We were so happy to take a vacation to the island of Aruba, also known as one happy island! Wow it was gorgeous! Aruba has a ton of things to explore and do although I spent most of my time relaxing in the sun working on my tan. (SPF 30+ recommended) Aruba is a bloggers paradise with all the bright colored walls everywhere and picture perfect beaches.
My top recommendations would include visiting Flamingo Beach on the Renaissance Private Island. It’s definitely a must and a hidden gem not many seem to know about. You can order lunch and champagne, rent a float for $5, feed the flamingos for .25 cents (for treats), and just enjoy life swinging in a hammock over the ocean! This beach is SO relaxing. I would have spent every day there! Don’t forget you bug spray!
You can also go snorkeling, take a boat ride or day tour, head to the Natural Pool, or do a little shopping at The Royal Plaza Mall where you’ll find the prettiest of pink colors among some amazing Dutch architecture! Oh and don’t forget to stop by a casino play roulette ($20 on black). I walked out with a quick $40 winnings! Whoop!
