Destination guide

Savaneta delivers sun, sea, sand and more

Aruba promises sun, sea and sand and it delivers all 3 in droves. However, the Caribbean island offers more than this. Dutch colonial architecture, fascinating museums and colorful festivities await in the nearby capital Oranjestad. When you stay in a Savaneta vacation rental, grab yourself a rental car and you'll be within easy reach of every inch of this Caribbean hotspot. To top all that, the hurricane belt doesn't reach this far south, so it's open for business all year round. Looking for a family vacation? You've just found it in Aruba.

Things to do

Savaneta is a short drive from colorful Oranjestad

Every corner of Aruba and all of its attractions are easily reached from your Savaneta vacation rental. Most are centered around the capital Oranjestad, whose streets are flanked by gorgeous Dutch colonial architecture. While you're in town, you shouldn't miss a visit to the National Archeological Museum, which features artifacts that date back 1000s of years. If you've brought the young ones, be sure to bring them to the Aruba Ostrich Farm, to see the dozens of flightless birds. Every Tuesday, the beautiful Fort Zoutman hosts the weekly Bon Bini, a colorful event filled with dance and music.

Activities

Explore Savaneta by yacht or paddleboard

If you're a first-timer in Aruba, the best introduction to the Caribbean island is on a private sailing cruise along its coast. If that feels a little out of reach, you can always do it under your own steam on a paddleboard. New to water sports? There's no shortage of schools where expert trainers can get you flying across the water on kite or wind surfs in no time. It would be criminal to spend a vacation in Aruba without dropping down below the surrounding sea, spotting the creatures of the deep and remnants of a WWII German freighter that sank here more than half a century ago.

Weather

Lie on sun-soaked shores year-round in Savaneta

You don't have to worry about hurricanes on this tiny island, which lies just off the mainland of Venezuela, making it one of the only spots in the Caribbean which can be visited year-round. Most vacationers jet in over winter, when the temperatures back home plummet. The peak season reaches its pinnacle during the festive season, so nab a Savaneta vacation rental quickly if you plan to visit over Christmas and New Year. That said, the beaches are always drenched in sunshine and if you fly in over late spring, you'll likely have much of the beach all to yourself.

Natural features

Savaneta crawls with wildlife

If you want a Caribbean vacation that isn't just about the beach, Aruba's got you covered. Just north of your Savaneta vacation rental, you'll find Arikok, a large swath of national park whose residents include Aruban cat eye snakes, parakeets and whiptail lizards. The best way to experience the unique landscape of lava and limestone formations is on horseback, or foot, and a park ranger is invaluable in helping to spot some of the more elusive critters. Alternatively, if you hop aboard one of the daily scuba diving charters, you'll be treated to an underwater world of colorful exotic marine life.
