A Local’s Guide to Wellness

Aruba is blessed with a bounty of natural beauty. A perfect little paradise to center yourself and refresh your mind, body and soul. Let Aruba local, and wellness expert, Shanti, show you some of her favorite ways to relax and renew on Aruba.

Favorite Spots

Shanti’s Perfect Day

To center myself, I start in the center of the island with sunrise meditation at the huge magical boulders at Casibari. From there, a trip to Arikok National Park where I can hike along the coastline with crashing waves. One of my special secluded places to relax is Boca Keto, which means “quiet cove.” Aruba’s local Aloe is the best in the entire world, so an aloe facial is always on my list of favorites. I end the day on the white sands of Eagle Beach with a yoga session, and the gorgeous Aruba sunset.
