    Over 50 Murals Waiting to be Discovered by You
    This was my second time to see the murals in San Nicolas. The first time was in 2017, shortly after the art festival that put many of them up. Now it's 2023, and many more murals have been added both in and out of the festival, which ran again before being derailed by COVID. There are now over 50 murals. The styles range from trompe l'oeil to surreal to indigeno-techno. It's very easy to get to San Nicolas from Oranjestad: the main bus station in Oranjestad is very close to the cruise ship terminal. Right now it costs US $5 for a round trip card, and there is a bus that makes some stops along the way but takes you to the main bus station in San Nicolas. At the bus station in San Nicolas is a very clean restroom and the station is open until 4pm. Across from the station is the San Nicolas Information Center, and they can give you a map of the murals as well as other info. The map they gave us today has 45 murals marked, but there are actually more of them to discover as you go! Plus there are also interesting public sculptures. 90% of the murals can be seen in a three block by three block area, with the other 10% just 2-3 blocks further over. Put on your sunscreen and wander up and down for an hour or two, grab a beer at the famous Charlie's Bar, and catch the bus back to Oranjestad.

    Worth a stop
    Lots of amazing street art in a few blocks. Easy to walk around and a couple restaurants and smoothie places nearby. We spent about 45-60 minutes touring and think we saw most, if not all, of the murals. Definitely think it's worth the stop, especially on your way to/from baby Beach. Just note, there are no public restrooms in the area so plan to stop beforehand if necessary.

    You have to visit this area and the beautiful murals to get a real taste of Aruba
    Beautiful Area to Visit - a must-see if you're in Aruba. We rented a car and went exploring and saw the beautiful murals in San Nicolas and went on to Baby Beach. The artist renderings are OUTSTANDING - if you have a chance, please visit.

    Go see the murals
    This walking tour of the San Nicolas street murals is very interesting and gets you into an area that tourists are much less likely to see. The tour is led by an artist who tells you the story of the annual Art Fair and the history of each artist who painted the walls as well as how the artist sees them as representing Aruba. Well worth a couple of hours of your trip time.

    Take this tour first! Tito is a master storyteller with a passion for his home, family and community history. The street art is only the beginning of a walk through the Arubian culture. He is 100% committed to the community and 100% vested in sustaining the culture with at least eight active projects. Admirable! Great art, too!

    Check out this tour first! His love of home, family, and community history makes Tito an exceptional tour guide. The street art is only the beginning of a journey of a community with beautiful artwork and personality. There is a lot of wonderful art on the walls, especially some amazing three-dimensional art.

    Vibrant Art
    There are some 50 street murals within a few blocks in San Nicolas. They are amazing! Local artists and those from other countries painted these murals. The ways the artists expressed their feelings and ideas were creative and vibrant. We visited San Nicolas on Aruba Anthem and Flag Day, on the way back from Baby Beach to Palm Eagle Beach. The street murals in San Nicolas reminds me of the lively tropical music that local residents played on Baby Beach to celebrate their holiday.

This isn’t the obvious choice on all of the trip guides of the top things to do in Aruba, but was honestly one of the more memorable things we did in Aruba (along with lunch and visit to Museum of the Industry). The art work is amazing and continues to grow by many each year. What a wonderful way to take a town struggling from the closure of the refineries and inject art and culture to promote the culture and history of the country and city. Stop by the information center and visit with Debbie who is incredibly friendly and will guide you on what to see and provide a map of the art. Stop by and support this town on the way to Baby Beach.
