Aruba Vacations 

Aruba is a classic Caribbean destination island, offering package holidays since the 1950s. Aruba, located just 27 km off the north coast of Venezuela, is an island of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean. It features an unusual climate and landscape – dry, with cactus plants. It offers several well-known attractions and events that will keep travellers inspired. Eagle Beach, one of the main resort locations, is famous for having one of the best beaches in the world. Palm Beach, another focal point, features upscale hotels and shopping centres that are sure to please those in search of a premium package. For fun-filled events, the Bonbini Festival is a year-round folk festival celebrated every Tuesday in Fort Zoutman; the Caribbean Festival is held every Thursday night in downtown San Nicolas; while the Watapana Food and Art Festival is held every Wednesday on the festival grounds between the Hyatt Regency Resort and Casino and the Americana Allegro Aruba Beach Resort and Casino. At all of these great festivals, tourists can expect to find great food, music, dance, and craftworks. With so much to offer, it is no surprise that Aruba vacations appeal to honeymooners, couples, wind sporting enthusiasts, beach lovers, and those who can appreciate the many off-resort activity options. 

Getting Around: To get around on your Aruba vacation, you may opt for a taxi or rental car. You drive on the right here, so be wary on your visit. 

Where to Stay: Although all-inclusive Aruba packages are available at some hotels, the majority of hotels are not all-inclusive. Aruba package hotels are typically older structures, with a variety of high and low-rise. Most of Aruba is relatively quiet and serene, making this destination a great option for weddings in the sun or as a honeymoon destination. Consider booking a trip to the 3-star Tamarijin Beach Resort, Aruba’s hotspot featuring 9 dining options, 7 bars, and 3 freshwater pools. For utmost relaxation and luxury, make your way to Riu Palace Aruba, a 5-star beachfront property with amenities and entertainment options perfect for all ages.

Weather: Aruba weather is great, and reliably sunny and warm throughout the year. Aruba is considered to be outside of the hurricane zone, which provides a certain amount of comfort to all-inclusive Aruba holiday travellers. Temperatures are relatively stable throughout the year. Daytime highs in summer average 32C, with nighttime temperatures rarely dropping below 27C. In winter, daytime highs average 31C, and nighttime lows average 24C.

Tamarijn Beach Resort: Aruba Sun, Sand & Sea

My 13 year old daughter and I just returned from a perfect week at the Tamarinj & Divi all inclusive resort. The vast white sand beaches, turquoise waters and billowing breeze were the highlight. We had long beach walks and many swims in the pristine sea. While accommodations were basic, they were comfortable and clean. There were 5 a la carte restaurants to choose from- we went to The Red Parrot, Gingers, and Pure LIme and loved them all. The staff was friendly and attentive, and we found  [... read more]
