Practical information

Practical information refers to useful and relevant details that can assist you in planning and organizing various aspects of your trip. Here are some practical pieces of information that can be helpful:

Travel Documents

Ensure you have a valid passport with at least six months of validity remaining. Check if you require a visa to enter Aruba, depending on your nationality. It’s also a good idea to make copies of your important travel documents and keep them separate from the originals.


Everybody on the island is used in paying with two currency’s: the official currency of Aruba: Aruban florin (AWG) and the U.S. dollar (USD). Euro’s on the other hand are difficult to pay with. Not many places will accept this currency.


The official languages of Aruba are Dutch and Papiamento. However, Spanish and English are widely spoken and understood throughout the island.


Aruba has a tropical climate with consistently warm temperatures throughout the year. It’s generally sunny and dry, with cooling trade winds. Pack lightweight and breathable clothing, sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses to protect yourself from the sun.


Aruba has a public transportation system, including buses that cover most parts of the island. Taxis are also available, and car rentals are popular for those who prefer more flexibility. Remember to drive on the right side of the road in Aruba.

Aruba has good medical facilities, but it’s recommended to have travel insurance that covers medical expenses. Stay hydrated, use mosquito repellent, and take necessary precautions to prevent sunburn.

Electrical Outlets

Aruba uses North American-style electrical outlets with a voltage of 120V. If you’re traveling from a country with different plug types or voltage, like the Netherlands, you may need a plug adapter and voltage converter.
