Thinking about traveling to Aruba? Skip the hotel strip and get to know the locals. During our 3-week visit, we opted to stay in 3-different AirBnB's in the hopes of learning more about the country and the culture.
We got extremely lucky during our stay with Emerita Emerencia, a local who once lived in Canada. -Emerita was recognized as one of Canadas most accomplished black women -Was once a touring artist performing over 300 shows per year -Won the Aruba National Theater Award -Helped establish the Muchila Creative Foundation, a learning center for special needs students in Aruba & the first of its kind in the Caribbean -Runs a great AirBnB This video is a local perspective on life in Aruba.
