From the colours of the sea to the colourful cocktails, the bright green iguanas and the pretty pastel buildings, nowhere in the world have I enjoyed sharing on Instagram, as much as I did Aruba.
This lovely Dutch Caribbean island just off the coast of Venezuela has many beautiful beaches of fine powdery white sand, and the clearest aquamarine water. The food really blew me away too, and you can discover Where and What to Eat and Drink in Aruba here.
Kick off your shoes and imagine your feet in the sand, as I take you on a quick tour of the Aruba via Instagram.
Rum cocktails are the order of the day in Aruba. This one is an Aruba Ariba, made with local rum, vodka, Coecoei (a red coloured Aruban liqueur made from the agave plant), creme de banana and fruit juices #aruba #discoveraruba #onehappyisland #caribbean #travelpics #eatlocal #photooftheday #travelgram #travelpic #travel #traveladdict #travelblogger #traveltheworld
Loved the wild rugged coastline of the north of Aruba, such a contrast from the soft white sands in the south. Here volcanic stones form a dramatic shoreline. When we visited the sea had been whipped up by the close passing of Hurricane Matthew. It’s a rare occurrence for hurricanes to be that far south in The Caribbean #discoveraruba #travel #travelblogger #traveladdict #traveltheworld #sea #storm #beach #ocean
The food in Aruba was superb! Amongst the best I’ve had anywhere, from seriously good seafood, such as these plump scallops with chunks of Caribbean rock lobster, to succulent steaks and so much more.

I never travel without insurance. If something unexpected goes wrong the costs implications are just too high to take the risk. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 130 countries. They're the perfect choice for long term travellers or single trip insurance.
