June is Aloe Wellness Month; Come to Aruba for a Replenishing Getaway!

Vacations can be filled with fun, action, exciting nightlife, and adventure, and Aruba is the place to tick off all those boxes.

But vacations are also about decompressing, relaxing, refreshing, and rejuvenating—kind of like a mental and physical reboot to prepare you for life back in the real world again. 

This June 9th, Global Wellness Day will be celebrated around the world. First established in Turkey in 2012 as a day dedicated to creating awareness to living well, the hope is that “one day can change your whole life.”  Here on Aruba, we hope one vacation can make the difference!  For the entire month of June, the island will celebrate a holistic approach to vacations with the third annual Aloe Wellness Month Aruba. 

Select hotels will be participating with special packages tailored with wellness-related activities focused on health, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Chefs are sharpening their knives to prepare nourishing menus and also orchestrate dynamic, interactive cooking classes and demos with guests focused on healthy cuisine.  Fitness classes, yoga sessions, and nature-inspired activities like kayaking, SUP, and hiking will also be highlighted. Aruba’s day spas are also participating, incorporating the healing wonders of Aruba Aloe into various treatments. 

Here are some highlights of specials, packages, and activities to look forward to this June:
