TRAVEL GUIDE to ARUBA
This is your ultimate travel guide to Aruba!
Aruba has been a part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands since its inception in March 1815.
Aruba is part of The Caribbean region, which is made up of the Caribbean Sea, 30 islands, and thousands more islets, reefs, and cays.
Each island has its own history and identity, so I suggest visiting each and every one, as they are one of a kind. What you will find there?
White sand beaches and resorts, fascinating desert-like landscapes, colorful architecture, vibrant art, and a social scene, all of the above await for you to explore.
There are plenty of 5star resorts in the Caribbean, but you can also travel on a budget, especially if you book in advance.

Best Time to visit
The sun always shines in the Caribbean.
Tourists come to the tropical islands especially when winter strikes their homeland. The temperatures, on average, are between 23 to 30 degrees Celsius regardless of the season.
The island sits well outside the hurricane belt, so there’s very little threat of tropical storms. Truly a year-round destination, there is never a bad time to visit Aruba.
