Celebrated as one of the most revisited destinations in the Caribbean, Aruba - "One happy island" - offers visitors an unparalleled experience, where pristine, turquoise waters collide against the desert-like terrain of the north shore; where peace and relaxation coexist with wild and rugged adventures; where Dutch influence meets American ease; and where a diverse history parallels a bright future.
Aruba is the Caribbean island of your dreams with a twist of pleasant surprises. Wander deserted beaches, view picturesque gabled houses, take on challenging golf courses, try your luck at dazzling casinos, and experience Aruba’s natural treasures. Aside from the quintessential Caribbean turquoise seas and radiant beaches, Aruba adds in cactus-covered hillsides, dramatic rock formations, and its iconic divi-divi trees along the shore.
The weather in Aruba is, quite simply, stunning. The island is well-known for its dry and mild climate that is unique in the Caribbean. The year-round average temperature is 82 degrees, thanks to cooling trade winds, and the average yearly rainfall is below 20 inches. You’re about as close as you can get to guaranteed perfect weather.
Aruba’s beaches offer a variety of experiences, from secluded escapes to hotspots for people watching and participating in water sports. Beaches along the west coast are lined with popular resorts and filled with activities of all kinds, from sunbathing to snorkeling to parasailing. Along the east coast, the wind and waves cut dramatic landscapes along the shore, making the area perfect for sightseeing and exploring in a four-wheel drive vehicle.
A wide range of accommodations are available 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. Many of Aruba's accommodations are located on the southwestern shore, along a beautiful stretch of white-sand beaches.
