A part of the Lesser Antilles in the southern Caribbean Sea, Aruba is a prime vacation destination for tourists looking for white sands, palm trees, and crystal blue waters. One of four constituent countries forming the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Aruba has a dry climate which has helped increase tourism as visitors can expect reliably warm sunny weather. This semi-arid climate attracts vacationers all year round, with temperatures varying little from 82.4°F and yearly precipitation barely exceeding 15.7 inches.
Aruba has one of the highest standards of living in the Caribbean region and takes tourism, which accounts for three-quarters of its gross national product, very seriously. With so much to do in Aruba, I would highly recommend that you first research, then plan out what you want to accomplish on your trip to this tropical paradise. From horseback riding tours at Rancho la Ponderosa to relaxing in the sun at Eagle Beach, Aruba has all the necessary ingredients to make your vacation one that you’ll never forget.
If you’re traveling with family, De Palm Island is a great place for some quality time with a wide range of activities including snorkeling, scuba, sports, dining and bingo. For all you nature-lovers, don’t miss the Arikok National Park or the Ayo and Casibari Rock Formations… you will be surprised and delighted with this unforgettable encounter with nature. Go for a stroll and take a dip in the Natural Pool and experience this perfect retreat for a moment of total relaxation! Hit up Nafanny Spa if you’re looking for one of the best massages at an affordable price, or indulge yourself completely at Body & Soul Spa in Tierra del Sol. If you’re a shopaholic, Palm Beach Plaza, Renaissance Mall and Paseo Herencia are places where you can get your “fix”, offering the best in eateries, retail shops and entertainment.
