Aruba celebrates Labour Day on 1 May. Aruba also celebrates King’s Day in late April, and the season between these two public holidays can be a time for many to relax and take a few days off work.

Overall, however, Labour Day is a rather low-key holiday in Aruba. There are many tourists who come to the island this time of year, and the beaches will be crowded, but there aren’t a huge number of public events to attend.
Some like to get out on the town for Labour Day Weekend, but others prefer to avoid the crowds. They may just work in the garden at home, take care of some long-delayed home improvement projects, or do a little spring cleaning.
