Educate yourself and experience first hand how the healing miracle plant aloe became Aruba's number one export product.

Back in 1840, the aloe vera wonder plant was introduced in Aruba. Soon, two-thirds of Aruba's surface was covered with aloe vera plants and Aruba became the world's largest aloe exporter.

The first aloe vera plants were planted on 150 acres of land at the Hato plantation which is still used today to grow the aloe for all Aruba aloe products. You can visit the aloe plantation, along with our aloe museum and factory during daily guided tours.

Our tour guides will explain you all about the aloe plant and its uses and you will have the opportunity to learn all about the 160-year old aloe history of Aruba in the museum which is a national depository for ancient aloe tools and equipment with a complete library on the history, manufacture and qualities of aloe vera.

All Aruba Aloe body, sun and hair care products can be purchased at our factory store.
