Short, sunny month (at least on my blog) is almost over.
Tomorrow, we’re leaving the small island of Aruba and I will introduce you a completely different place. 🙂
Stay tuned. 🙂
Cacti and aloe are two plants that come to my mind when I think about the Aruban flora. 🙂
“One Happy Island” is a nickname of Aruba, isn’t it nice?
Many of lizards I’ve seen in Aruba were green. Sometimes, it was difficult to spot them, when they’re hiding in grass or leaves.
Aruba is a home of the half of the known lizard species. And it’s just a relatively small island!
Aruba is considered one of the safest destinations in the Caribbean.
Casibari Rock Formation, Aruba
Casibari Rock Formation is probably the most famous view point in Aruba.
The peace labyrinth (maze) is one of the interesting places in Aruba.
Aloe in Aruba
Aloe is probably the most famous plant in Aruba.
If you want to learn more about aloe, visit the Aruba Aloe Factory during your trip. 🙂
California Lighthouse in Aruba
If you like lighthouses, visit the California Lighthouse in Aruba.
It was constructed over 100 years ago. Currently it’s a tourist attraction located in a lovely place on Aruba.
Oranjestad is a capital of Aruba.
You’ll find here many of these colorful colonial Dutch houses.
Lizard on Aruba
Watch out! Lizards are everywhere on Aruba! 🙂
If you don’t annoy them, they shouldn’t be harmful. 😉
After spending a few minutes on Aruba, I found a perfect nick name for the island – “Island of Lizards”. 🙂
Crabs in Aruba
Don’t you agree that crabs can be very beautiful creatures? 🙂
Each time, when I’m at the coast, I try to catch the sunset.
Of course, sunsets can be spectacular everywhere, just “water” helps to see it better. 😉
Waters around Aruba are great place for snorkeling, scuba diving or simply taking a semi-submarine with a glass bottom. You’ll find nice corals, colorful fish and the wreck of the WWII German Ship, the Antilla.
Aruba’s waters offer lots of activities like swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, fishing, etc.
The view like in today’s picture, you can expect to see everyday in Aruba.
Not the worst one… 😉
Sandy beaches are one of the attractions of Aruba. They are very nice, but I liked more all sea shells or creatures I found there. 🙂
Why to go to Aruba?
The simple answer is to relax. 🙂
There are two official languages in Aruba, i.e., Dutch and Papiamento.
Papiamento is a mixture of a few languages, mostly Portuguese, Spanish and Dutch.
Fortunately, the majority of Arubans can speak also English and Spanish. 🙂
