5 Helpful Tips for Your First Trip to Aruba

Are you planning a trip to Aruba? Fun in the sun and much need time is waiting for you.

Before you start making plans to go there, I want to share some helpful tips to ensure that you have the best time on your trip to Aruba! This helpful information will better prepare you for your upcoming vacation.

Helpful Tip #1: WiFi & Communicating Back Home

I understand that you will be traveling a great distance from home, and you want to let your family and friends know that you have arrived or update them about the fun you are having on your trip. WiFi can found in most resorts and public areas, so you can still check your email, iMessages, and social media. And if you would like to call back to the U.S., all you have to do is dial 001, then your area code and phone number. That’s it. So not a thing to worry about being able to communicate with everyone back home as you can stay in touch. You can also pay for an international package with your cellphone carrier as well to include calls and texts back home.

Helpful Tip #2: Water Safety

The water supply in Aruba is safe for you to drink. The water is pure, clean, and meets the high standards of the World Health Organization. It is distilled in a saltwater desalination plant. Feel free to refill your reusable water bottle with tap water, and you will be good to go.

Helpful Tip #3: Family-Friendly Vacation Spot

Aruba is a family-friendly vacation destination. There are plenty of activities for the entire family to enjoy. Besides spending time at the beach, there are countless activities options available. No one should state that they are bored on this trip! They even have a waterpark on DePalm Island that the entire family can enjoy. Make sure to check it out.

Helpful Tip #4: Official Languages

Wondering what language the natives speak in Aruba? Wonder no more because the official language of the island is Dutch and Papiamento. However, most natives are multi-lingual and can communicate in English and Spanish. You shouldn’t have any issues talking with others on the island.

Helpful Tip #5: Medical Emergencies

Medical situations can happen at anytime but should you have the need to contact someone for help I suggest you then please contact the front desk of your hotel. The front desk of your resort will be able to contact the proper medical officals to assist you. Aruba has a well-equipped hospital, Dr. Horacio Oduber Hospital, located close to Eagle Beach.
