Cafe “Chaos” in Oranjestad will delight visitors with low prices for good drinks, and on Saturdays, there is live music too.

Those who prefer music more heavily are recommended to drink craft beer in the “Rock 'N' Rock” bar, where rock music of different times are always played, from the hits of the sixties to the most modern compositions. In the small club “U-Wanna Beer”, you can try interesting Aruban beer “Balashi”, which the locals are very proud of.

The Caribbean Sea offers people excellent opportunities for diving and snorkeling. The shores of Aruba are great for scuba diving, but it is best to go to popular historical sites such as sunken ships. They include the German “SS Antilla”, which went down more than seventy years ago, laying off the coast of Palm Eagle Beach, and the British “SS Pedernales”, located at the bottom near Noord. When compared to these remains of old ships, the sunken “Jane Sea” is still quite young – it was submerged only thirty years ago. These places are very popular among divers, because they give you the opportunity to see real ships, connect with their history, and finally, just swim around the wreckage, enjoying the view of the colorful sea inhabitants scurrying among the remains of what once proudly right over the waves.
Hotel Riu Palace In Santa Cruz, there is the rancho “Daimari”, where friendly dogs and horses live. Horse riding allows guests to explore the countryside and admire the landscape, as well as visit the natural swimming pool located nearby.

Proficient guides will make sure the horse riding is safe and memorable, and the hilly terrain is ideal for a fast ride on a two-wheeled driven horse. Visitors to Oranjestad are advised to visit the rancho “La Ponderosa” to participate in horseback riding along beautiful beaches which impresses with the scale of its desert terrain.

Nothing gives a feeling of freedom like flying above the ground and water. Fans of paragliding ought to visit Palm Eagle Beach, where there are several companies whose list of services includes ensuring safe paragliding and riding on a tugboat. For those who prefer quiet activities on solid ground, it is recommended you play golf. Oranjestad has a Golf Club called “The Links” at Divi with a small convenient course surrounded by palm trees. “Tierra del Sol Golf course” is located in Noord. The field here is quite large, and it opens up a wonderful view of the surrounding area and the sea. “Aruba Golf Club” in San Nicolas, is more suitable for professionals, as the place is rather windy. Whichever golf club tourists choose to visit, they should keep it in mind that the hot and aggressive sun of Aruba is everywhere. This means that morning is the most suitable time for a comfortable game.
Tourists in Noord that prefer extreme sports, have the opportunity to go skydiving and ride all-terrain vehicles. In Oranjestad, you can go flyboarding – a pleasure that not every country is ready to offer to tourists. However, in the capital of Aruba, a breathtaking magical flight on a board, which is repelled from the surface of the water by means of air or water flows, is quite real. Such an experience simply cannot be forgotten for a lifetime, and the instructors at “Aruba Flyboard” make every effort to ensure the event is comfortable, fun and safe.
