Since 1996, Iguana Joe’s has been Aruba’s most popular and acclaimed Caribbean restaurant.

Their menu features local and Carib-Mex favorites such as coconut shrimp, island jerk roasted chicken, sizzling fajitas, stuffed burritos, fresh-caught mahi-mahi and Smokey Joe’s ribs, the best in the Caribbean‚ no bones about it. Most of these incredible entrées are priced at less than $20. Iguana Joe’s bar is not only legendary for being the birthplace of the Pink Iguana‚ an incredibly smooth and refreshing strawberry colada, but is also home to arguably the best mojitos on Aruba! This year Iguana Joe's will open its second location at the Palm Beach Plaza.
