The last stop on the cruise was Aruba, and we were told this is the best of all. We decided to spring for a tour this time, and got on a bus that took us around the north end of the island and then dropped us on a beach for a couple hours. We took some of the beach time to also visit a bird sanctuary and walk around the area.
Aruba is a Dutch island like the others, but it seemed even dryer and there was cactus everywhere. I suppose this is good for tourism because your day at the beach will rarely be rained out. I wasn’t surprised to read that 75% of the business in Aruba is tourism. There were tour buses everywhere, a happy party atmosphere, and tons of huge resorts. It felt almost like Las Vegas with a beach and not as much glitter.
