Sista's Guide to Packing for Aruba: Celebrate Your Style and Embrace the Aruban Sun

Updated: Feb 19

When it comes to packing for a tropical paradise like Aruba, it's all about balancing style, comfort, and practicality. Whether you're a first-time island explorer or a seasoned traveler, this guide, designed with the fashionable and empowered Black woman in mind, will help you pack just what you need to make the most of your Aruban getaway.

Aruba's allure is in its crystal-clear waters and stunning sunsets. Pack at least two swimsuits to flaunt your style, whether you're sunbathing on Eagle Beach or taking a dip in Baby Beach's tranquil waters. Don't forget a chic cover-up and a wide-brimmed sun hat to provide stylish shade.

Embrace the island vibes with sundresses and short sets celebrating your unique style. These pieces are perfect for our Sundresses & Short Sets Cocktail Reception, where you'll mix and mingle with like-minded sisters, forming connections that go beyond the trip.

Bring a few sophisticated outfits for our Shades of Blue Farewell Dinner and other evening events. Think flowing maxi dresses or elegant jumpsuits in hues of blue to match the tranquil Aruban night sky.

Don't forget to pack a pair of comfortable shoes for exploring Aruba's natural wonders, like the Arikok National Park or the California Lighthouse. A pair of breathable hiking shoes or sturdy sandals should do the trick.

Aruba's tropical climate calls for high SPF sunscreen to protect your beautiful melanin-rich skin from the sun's rays. A moisturizing after-sun lotion will also keep your skin hydrated after a day at the beach. Don't forget travel-sized toiletries and your favorite cosmetics for those glamorous island nights.

Remember to bring along your passport, travel documents, and any necessary medication. A travel adapter might also be useful, as Aruba uses Type F power plugs.

Finishing Touches

Lastly, leave a little room in your luggage for souvenirs and the exclusive Deb's Travel Club Swag Bag you'll receive.

Packing for Aruba should be as exciting as the trip itself! It's an opportunity to express yourself, celebrate your identity, and prepare for the unforgettable experiences that await. By following this guide, you'll be well-prepared to enter the Aruban sun, embodying the essence of an empowered, globe-trotting sisterhood. Happy packing, queens!
