Aruba offers sunshine, amazing ocean views, and historical sites you can't miss, but some attractions are best experienced after the sun goes down. Though it might be hard to decide between a funky spot where locals flock or a hidden spot with fine spirits, you won't run out of things to do in the evening, particularly if you select a resort with places on-site for guests to drink and mingle.
