ABC islands map

Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao

After a few years of more green and wet tropical destinations, we’re looking forward to more dry and desert-like places. We also look forward to experiencing Dutch-influenced islands rather than English or Spanish.

Days 1-7: Aruba

Planned Activities

  • Going to the beach
  • Hiking at Arikok National Park
  • Snorkeling

Actual Activities

  •  

The Plan: Aruba has a reputation for great beaches, which we will be ready for mid-winter.

Actual Activities

The Plan: We like to snorkel from the beach and we heard Bonaire has lots of places where you can do this, so snorkeling is our focus here. However, we can’t miss a park with an interesting name like Washington-Slagbaai either!
