EventsIn Aruba’s festive atmosphere, you can always find something to celebrate. Every Tuesday evening, visitors groove to live steel drum music, browse local arts and crafts, and indulge in delicious food and drink at the Bon Bini Festival at the Historical Museum. Annual festivals are scattered liberally throughout the year and kick off with the month-long Aruba Carnival Season from early January to early February. This festive celebration includes music, parades, and dancing in the streets. Other popular events include the Dera Gai Celebration in June, the Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival in September, and holiday Sinterklaas Arrival and Parade in November.
Aruba’s flavorful Caribbean cuisine takes inspiration from several cultures including African, East Indian, and Amerindian. Don’t miss the Keshi yena, a baked dish featuring spiced meat or seafood with a rich Gouda or Edam cheese. Cool island soup is another local specialty with a refreshing blend of island fruits. Lunch is the largest meal of the day here. Keep in mind that many locally owned restaurants close for lunch and dinner on Sunday and may close for dinner Monday as well.
The nightlife in Aruba doesn’t pick up until about midnight. Salsa dancing and rum drinks abound, and you won’t have any trouble finding a dance club or live music. Though open air bars and terrace dining are among the more popular options, the casinos pick up at night as well.
