While the name of Aruba might connote white sand beaches, sunshine and tropical drinks with those little umbrellas in them, the truth is that Aruba is an amazingly diverse little island nation, and nevermore is that apparent than when visiting the Aruba Aloe Factory and Museum. Aloe is native to Aruba, and thanks to its medicinal and restorative properties, it has become one of the leading exports of the nation.
Learn about the history of aloe and Aruba while on a complimentary walking tour offered in English, Dutch, Spanish or in Papiamento – the native language of Aruba – every 15 minutes. You’ll explore the grounds, learn about aloe’s restorative properties and see the processing methods of this amazingly versatile plant.
The Aruba Aloe Factory and Museum is located in Hato at Pitastraat 115 off L.G. Smith Blvd.
