Dia di Betico commemorates the birth date of Aruba’s Libertador Gilberto Francois (Betico) Croes. He was born on January 25 and it is a national holiday on the island. Betico, a politician pur sang, is especially remembered for fighting for Aruba’s Status Aparte. The day is always celebrated with lots of local folklore, food and games.
Drinks are on special during the Happy Hour (from 12 – 1 pm & 5 – 6pm): expect ridiculously low prices on Balashi Beer, Heineken, Amstel Bright, the Aruba Aribas, the Margaritas, the Long Islands and Sex on the Beach cocktails. There will be love music from 4pm till 6pm.
So, come and celebrate Dia di Betico with the locals: climb the stairs at Hadicurari and enjoy this national holiday at Nos Clubhuis.
