"An excellent choice for people who want everything under one cover." - Washington Post
When you're headed to a resort destination, you need different information than most travel guides can provide.

Flair is an Aruban hallmark -- flair for languages, music, food, hospitality, storytelling, and, above all, for life. You'll notice this joie de vivre as you meander through the streets or mingle with locals in a bar. Perhaps you'll revel in it as you paint the town red, dine at a fine restaurant, kick back at your hotel, or soak up the sun on a beach. Aruba's slogan sums it up best; this is, indeed, "One Happy Island." Aruba's national anthem proclaims, "The greatness of our people is their great cordiality," and this is no exaggeration. Waiters serve you with smiles, English is spoken everywhere, and hotel hospitality directors appear delighted to fulfill your needs.
With its low humidity, average temperature of 28 &186;C (82 &186;F), modest rainfall, and location below the hurricane belt, Aruba seems like paradise. Silky sands and cooling trade winds have made the calm southwest coast a tourist mecca. Most of the island's 28 major hotels -- with on-site restaurants, boutiques, and casinos -- sit side by side down a single strip of shore. Every night sees theme parties, treasure hunts, beachside barbecues, or fish fries with steel bands and limbo or Carnival dancers. Surround all this with warm blue-green waters, and you've got the perfect destination for anyone who wants sun salted with lots of activities. Courteous service, efficient amenities, modern casinos, glorious beaches, duty-free shopping, and remarkably varied cuisine help
fill Aruba's more than 7,500 hotel rooms.
