Spending New Years in Aruba has by far been one of the best decisions I have made. It was definitely my most expensive trip thus far going at such a high season peak but it was totally worth it. The hotel was one of the best locations I could think of. My friend and I stayed right next to Papimientos restaurant, the #1 restaurant on the Island at Costa Esmeralda Village. It was a great location due to the restaurant having a taxi stand right outside. Not only that but the hotel was only a 10-15 min walk away from the main strip. We stayed on Palm Beach which I would def recommend for anyone who wants amazing food and a never ending night life.
We stayed 4 nights and it went by sooo fast! The first night we got there we went out that night to the famous club everyone recommends. It started off really slow but by the end of the night you could barely walk around without bumping into someone. We left around 2am and was on our way home until we ran into South Beach. I fell in love with this club. It was a nonstop night of dancing in the rain and people having a great time listening to great music. Another great club that I had to go to before I left was the beach party. Luckily New Years fell on a Sunday and that’s the only time the club is popular. We had soooo much fun.
For fun activities I would def recommend ABC Tours and horseback riding. ABC Tours was the best tour guides I have ever had. They had Soo much knowledge on the history of Aruba as well as took us to places that wasn’t even a part of the tour like the California Lighthouse. It was mostly raining but the tour is rain, snow, or shine. But they make it worth it. Also, the horseback riding had the most gorgeous trail and the horses were well trained. The food was amazing and between the shrimp avocado bowl or the red snapper, you will most likely be eating the same meal everyday!
Aruba honestly is the best place to go for an AMAZING fireworks show and beautiful water. It was nonstop fireworks for the entire time we were there but not only that, New Years fireworks show was about a continuous 2 hours long. It was beautiful. Along the island you could see fireworks from every way. One of the best shows I have seen.
Here are a few pics from the trip! Enjoy!
Hope you enjoy!! ❤️
