Whether it’s adventure or relaxation you crave,
Aruba offers an endless array of options!
Just 30 minutes north of the equator, the southwest coast of Aruba is a true lotus-land. With its miles of palm-fringed, powder-soft beaches, all lapped by aquamarine sea and trimmed by a glittering necklace of extravagant resort hotels, this is truly a place where you can escape for an unforgettable Caribbean holiday.
A major package-tour destination for Canadians, in Aruba things run smoothly and the visitor infrastructure is polished. It’s a cosmopolitan culture with 80 nationalities represented with most locals speaking at least four languages: English, Spanish, Dutch (the official language) and Papiamento, a native dialect. The local bus system serves visitors well and car rentals are easily available and with less than 24” of rain a year, hot, sunny, breezy days are pretty much guaranteed.
Major recreational activities include the time-honoured holiday practice of duty-free shopping and island stores are well stocked with buys in jewellery, watches, china, crystal, linens and fragrance. Aruba is a mecca for “foodies” and with over 100 restaurants offers dining options beyond measure. Plenty of glossy casinos and nightclubs invite you to party.
