Oranjestad serves as Aruba’s capital and is the largest city on the island. Located on the southwestern coast, this seaside destination offers urban sophistication to match any cosmopolitan city. You’ll find plenty of glitzy restaurants, nightclubs, and casinos here, as well as luxury malls, duty-free shops, museums, and art galleries. A stroll through the city reveals Aruba’s crossroad of cultures as Dutch colonial-style buildings line the streets in bright Caribbean colors while a fluttering of languages ranging from Papiamento to Spanish mingle around every corner. The capital city’s historical sites, butterfly farm, marina and bustling waterfront are all loaded with interesting sights begging for further exploration. Oranjestad is home to Aruba’s only international airport.
