thirds of the island’s surface was covered with Aloe Vera - and the Aloe farms in Aruba together became one of the world's largest exporters in the world.

This is just a glimpse of the fascinating story of Aruba's Aloe Vera. The factory and museum will tell you much, much more....
