Climb to the Moon in Aruba’s National Park

Updated: Nov 28, 2018



The nightlife around the 5 star hotels of Aruba is sure to be thriving on your next all inclusive travel experience there, & with little else to worry about besides what you'll be doing throughout the day, you have the opportunity to take it all in. However, there's another activity that's just as exhilarating you could be doing at night.

One of the most famous features of the tropical island is the picture-perfect sunsets that line its western coast. While you'll find many other tourists filling the beaches & any other spot with a good view, you can take advantage of the time you have to spend a whole day preparing for the event.

On top of Aruba Arakok National Park makes up more than one-fifth of Aruba's land area, providing anyone who explores the nature inside it with a bastion of freedom away from the other tourists on the island. If you're looking to see as much of the country as possible, the tallest point on the entire island of Aruba is the perfect way to take it all in at once, according to Aruba.com.

The peak of Mount Jamanota rests at 620 feet above sea level, giving you a remarkable view all around you, stated USA Today. With 29 miles of trails to navigate, you could spend all day in the park, Aruba.com stated.

If you want to see the sunset in all its beauty & stand beneath the starlit sky, you might want to consider Arakok Park as the location to host your venture. You should begin your excursion early in the day if you hope to see everything contained in the park before the sun starts setting so you can find the perfect position to watch the show on the slopes of Mount Jamanota.

A moonlight hike If possible, try to synchronize your visit to Aruba with the full moon so you can go on a Jamanota Full Moon hike to see both the magnificent sunset as well as the lunar spectacle that rises in its wake from the most ideal spot on the island.

From high on the mountain you'll be perfectly poised to see your tropical destination bathing in the moonlight after a long day of exploring its natural recesses, USA Today added. If you don't feel comfortable in your ability to navigate the terrain in the park or you just want to learn as much as you can about the area, you can arrange an expert guide to escort you & your party to the summit.

Be sure to bring binoculars & any other tools you might desire to better enhance your hike.
