Deep History

Visiting Savaneta's a must if you're at all interested in Aruban history. This quiet village on the southeastern coast ranks as the island's oldest existing settlement, which the Dutch made the capital back in the 1810s.

Attractions include Aruba's most historic house--a 150-year-old mud hut (cas de torto)--as well as the timeless bustle of the fisherfolk who call Savaneta home. The neighborhood also includes a couple of uncrowded little beaches plus a decent spread of restaurants and bars, though on the whole this is a (refreshingly) slower-paced corner of Aruba.
