The road signs in Aruba are different from those in the US. Familiarize yourself with traffic rules and signs before driving.
Roads are very slick after a rain; drive cautiously.
For off-road adventure, consider renting a car with 4-wheel drive or a jeep.
If you are adventurous and want to explore all Aruba has to offer, it's a good idea to rent a four-wheel drive vehicle. The roads to many great sights are often rugged and not suitable for a car. Make sure that your spare tire is full of air before heading out into the rough terrain. 4-wheel drive vehicles are numerous but they are often hard to get because they are used for "Jeep Safari," popular sightseeing day trips.
If you want air conditioning and plan to stick to the main paved roads, there are many types of cars to choose from. You can rent your vehicle at the airport or you can call and ask to be picked up at your hotel.
Arubans drive on the right-hand side of the road.
The minimum age of 21-25 and the maximum of 65-70 vary slightly by company.
International driving license or any valid license held for at least two full years is required.

Windsurf roof racks upon availability and upon request.
