Aruba … If that word makes you think of paradise, pristine beaches and vibrant nightlife, beautiful places and perfect weather, you won’t be disappointed.
Aruba is a charming contradiction, a “two-sided” island. Its milky beaches and clear blue waters will make you feel like you are the first person to walk on the sand and your feet will get wet. But its Vegas-style casinos, parties and shows reveal the wildest side. Aruba is the perfect marriage of entertainment and leisure, an island where there really is something for everyone.
All Inclusive and Aruba are almost synonymous. With its relaxed atmosphere, the last thing you want to do is look for your wallet, worry about paying for your daily meals, and constantly monitoring your family vacation budget. With the accessibility and convenience of the all-inclusive resorts, visitors to Aruba can forget about it and let the charm and spirit of Aruba sweep them away.

or Wyndham Aruba Beach Resort
or Marriott Resort & Casino Stellaris
or Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino
or Resort Hyatt Regency Aruba

The Aruba calling card is the perfect year-round weather. Aruba is well below the hurricane belt. It is one of three islands, along with Bonaire and Curacao, located outside the hurricane belt. The average annual temperature is 83 degrees Fahrenheit, and the rainfall is only 17 inches a year, most of which occur in October and November. It is rare and warm and does not last more than 15 minutes. If you are planning a vacation on the sun, choosing Aruba is almost a guarantee that you won’t get stuck in your room, watching the gray clouds fly over the roof.
If the blue waters tell you the name, and in Aruba you will surely find the island full of options. Snorkelling, windsurfing, deep sea fishing, paragliding, water skiing – Aruba is a must. If you can go scuba diving or learning, Aruba is world renowned for its coral reefs and friendly waters. At the all-inclusive resort, many water activities are free. Others, such as scuba diving, can be arranged conveniently at the concierge.
Exploring Aruba is easy with an island tour. Better yet, consider a Jeep tour. Driving is fun and the places are amazing. The most photographed place in Aruba is the natural bridge, a coral formation 25 meters above the sea. Kids love to guess what cacti look like, marking the island outside the complexes.
