Aruba

Aruba is an island that can make your dreams of endless sun and scenery come true. With breathtaking blue skies, crystal clear ocean waters and white, sandy beaches, Aruba is the ideal destination for a wedding, honeymoon or family vacation.

Aruba is a 33 kilometre-long island of the Lesser Antilles in the southern Caribbean Sea. It is located 27 kilometres north of the northernmost tip of Venezuela. Though it is one of three entities within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Aruba operates as a completely autonomous country.

The climate is tropical marine, with a very strong sun, though a constant light breeze keeps the temperature pleasant. There is little seasonal temperature variation, as Aruba is mainly a dry climate with little rainfall. When the rain does arrive, it usually does so only at night - and then only for a few hours. Because of its location south in the Caribbean, Aruba is outside of the zone usually affected by hurricanes.
