Vacation tips for your stay on Aruba in Villa San Miguel

travel tip: beachEnjoy your vacation in Villa San Miguel and Aruba:

In May 2011 the island was named 2nd best travel destination of the entire Caribbean of 25 islands, where Curacao scored a 25th place! The population is above all very friendly. The crime rate is relatively low, there is little political unrest and the island isn’t affected much by hurricanes!

And those beaches, glorious white beaches, draped with palm trees, lovely clear water in the typical Caribbean blue color, free access to all beaches, no parking fees, what a luxury, what freedom!


travel tip: divingAnd what about snorkeling and (scuba)diving!

All over the island there are perfect restaurants for all tastes; Dutch, Aruban, American etc. etc. Situated at romantic places or even on the beach, or in the very lively American tourist centers, the port in Oranjestad or just downtown.

Compared to all of this the location of San Miguel Villa is ideal: walking distance from Eagle Beach, one of the most beautiful and tranquil white beaches, but also just half a mile of a vibrant American tourist area, the so-called High Rise, which includes Mambo Beach. Oranjestad, with all its colorful shops, casinos and moored cruise ships  is just 10 minutes by car. The airport is 15 minutes by car.

You need groceries? The largest supermarket in Aruba, which includes all known Dutch products, is 300 meters from your vacation villa.



travel tip: arubaWe have experienced that a car on Aruba a recommended means of transport. Although there are plenty of buses, a bus stop is 50 meters from the villa, the buses are not on time and have little comfort.

All major car rental companies are present on Aruba, also at the airport. Reservations are highly recommended. Our Management and Rental Office can also arrange this for you. If you wish this, then please ask for the possibilities when booking.




travel tip: fly


Several airlines fly from North America to Aruba, like United AirlinesUS Airways, Air Canada & Delta Air Lines.
