ONE HAPPY ISLAND
Much like the people who call Aruba home, the island’s varied geography provides visitors with a host of natural attractions to see and explore like white-sand beaches, mountainous peeks and a desert-like interior. After a healthy dose of Aruba’s culture, head toward the western shore. It’s a posh destination that has all the gambling and excitement of big city life, but you’ll still have the beach a few steps away.
HIGH ROLLERS PARADISE
Many of its casinos were modeled after some of Vegas’ most upscale casinos. But while most gamblers are from the US, there’s no need to dress up Vegas-style. The barefoot elegance of Aruba’s casinos attracts high rollers and non-gamblers alike, so you can have a brush with Lady Luck anytime!
