Sunning, sailing, diving, dining, and partying – in the vast Caribbean, vacation fun is spelled “Aruba”! And there’s a beachfront resort for every type of vacationer, from singles, to families, to couples.
Aruba is the Caribbean of your dreams, an island of azure seas, brilliant beaches, colorful towns, dazzling resorts, and fun in the sun.
By fun, we mean windsurfing, jet-skiing, water rides, swimming, sunbathing, tubing, water-skiing, casino gambling, sailing, golf, tennis, sightseeing, horseback riding, Jeep tours, snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking, shopping, biking, and dining. And that’s just for starters.
Making it all possible is Aruba’s mild climate – the year-round average temperature is 82 degrees, thanks to cooling trade winds – and the friendly Arubans themselves, who are hospitable, well- educated, and often speak several languages.
The island offers a wide range of accommodations to welcome you, beginning with luxury high-rise hotels that provide opulent surroundings, stellar service, and numerous comforts. Many of the low-rise hotels are characterized by a homey feel, gorgeous pools, and casual-style dining. Villas are ideal for groups, but if you’re on a tight budget or planning on an extended stay, Aruba’s spacious apartments can fill the bill. Many of the accommodations are located on the southwestern shore, along a stretch of white-sand beaches.
You’ll find fabulous cuisine in many of the resorts, as well as outside, as International menus highlight Indonesian, Japanese, Chinese, Dutch, Italian, French, and Cantonese cuisine. Families with kids will also find all of the popular fast-food chain restaurants.
Island-wide, the sights are lovely, from colonial ruins to Mother Nature’s handiwork. Explore the arid, desert-like interior on an ATV, and marvel at the iconic divi-divi trees that line the shores.
