Let’s be honest, every hour you spend in Aruba is bound to be a happy hour. With azure waves gently gliding over soft white sand and refreshing trade winds cooling you as you bask in boundless sunshine - could things possibly get any better? Yes! With a tropical drink or an ice cold beer at prices that won’t break your budget. Throw in some delicious, happy hour snacks and you’ve got yourself a guaranteed great time.

Here are our top 5 picks for the happiest happy hours on the island:
