Dive to a Shipwreck. Once a trade vessel that transported goods between Germany and Aruba, the SS Antilla, now sits off the coast of Aruba. Plan a diving excursion to the shipwreck, the largest in the Caribbean, and spot the coral formations, lobsters and anemones that cover the site.
Explore Spectacular Scenery. About one-fifth of the island is designated national park lands; Arikok National Park, on the craggy easy coast of Aruba is the most majestic. Along with stunning coastal views, you’ll find a variety of natural wonders to explore, in addition to the iconic Alto Vista Chapel and the California Lighthouse.
Beach Picnic Basket. Whether at the beach or while exploring the island, enjoy a beach picnic lunch infused with your picnic favorites including a cheese and charcuterie board, healthy wraps, fruit and champagne in a Ritz-Carlton picnic basket.
Relax With a Native Remedy. Aloe is grown year-round on the island. Take advantage of its healing properties by booking a ‘Misterio di Aloe’ body treatment at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Aruba. The restorative treatment will renew your skin for another day of exploring in the sun.
Taste Traditional Cuisine. Aruban cuisine is a mix of Spanish, Dutch and Caribbean influences, which you can experience firsthand at the Old Cunucu House. Try traditional conch stews with garlic, lobster tail with traditional cream sauces, and keshi yena, a local gouda and chicken dish baked with onions, olives and cashews.
