If you’ve visited Bucuti and Tara Beach Resorts, you may know that we hold a special place in our hearts for all members of the animal kingdom. Our resident Parakeet Jessie (known on the island as an Aruban Prikichi) and Paco, a Yellow-Head Amazon Parrot, are known and loved by many of our guests.

Jessie just joined us some months ago, and Paco has been with us for more than 23 years now.


As many of you know, we often like to refer to Aruba as "One Happy Island." Our beautiful beaches, the crystal clear seas and our friendly people make this moniker ring true, as does one more extremely important attribute, safety.


As many of you know, we are passionate about the environment here at Bucuti and have been ever since I opened the doors in 1987.

While ’sustainable’ and ’eco-friendly’ are certainly buzzwords in the travel industry today, many shades of ’green’ exist.
