Beautiful Aruba is part of the so-called ABC islands, which include Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. These three islands lie south of the hurricane belt — the area in the Atlantic Ocean that is most likely to be struck by these destructive storms. This has made Aruba an especially popular choice for those wanting to vacation in the Caribbean during the summer and fall months. Aruba’s weather also tends to be less humid than a majority of the other islands in the Caribbean.
In addition to great weather, Aruba also boasts beautiful resorts, casinos and gorgeous beaches. Located just 15 miles off of the coast of Venezuela, the tropical island is an independent country that is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. An overview of the best places to visit in Aruba.
