With so many bars to choose from on One Happy Island, the Aruba Tourism Organisation must be happy that this company brings tourists to places most tourists would never visit. The colourful Kukoo Kunuku bus is the island’s first and still the best version of a booze bus. As soon as everyone is picked up from their hotels, the vehicle heads to the northernmost point of the island. The beginning of this sundown to midnight tour may sound a bit dull, but that changes quickly. The party leader of this ‘crazy night out’ will explain the rules of the evening while you sip a glass of sparkling wine on a beach at sunset. The most important thing to remember is that the first drink at each bar is included in the price. Don't be discouraged if your leader looks like he partied with Jimmy Buffet back in the day as these experienced characters know how to throw a wild party. After a good meal in a local restaurant, the rest of the night is filled with bar hopping, beer drinking and lots of shots. In between bars the loud music puts the bus's sound system to the test until midnight. A handful of local watering holes and countless Balashi brews later things started to get a littles fuzzy, but we vaguely remember some of the group doing a striptease number on the bar to the Village People’s timeless YMCA. And was that local reincarnation of Michael Jackson just a dream? Animal Lovers and Family Friendly tours are also provided by the same company, but without the alcoholic beverages.
If you like American jokes, join this tour. Otherwise go by yourself!
