Alhambra Casino Aruba

Aruba Realty's Review

This small but friendly casino is a great place to go for an evening out and there are plenty of slot machines and $5 tables for those who are not big gamblers. The casual atmosphere is complimented by the Spanish stye dcor that surrounds you while you are playing your choice of games. The casino has bingo every Saturday, Monday and Thursday at 1pm and you will see novelty touch screen machines providing a variety of games. The Alhambra Advantage Card gives clients a point for each dollar spent so even if you lose you can still take prizes home with you!

This family friendly festival is held most Thursdays from 6pm to 10pm on San Nicholas' Main Street, it transforms the area into a party scene with Aruban music, street food, culture and booths selling locally made handicrafts.

Bon Bini Festival Aruba

Aruba Realty's Review

This event is year round and takes place every Tuesday from 6.30 to 8.30, Bon Bini means Welcome in Papiamento. The festival is held at Ft. Zoutman in Oranjestad in the inner courtyard and is an explosion of colorful costumes, dancing, local arts, food and drink!

Charlies Bar Aruba

Aruba Realty's Review

This popular bar has been something of an institution in Aruba since 1941, the bar is a little far away from most hotels, but definitely worth the trip. This family run business prides itself on providing all visitors with good food and a welcoming atmosphere that keeps people returning year after year. It is often said that If you haven't been to Charlies you dont know Aruba!

Kukoo Kunuku

Kukoo Kunuku Aruba

Aruba Realty's Review

For a night you will never forget, hop aboard the Kukoo Kunuku bus, this party starts as soon as you are onboard and will transport you to all the best nightspots around. First stop is a special location to enjoy a champagne toast and then onto a local restaurant to enjoy a meal under the stars. The guides are friendly and know how to get everyone into the party mood so that you can party the night away Aruban style!
