What to Do During Your Honeymoon in Aruba
If you're off to Aruba for your honeymoon, don't think you have to spend all your time at the beach. There are plenty of other wonders to discover. Here are some top choices:
A Day with the Flamingos
Renaissance Island is a private island that only accepts a limited number of guests. Far away from the more crowded beaches, it's the perfect spot to spend a romantic day with the beautiful flamingos the island is famous for.
Enjoy a Snorkeling Cruise
Aruba boasts a good number of reef beaches that make for great snorkeling. If you want to discover several great snorkeling spots in one go, take a snorkeling cruise. The ship will carry you around the island, stopping at key snorkeling spots where you can spot tropical fish, manta rays, and sea turtles. You can also go scuba diving and explore the largest WWII shipwreck in the Caribbean, the S.S. Antilla.
Romantic Horseback Riding
Get up early and enjoy a romantic horseback ride to the island's natural pools. Nestled north of Aruba, these beautiful pools are set amidst a fantastic volcanic landscape with astonishing rock formations. Dipping in and out of the pools to cool off before heading back home on horseback makes for a memorable romantic excursion.
