Imagine a warm breeze, a sandy beach and water so intensely blue. Are you thinking what I am thinking? I am thinking about Aruba.
I spent years living in Hawaii and I grew to love the beach like no other place in the world. Now years later with a husband and three children, Aruba travel has been on my mind lately. Aruba is one of my bucket list places to see with my entire family.
The cultural melting pot of Aruba plus the island's hidden gems and beaches make this destination perfect for families.
Sharp geographical differences create a unique combination of land and sea activities. Calm, glittering turquoise waters fringed by marshmallow-soft ivory beaches neighbor a national park encompassing a wild windward coast and unsettled rugged interior.
Tour the island in the comfort of an air conditioned coach or hop in a Jeep or all-terrain vehicle for a different view of Aruba. Taxis are abundantly available as is bus service or you can choose to rent a car.
Foodies will delight in the trendy venues and after-hours haunts, from karaoke and martini bars to upscale bistros and casual pubs. In addition, the main strip comes alive at night with shops, kiosks, movie theatres, cafés, restaurants and bars. You can even hop on the wild and wacky barhopping bus.
The tiny island of Aruba offers delicacies such as frogs' legs, venison, duck foie gras and chateaubriand plus fresh Caribbean catches such as mahi-mahi and wahoo. You will also find Argentinean churrasco, Middle Eastern shoarma, Japanese sushi and teppanyaki selections, Spanish tapas, Indian curries, Caribbean jerk ribs, homemade pastas, USDA choice steaks, Maine lobster and local goat stew and keshi yena to tempt your taste buds and give your palate a workout.
WIth amazing shopping, many cultural and island events plus an active nightlife, there is truly something for everyone to do in Aruba.

Beautiful place. I was in Aruba about 2 years ago while on a cruise.
