A Perfect Honeymoon In Aruba

Jan 27, 2008
When making lists of the world's most romantic destinations and best sites to enjoy a honeymoon, travel experts always include cities like Paris and Venice. In the last few years, the island of Aruba has found its way onto many of these lists. With luxurious accommodations, gorgeous beaches and an incredible array of activities, it is no wonder that so many newlyweds have fallen in love with this Caribbean destination. The island of Aruba even offers special discount packages through many of the best resorts designed especially for those celebrating their honeymoon. Whether you and your significant other are looking for an exciting party atmosphere or a peaceful romantic getaway, you will find what you are looking for in Aruba.

If you and your significant other are the partying types, Aruba certainly won't disappoint. Some of Aruba's best resorts feature live entertainment and casinos, while local dance clubs keep the fun going throughout the night. In Oranjestad, Aruba's cosmopolitan capital, bars generally don't start filling up until 10 or 11 pm, but remain open until 2 am. Afterwards, the excitement in Aruba's dance clubs peaks around 2 am with some establishments remaining open until the early morning. When couples combine a night in the clubs with a live stage show, a ride on one of the tour buses that run throughout the night and a few games at one of the 24-hour casinos, the result is the perfect way to start an exciting honeymoon in Aruba.

When the time comes to relax with your partner, Aruba offers plenty of great activities for the vacationing couple. Even if you don't have partying on your mind, you can sip cocktails and enjoy live jazz every night of the week in Aruba. Afterwards, enjoy a candlelit dinner aboard one of the island's many dinner cruises or simply watch the sunset from a world-class restaurant overlooking Palm Beach and the Caribbean Sea. You can then end your romantic evening with a moonlight stroll down one of the many beaches.

As the beaches are the most popular attraction in Aruba, vacationing couples won't want to miss what Aruba has to offer. Many of the best resorts in Aruba are located within a short walk of Palm Beach, one of the most famous stretches of sand in the Caribbean. The sand on Palm Beach is groomed daily, while the calm, warm water is perfect for swimming and active water sports. Those in search of a romantic setting should also visit a pair of beaches just south of Palm Beach. Lying just beyond a rocky outcropping is Eagle Beach, a piece of sand that promises plenty of space to relax in the sun. Continuing south, Manchebo Beach has become a favorite of vacationing romantics. As Manchebo Beach boasts the widest plot of sugary sand on the island and motorized water sports are prohibited, this lovely beach has maintained an atmosphere of exotic seclusion.

Shopping is also a popular activity for every couple celebrating their honeymoon in Aruba. The boutiques and shopping malls in Oranjestad sell everything from designer clothing and jewelry to distinctive Caribbean souvenirs and locally produced artwork. Along the harbor in downtown Oranjestad, you will find all types of shops and restaurants set amongst historic Dutch architecture and unbeatable scenery. At night, the narrow streets of the capital city are romantically illuminated in neon, as the bars and clubs open their doors to after-hours shoppers.

As if the promise of exotic surroundings and exciting activities wasn't enough to lure adventurous couples, Aruba has developed a special travel package for happy honeymooners. Known as 'One Cool Honeymoon,' the program offers couples a number of romantic perks and plenty of exclusive discounts. Supported by most of Aruba's best hotels and resorts, this special package usually includes a complementary bottle of champagne, lucrative discounts within the resorts and discounts throughout the island on everything from spa packages to guided tours. When making reservations in Aruba, newlyweds simply need to mention the offer and inquire about what type of documentation might be required when checking in under the 'One Cool Honeymoon' program.

If you and your partner are in search of the right destination for your honeymoon, look no further than Aruba. With perfect weather and plenty of activities to keep the romance going, you may just make a tradition of visiting this Caribbean paradise.
