Aruba Streetcar System is The Only One in The Caribbean
The Aruba streetcar system is unlike no other. You can’t even compare it to anything else, because it’s the only one in the Caribbean region.
The electric tram in the downtown area was introduced to make Aruba’s shopping scene more attractive to tourist and locals.
The Aruba streetcar system is a success and it is causing a hype. Every one wants to ride the colorful trams once they see it.
There are a couple of trams in operation right now. A mix of a double deck trams and single deck.
If you want the best view during your ride hop on the double deck tram.
The Ease of Exploring The Downtown Area of Aruba
Before the trams you had to walk through the streets. Now you can reach you favorite store quick and easy.
The tram ride starts at the cruise port. Looping at the end of the main street back to the cruise port. And of course stopping at various places during the trip.
The best thing about it is – it’s free!

Are you going to ride the electrical train?
We have ridden on it a few times already and enjoy it.
Whenever I’m in Aruba I always take the tram to El Gaucho (one block from the final stop) and Coco Plum. But the schedule is always spotty. I’ve waited over 30 minutes for a tram to show up. Is there even a schedule at all? Please publish one. Thank you!
I will find a schedule and publish it.
