Welcome to the Happy Island! Aruba surely lives up to its nick name. It is the perfect destination for anyone who is looking for pure relaxation and fun in the exotic waters of the southern Caribbean. This tiny island located just off the coast of Venezuela is barely 20 miles long and 6 miles wide. A former Spanish and then Dutch colony, Aruba offers a multicultural Caribbean experience. This cultural diversity is felt in the food, architecture, and ethnic makeup of the Island. Palm Beach, just north of Oranjestad (the main city) is home to most of the resorts and nightlife of the Island. Visit the butterfly farm, discover the marine life and tropical fish in the Atlantis submarine, or take a dip in the natural pool. Whether you are a group of friends, a couple, a family or a solo traveler, your stay in Aruba will definitely be a memorable one.
