Set the mood
Sail out into the horizon in opulence with your special someone to witness mother nature create a stunning painting in the sky as the sun sets over the waters. The luxury catamaran will take you out towards the horizon for a leisurely two-hour sail during which you will be treated to complimentary food and drinks while enjoying some soul-stirring music. Some cruises even offer candlelit dinners. Others offer water activities. The sunset cruise is understandably one of the more popular activities among couples vacationing in Aruba because… well it’s obvious, isn’t it? Sailing across the ocean with the sunset in the background is pretty much the ending of all romance novels.
If you thought that was as romantic as it gets, you’re wrong. Another popular couple activity is a horseback riding tour that leads you up a mountain, through a desert and to a beautiful natural pool that you can cool off at after your ride. Now, how’s THAT for romantic?
After all that activity, it’s time to fuel up with some of the most incredible food the island has to offer. The cuisine is Aruba is highly influenced by all its surrounding countries as well as the various nationalities that have now made the island their home. Sample some delectable and incredibly fresh seafood at the beach, a five-course meal at a high-end restaurant or a juicy rib at the nearest steakhouse. When it comes to food in Aruba, you’ll be spoilt for choice!
