After a sold-out first edition on Aruba, we are ready to bring you part 2 during the carnival season.
Soca vs Dancehall started in The Netherlands in 2009 and is the largest Soca event and 2nd largest Dancehall event in The Netherlands at the moment. Artists such as Machel Montano, RDX, Skinny Fabulous, Farmer Nappy, Jeon, Fadda Fox, Asa Bantan, Red Eye Crew and many more have all performed on Soca vs Dancehall. The event is known for good vibes, unity and all out fun. It’s time to bring the vibe to Aruba.

As always, aside from the events and activities in the island, there are tons of excursions that you can enjoy. For one, I recommend Full Throttle Tours Aruba, an awesome speedboat/snorkeling excursion that takes you to the best places of the coast of Aruba to explore the undersea life. Find out why it’s different from other snorkeling excursions on the podcast. You can also check out episodes 101 and 102 of One Happy Podcast to hear the exciting journey from the family behind Full Throttle Tours themselves.
