I went on a sight-seeing excursion in my Aruba ‘hood, looking for some of the best examples of indigenous foliage to show you. Mission accomplished!
[Sidenote: Aruba is unique because of the diversity of its landscape. The resort-heavy side of the island is a beach lover's paradise; however; if you travel to the other side of the country, you will see uninhabited and completely different sights. We have never ventured away from the resort section; one year, we walked to the Lighthouse and back...
...what a hot trek that was! - but our ambition always wanes within 7 hours of arrival...just be aware that there is a lot you can see, and many places to explore should you choose!
The Divi-Divi tree is a unique sight to North American eyes:
But my favourite tree is the palm tree. If I could have my own personal tree-as-symbol, it would be this one.
Let’s take another look!
Indulge me – one more!
OK, last one.
You’ll also find giant cacti!
The best place to see gorgeous foliage is next door to us at the Hyatt. BFF Debbie: if you ever travel to Aruba, you are only permitted to stay at the Hyatt. Every square inch of this luxurious property exudes your vibe and style. Here is proof:
For Little E!
For Baby C!
I would consider camping if I could do it on the grounds of the Hyatt. Just a wonderland of beauty and class. The upkeep is perfection.
The Radisson also has divine landscaping.
There you go – just a taste of the captivating natural beauty in Aruba!
