Under $100 / Caribbean

Aruba is a fun-filled Caribbean destination with beautiful beaches, incredible resorts and a lively nightlife. Staying here isn’t cheap, but that doesn’t mean you have to go overboard on your day-to-day expenses. Fill your day with these top activities and you’ll not only have a blast, but stick to your budget as well.

Dushi Bagels

If you’re craving an American breakfast, head over to Dushi Bagels at the Playa Linda Resort for some good old B.E.C. and other breakfast favorites. Plus, it’s fun to say — but don’t worry Dushi only means “sweetheart” in Papiamento.

Jolly Pirates Snorkeling: $45/ person

Aruba has some of the clearest waters and most beautiful snorkeling along its shores. Throw in some fun by going on a Jolly Pirates Snorkeling cruise on an authentic pirate ship. Sail through the waters with an open bar, music and rope swings to have a fun-filled day.


Bugaloe is my all-time favorite casual restaurant on the island. It’s low-key, relaxed Moroccan vibe pairs perfectly with its on top of the water pier setting. Sit on the waters edge in a low, padded chair and enjoy a Caribbean-inspired cocktail and a quick bite.

Riu Hotel Casino

After a day of saving money on your adventures, you might be feeling a little lucky. Try your luck at the Riu Hotel Casino, or one of the many other casinos around the island, to win some earnings for the rest of your trip.
