Sugary white sand beaches? Check. Amazingly clear turquoise waters? Check. Action-packed casinos, delicious restaurants, and exciting nightlife? Aruba has all of these and more.
Located in the southern Caribbean Sea, Aruba is one of the most desirable vacation destinations in the world. It is the perfect place for a relaxing family vacation, a fun-filled trip with friends, or a romantic retreat for a special birthday or anniversary. Quite simply it is one of our favorite places to visit.
The developed tourist areas and desert landscapes give Aruba a decidedly different feel than many Caribbean islands. The island’s friendly atmosphere, solid taxi system, and well-maintained roads also make it easy to navigate on your own.
And, let’s not forget about the beaches.
Aruba is home to some of the most beautiful beaches you’ll find on the planet. From Arashi Beach in the north to Baby Beach in the south, Aruba’s coastline is absolutely packed with stunning beaches – all of which are available for public use.
Whether you want to dive into a shipwreck, explore the island by ATV, or simply relax on the beach, Aruba has something that everybody can enjoy!
