Aruba carnival that started more than sixty years ago, is a continuous fiesta that takes place during January and February.
This great fiesta attracts lot of tourists and local celebrators. Thousands of people, local and tourists pour into the cities Oranjestad the capital of Aruba and San Nicolas, hence the demand for accommodation is higher than usual, therefore it is advisable to check hotel prices and make reservations ahead of time.
The colorful costumes and rhythmic marches, the ceremonies and the crowning of the Queen of the carnival, the wonderful music playing everywhere, all these create an unforgettable experience.
