Aruba Aloe Museum, Factory, and Store
The aloe plant is so important to this tiny island that its image is emblazoned on the nation’s crest. It is said that the combination of the hot Caribbean sun and the arid desert enhance the healing and moisturizing properties of aloe. First domesticated on Aruba in 1840, the crop once extended over nearly two-thirds of the island. It’s the largest export, and appears as a frequent motif in local art and architecture. A visit to the Aruba Aloe Factory includes a guided tour to view the manufacturing process from leaf to lotion.The museum houses a small collection of ancient aloe planting tools and books on the plant and its history. Of course there are loads of aloe products to purchase at the gift shop.
