Caribbean travel is always an appealing way to beat the cold, and Aruba is among the cream of the island vacation crop. Its reliable weather makes it tremendously popular, especially for those who like to dive, windsurf, snorkel, kitesurf, and sail.
With more than 25 different dive sites, vibrant coral reefs and delightfully warm waters, Aruba is a fantastic destination for those who love to scuba dive or anyone who wants to learn. Up on the surface there are white sand beaches, plush all inclusive resorts, colourful Dutch architecture, designer boutiques, and lush golf courses.
Is it any wonder that Aruba has the highest repeat visitor rate of any Caribbean vacation destination?
The value offered by all inclusive vacations to Aruba really depends on what you're getting. All inclusives are an incredible bargain compared to purchasing everything separately, but if you're not a big drinker, plan on eating a few meals away from the resort, or won't be taking part in all the tours and activities provided, then it might not be such a great deal. The important thing is to pick the package that includes the elements that you want.
If you don't drink much, a European plan is an excellent alternative to the all inclusive rates. Many resorts in Aruba offer both, so you don't have to compromise on location in the interest of getting your money's worth. There are tons of restaurants, bars, and clubs of all descriptions on the island, many of which are mere steps away from the resorts, and in Aruba it is quite safe to wander off the property. However, in the grand scheme of things Aruba is not a cheap destination, with alcoholic beverages being particularly expensive. Therefore if you do plan to enjoy a few beers and cocktails each day, the all-inclusive route might be your best bet.
The bottom line: take note of what's included in the packages you're considering and choose wisely based on your specific desires.
There are few places on earth with weather that surpasses that of Aruba. Temperatures are more consistent than other destinations in the Caribbean, typically in in the 20s (Celsius), and Aruba escapes the rains and hurricanes that affect many of its neighbours. The downside of having beautiful weather all the time is that Aruba vacations are always in demand, making discount deals harder to come by.
