Dutch Church Service
If you're in Aruba on a Sunday, it's worth the time to attend services at the Dutch Protestant Church (The Protestant Church Community of Aruba). The church itself was built in 1822, but the cultural aspect is that services are conducted (mainly) in Dutch, with an English translation insert in the program. Just keep in mind that the church has no air conditioning.
The museum of foreign currency.
Most visitors miss the museums the city has to offer. Pay a visit to the Museum of foreign currency. In which you would find currencies from every country in the World since the beginning of mankind.
The Museum of foreign currency is located next to the University of Aruba near the St. Francis Roman Catholic Church of Oranjestad.
I honestly don't know what the big deal is...
"I guess it must be me"
Ok, so here is the deal with my trip to Aruba. My husband and I are travel-addicts so when we started looking for a place for our honeymoon we did MUCH research on where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. We decided on Aruba for a week and Mexico for the other. I spent an entire day reading reviews for the different hotels and settled on the Divi All Inclusive. I went to my travel agent and she told us that she had never been there but hadn't heard anything bad about it so we booked it.
I guess we just were expecting too much because from the moment that our plane entered the Aruban airspace until it left 6 days later our vacation was very bland. I know many people that have been to Aruba and most of them love the place and go back every year. My husband and I are not one of those people. This place did nothing for us even when we got out of the resort and went into town.
