Tips / Destination

Traveling with a pet internationally isn’t exactly easy, but Aruba recently drew attention to its dog-friendly offerings. Aruba is a destination that not only allows you to bring your dog but welcomes them with open arms,” said Ronella Croes, CEO, Aruba Tourism Authority, recently.


Aruba’s pet entry requirements are relatively straightforward if you’re traveling directly into the country from the United States. Your pet simply must have resided in the United States for at least six months, be microchipped, have a valid rabies vaccination and have a valid and endowed USDA health certificate. Otherwise, you just need to fill out the pet entry application form online.


Once you and your pet are happily in Aruba, you’ll find a variety of pet-friendly hotels and resorts on the island, including Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort Aruba, Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort, Courtyard by Marriott Aruba Resort, Hyatt Place Aruba Airport, Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort & Casino and The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba.


Many of the above properties offer special pet-geared amenities and savings. For example, The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba, provides mini pet cabanas and gourmet pet food room service menus. Additionally, through Nov. 6, Courtyard by Marriott Aruba Resort offers travelers with pets 15 percent off their total stay when they stay four or more nights with the Have Dog, Will Travel promotion.
