A sizzling palette of nightclubs, casinos, world-class cuisine, and dazzling beaches await you in Aruba. This island, nestled in the South Caribbean Sea, offers visitors the whole package: perfect weather, beautiful scenery, and a multitude of fun activities, all wrapped up in only 120 square miles. A combination of Aruba's geographical position and gentle tradewinds guarantees almost perpetually good weather. Travel to Aruba and discover the excitement!

Spend some time sunning at Aruba'slegendary beaches. Miles of pristine sand surrounded by clear turquoise waters entice tourists from all over the world and hotels and resorts line nearly all the beaches. As Aruba stays mostly arid, the weather retains the perfect mix of cool, dry, and sunny. Take your family to the especially placid Baby Beach, at the eastern tip, where snack and drink vendors abound for your needs. On the road there, be sure to keep an eye out for the 300-foot seawall made of coral and rock that Hurricane Ivan swept up overnight in 2004. If you want more privacy than the popular Baby Beach offers, Arashi Beach on the west end remains mostly uncrowded and great for some laid-back swimming and sunbathing. Experts praise Eagle Beach as one of the Caribbean's bests, with dazzling white sand and glitzy resorts. Other lovely places include Grapefield, Malmok, Palm, and Manchebo Beach. Rent a car and spend your vacation sampling the delights of each.

Taste the excitement of Aruba's nightlife by visiting the many bars and nightclubs. Known as a party hot-spot in the Caribbean, Aruba offers a multitude of places to dance, drink, and listen to some wild music, including those not in the touristy locations. Mingle with crowds and try the cheap, tropical drinks. The well known Kukoo Kunuku, a large bus painted in bright florid colors, takes as many as 40 passengers at a time to visit the most frequented bars. Since the Arubans like to party late, most of the action starts around midnight, so prepare for a long night!

Both serious gamblers and those who just play for the titillation find a great time in Aruba's many casinos, including those near Palm Beach. Enjoy the live entertainment every night as you try your hand at a variety of games.

Visit Oranjestad, the palm-lined capital of Aruba, where pastel-colored houses and shops decorate the streets. Browse the many stores in this town for hand-made souvenirs and high end clothing, jewelry, and perfumes, all duty-free. Explore the Numismatic Museum and see the impressive collection of over 40,000 historic coins. Delve further into this island's history at the Archaeological Museum of Aruba, which displays a wealth of artifacts from the indigenous Arawak people.

Other sights include the California Lighthouse and Arikok National Wildlife Park. Take a picture of the red and white striped lighthouse, built by a French architect in 1910 and now closed to the public. The Park takes up nearly 20% of the island, cover the eastern and northern costs. It preserves the incredible ecosystems and natural resources of Aruba and displays abundant flora and fauna as well as ruins of gold mines and old Dutch settlements.

Plan a travel to Aruba to experience some of the best the tropics has to offer. Let down your hair and party to your heart's content at the amazing nightclubs, try your luck at the many glitzy casinos, and work on your tan at some of the prettiest beaches in the Caribbean!
