WELCOME TO ARUBA
Located 15 miles north of Venezuela in the warm waters of the southern Caribbean, Aruba is home to beautiful white-sand beaches, 82-degree days, and some of the warmest people in the world.
TOURISM AND CULTURE
Our island is 19.6 miles long and 6 miles across, with a total area of 70 square miles. We’re located just below the hurricane belt, and unlike many islands in the Caribbean, our climate is dry, so we rarely have a rainy day. On the south and west coasts of Aruba, you’ll find Oranjestad, our capital city, and miles of beaches that have been named some of the best in the world. Here, you’ll find most of the hotels and all-inclusive resorts in Aruba, and Queen Beatrix International Airport (AUA).
In the interior of the island, you’ll find Arikok National Park, a desert like preserve with a variety of wildlife, cacti and dramatic rock formations. You’ll also find some of Aruba’s most striking views, as the ocean crashes against the rugged shoreline below.
Tourists arriving with a flight on Aruba will land at Reina Beatrix International Airport. The Aruba Airport welcomes over 150 flights every week from various cities in the USA such as New York, Boston, Baltimore, Atlanta and Toronto and Montreal in Canada, Amsterdam in The Netherlands, England, Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Panama, Suriname, Curacao and Bonaire. Several local and international airlines such as KLM, Delta, Jet Blue, TUI Netherlands & Avianca offer flights to Aruba.
