Aruba

Photo Gallery  |   Hotels  |   Optional Tours  |   Travel Tips / Getting Married
An island of enchanting contrasts, Aruba is blessed with turquoise waters, radiant beaches and prevailing trade winds ensuring a near perfect climate year round.

Aruba lies just 18 miles off the coast of Venezuela and covers an area of 70 square miles; 20 miles at its longest and 6 miles at its widest. Visitors to this Dutch-influenced island will experience a dramatic juxtaposition of cactus-clad desert hillsides, a Dutch windmill and world-class resorts with palm-fringed beachfronts.

You'll find beautiful hidden beaches, windsurfers gliding across the waves, dazzling casino action, a championship golf course and irresistible shopping in the charming capital of Oranjestad; all the ingredients for a perfect island escape!
