All-Night Fun in Aruba
All-Night Fun in Aruba by Justin Burch
As Aruba is one of the most vibrant, action-packed islands in the Caribbean, it is no surprise that Aruba is also one of the few islands where visitors can truly have fun around the clock. Aruba's capital city – Oranjestad – is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the Caribbean and home to numerous restaurants, clubs, theatres and even casinos. As a result, tourists in Aruba can find a number of dining and entertainment options to keep the excitement going from sunset to sunrise.
The numerous restaurants and cafes of Oranjestad provide the best way to start a night in Aruba. Whether you are looking for a romantic dinner or a meal accompanied by live music, there are plenty of great options throughout the city. As Aruba attracts an array of international tourists, the restaurants of Oranjestad feature a wide variety of exotic cuisine. However, many of Aruba's favorite eateries boast a uniquely Caribbean flavor, including menus created with fresh seafood as the focus. Many of Oranjestad's restaurants also feature outdoor dining to allow visitors an opportunity to enjoy the island's scenery and perfect evening weather.
After dinner, many visitors to Aruba make their way to one of the exciting live shows that are produced throughout the year. Aruba's most popular show is the top-rated Let's Go Latin at Renaissance's Crystal Theater. The over-the-top musical takes the stage every Monday through Saturday at 9 PM. In addition to Let's Go Latin, tourists can also visit numerous other stage shows throughout Oranjestad, including several influenced by the island's rich cultural history.
When the shows let out, the next stop for the adventurous tourist should be one of Aruba's bars or clubs. Regardless of your nightlife tastes, Aruba will have a hotspot that caters to your desires. Older travelers often visit Aruba's classy cigar bars and jazz clubs, where top-shelf drinks can be enjoyed while soaking up Caribbean-tinged tunes. Younger travelers will want to check out some of Aruba's boisterous night clubs for late-night dancing and locally-inspired cocktails. While some of the clubs in Aruba cater to American and European tourists with popular music and well-known drink options, there are plenty of friendly bars and dance halls that revel in the Caribbean setting and allow visitors to enjoy an exotic night on the town.
After the bars and clubs close in the wee hours, those hoping to keep the night alive can head over to the Crystal Casino, Aruba's only 24-hour casino. Located only steps from the beach at the Renaissance Aruba Resort in Oranjestad, the Crystal Casino offers all the best table games and video machines found in the casinos of Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Even if you don't want to put your money on the line, the Crystal Casino can be a great place to mingle with fellow travelers or simply observe some late-night excitement.
As sunrise approaches, the committed night owls begin making their way to the cafes that line the beaches of Oranjestad. Not only can you watch the sunrise over the city, but you can enjoy breakfast or coffee right on the beach. If you are waking early, these cafes and coffee shops are also a great place to plan your day in Aruba or catch up on the news.
Whether you are in search of a non-stop party or simply want to enjoy the cultured pleasures of Aruba's nightlife, this exciting island always has the perfect adventure in store. Though there is so much to see and do during the daylight hours in Aruba, a trip to some of Oranjestad's late-night hotspots will allow you to experience another side of this vibrant Caribbean destination.
