Aruba Beyond the Sun and Sand is exactly what the title suggests. This video explores the stories behind the culture, language, art, music, cuisine, natural environment and commerce of Aruba as told by the Aruban people themselves.
Rattlesnakes, sea turtles, caves, hot peppers, the tingilingi box, papiamento and the "Balashi cocktail" are just some of the fascinating subjects covered.
Scenes include interviews with musician Padu del Caribe, artists Ciro Abath and Daan Homan, Carnival float designer Johnny Fingal, restauranteur Lenie Ellis and bar owner Charlie Brouns II and locations such as the Ministry of Agriculture, an aloe vera factory, the water desalination plant, the town of San Nicolas and the unspoiled desert landscapes of Arikok National Park.
