Somehow, about 15 years ago, a flamboyance of flamingos arrived at the Renaissance Hotel in Aruba. Flamingos are not native to Aruba, so their arrival remains a mystery. Other wild flamingos have visited the mangroves on the island over the years, but they moved on, likely back to their native Bonaire nearby. But not these flamingos.

The original 12 flamingos who decided to extend their stay have dwindled to six today. Shortly after, it was obvious that flamingos weren’t leaving, the hotel began to care for the birds, clipping their wings and managing their diets and general well-being. If they were going to stay, at least they were going to stay healthy.

Hotel guests are welcome to interact with the flamingos on the private flamingo beach, but visitors need to pay the $99 day-use fee to take selfies and frolic with the friendly birds.

Corey spent some time with the flamingos while in Aruba. “They are so used to human interaction that they will walk right up to you and eat from your hands. It was pretty jaw-dropping. They were so tame, it was like they posed for me, forming this circle. It reminded me of a classic band photo.”
