Broaden your horizon and start traveling today. If you haven’t been to Aruba then it is time you book cheap flights to Oranjestad and experience the diverse beauty of the Caribbean islands.
Oranjestad is Aruba’s largest and capital city. The city literally means “Orangetown” in Dutch. This offers a unique and diverse mix of cultures as seen in the many buildings in the area. Old buildings exhibit characteristic Dutch colonial architecture. These have been restored and are now among the many beautiful landmarks which often serve as tourist destinations. One of these buildings is the Civil Registry located in Wilhelminastraat with its lime colored facade.
The beaches are definitely the main attractions of the area. However, if you want to do other activities you can visit the Wilhelmina Park which is a small waterfront park. Here you will find the statue of Queen Wilhelmina- a Dutch royalty. Take a leisurely walk along this peaceful park while enjoying the ocean view. You can also visit several beautiful churches including the Protestant Church and Saint Franciscus church which is located on the hilly portion of the city. Driving up the hill will allow you to get a good view of the ocean. A visit to the Museo Arubano will allow you to understand better the culture and history of this island nation. The museum is located on Fort Zoutman which is an 18th century building and one of the oldest in Aruba. You can also visit the Beth Israel Synagogue and adore its beautiful and attractive building. If you are feeling lucky then head to Alhambra Casino and Seaport Casino and spend the night playing poker or just enjoy your favorite drinks. Other places you can visit include the Cultural Center and Lourdes Grotto among others.
Save some money by booking cheap flights to Oranjestad during off-season. This is usually between the months of September and November. Don’t worry the sunshines all year round in the island. The hotels, tours and activities are usually cheaper during these months.
There are many hotels in Oranjestad ranging from 1 start to 5 star accommodations. Hotels are generally expensive anywhere in the island since this is among the most expensive locations in the Caribbean. Booking in “all inclusive” hotels will help you plan a more accurate budget. Some of the highly rated hotels and resorts include the Tamarijn Aruba, Divi Aruba, Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort, Renaissance Aruba Resort and Casino, and Tropical Aruba Resort and Casino among others. It is time you experience diverse culture, warm weather and exquisitely beautiful beaches when you book cheap flights to Oranjestad.
