Located 15 miles north of Venezuela in the warm waters of the southern Caribbean, Aruba is home to beautiful white-sand beaches, 82-degree days, and some of the warmest people in the world.

Aruba’s rich, multicultural past is reflected in the, cuisine, architecture and the warm, friendly people. What began as a fishing outpost for Amerindians has changed hands between the Spanish and Dutch throughout the centuries, and is now a diverse constituent country of the Netherlands.

The Island is 19.6 miles long and 6 miles across, with a total area of 70 square miles. Located just below the hurricane belts, and unlike many of the other islands in the Caribbean, the climate is dry, so rarely does it rain. On the south and west coasts of Aruba you’ll find Oranjestad, the capital city, and miles of beaches which have been named the best in the world. Here you will find most of the hotels, all-inclusive resorts, and Queen Beatrix International Airport (AUA).

The interior of the island is desert like and it is where you will find Arikok National Park, a preserve with a variety of wildlife, cacti and dramatic rock formations. You will also find some of Aruba’s most striking views, as the ocean crashes against the rugged shoreline. On the northeast coast, along the windward shore, you will see the island’s unofficial mascots, the Fofoti Tree. The constant trade winds have permanently sculpted them into graceful, southwesterly bending forms.
