Aruba was in my #mustvisit list for a long time, but I couldn’t combine it before with something else!
I wanted to do the “harder” part of the trip and save this island for last! But everything went in other way round. I began my trip with this country, and I don’t regret!
Aruba met me with the sunny weather, but I had only one question – where are flamingos?! I don’t know, what anyone of you knows about this country, but I was sure that flamingos roam the streets there (according to the photos and videos seen on the Internet).
It turned out that they live on the separate island, which belongs to the Renaissance hotel and hotel’s guests can go there every day, but the rest have to buy a ticket!
This small island was looking like I imagined the whole Aruba, but only in scale-down version. Fishes, beautiful birds, little crabs, white sand and turquoise ocean!
15 minutes by boat and you are there. The island is divided into two areas: the flamingos’ beach and the iguanas’ beach! Of course, I went to the pink birds 🙂. There were not a lot flamingos, but they were friendly and were among the people all the time and didn’t afraid us.
I was swimming with them for all day long and only by the evening I went to iguanas! What about iguanas… iguanas are special, they like to sunbath, to eat fruits and to be stroked.
There are a few bars and restaurants on this island and it is a perfect for spending there day or maybe even two 🙂 The ticket price (if you are not a client of the hotel) includes lunch and cocktail, also if you want you can eat for additional charge.
My first emotions on this island were like: “How to take pictures of everything?”, and then “oh, well, it’s just photos, it is better to rest and enjoy”. I had time to do everything, so read and plan your trip to Aruba!
