On Aruba you can hike a surreal arid outback and participate in every conceivable water sport, play tennis or golf, and horseback ride along the sea. But the big sport of note these days is beach tennis. Aruba has become the beach tennis capital of the Caribbean, and Palm and Eagle Beaches host several tournaments, including one big annual international competition. As for water sports, the coolest new thing to do on Aruba is the thrilling jet-pack-over-water ride called Jetlev. They also offer hoverboard—an air-propelled skateboard over the waves—and jet blades, which are like ski boots on a board that jet-blast you into the air. Parasailing, banana boats, kayaking, paddleboarding, even yoga on paddleboard … You name it, Aruba has it. And this island has some of the world’s best conditions for windsurfing and kiteboarding. In fact, it has produced world champions.
Whether you just want to try diving once, you want to become a qualified diver or you already are a certified diver and you just want to continue diving… Aruba is a great place for all of that and Happy Divers Aruba can offer you the personal attention and quality to make your dive experience in Aruba a great one.

There are many ways to explore Aruba and one of them is on a horse. You don’t need to be an experienced rider to join a horseback riding tour; all ranches have well trained horses and friendly and knowledgeable tour guides. Most ranches allow children of 6 years and older to ride their own horse. Children under 6 years can join their parents on the horse. You can enjoy Aruba’s nature during a trip through National Park Arikok, the Sand Dunes, Natural Pool, Natural Bridge, but you can also choose for a relaxing ride along Aruba’s coastline.
Aruba has a kid-loving culture, and its slogan “One Happy Island” extends to young visitors as well. The island is a reasonably short flight away from most of the Eastern Seaboard (about three to six hours), and there are familiar sights such as fast-food places that help make kids feel more comfortable. Though the island may not offer all of the distractions of a theme park holiday, it has more than enough to keep most kids occupied during a family vacation.Most of Aruba’s high-rise resorts offer kids’ programs and are generally found along Palm Beach. The Hyatt Regency Aruba Beach Resort offers an extensive kids’ program and has many family-fun activities such as horseback riding, various water sports, and tennis. Snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, and sailing are some of the things that keep families coming back to Aruba year after year. Most hotels and condos offer inexpensive equipment rentals for a day in the water. Seasoned junior snorkelers will find the viewing pretty dull off the major beaches, so organized tours such as those offered by De Palm Tours and Red Sail Sports, which explore more remote coves, may provide more of a satisfying underwater experience. De Palm Island offers a variety of water activities for kids, including snorkeling and a water park that makes for a great day in the sun.
