The Happy Information Officers are a one-stop shop of information, staffed by friendly, professional and trained officers with extensive local knowledge. They can provide you with reliable information on attractions, activities and events, help you with any questions you may have or give you up-to-the-minute advice for your vacation in Aruba.

To ensure your access to them, the Happy Information Officers are mobile and can be found in numerous areas across the island, including the city center, the Cruise terminal and Palm beach area. You can recognize them by their sea green t-shirts featuring the happy information slogan.

In addition, we also offer an Aruba tourism kiosk located at Plaza Daniel Leo straight across the renaissance entrance, at the entrance of the main street. Here you will also find a Happy Information Officer ready to help.

Wherever you go, look out for the Happy Information Officers to help you get the most out of your stay in Aruba.
