Best time to take a vacation to Aruba

  • Best Time to Go

    Aruba is truly a Caribbean jewel because of its luxurious resorts and pristine beaches. The island is located south of the typical hurricane route, so it doesn't usually experience strong hurricanes. The rainy season occurs between the months of October to December. However, December usually only receives scattered rain showers at night. Thus, exciting Aruba vacations can be enjoyed all year round. Although hotels may slightly vary, the general low season starts from mid-April to mid-December. Visitors, who love the heat and sun, can come in September when the temperature is the hottest and accommodation rates are low. Arriving during the Aruba Carnival, which runs from January until March, is a great chance to party with the locals and witness colorful parades.

Insider tips for Aruba travel

  • Turquoise Coast

    To get away from the crowd, walk further to the far end of the Turquoise Coast, where secluded beach sections are equally beautiful yet quiet.

  • Machebo Beach

    Complete your Aruba travel experience by tasting native dishes served in restaurants near the Palm Beach, Noord, Eagle and Machebo Beach areas.

  • ArubaSalsa Dance Club

    Aruba's exhilarating nightlife can be found on the southern coast, or learn to salsa at the ArubaSalsa Dance Club centrally located in Santa Cruz.

  • Ayo Rock Formations

    Aside from enjoying the beaches, you should also venture to the north coast, where sites like the Ayo Rock Formations and the old California Lighthouse are located.

  • Arikok National Park

    Riding an ATV is a great way to explore the Arikok National Park, or take guided hiking tours on trails that span over 20 miles.

Aruba highlights

  • Aruba highlights
  • Archeological Museum

    Peer into the past at this newly-renovated museum, a bona fide bubbling pot of Aruban culture and heritage. Open from Tuesday to Sunday, with a whopping 10,000-plus artifacts and free admission, this museum is a must on your Aruba vacation.

  • Bushiribana Ruins

    For 19th-century history on your Aruba travels, check out beachfront remnants of Aruba's gold mines. Although that shiny commodity has now been replaced by rubble and graffiti, it's still worth a visit for a fascinating glimpse into the past and stunning ocean views.

  • Cura di Tortuga

    Forget the resort pool, this rock-ringed lagoon offers a real slice of paradise. And while Aruba is known for its beaches, Cura di Tortuga is the pick of the bunch. Driving the appeal is the effort to get there: Trek over landscapes of rugged terrain, and then dive in; your first splash will be bliss.

  • Quadariki Cave

    For a break from the sunshine that won't break the bank on your Aruba travels, delve into these magnificent cave chambers, where there's just enough natural light trickling down to find your way around the peaceful beauty. Entry is free, unless you want to buy a flashlight at the concession stand for a couple of bucks.

  • Wildlife sites

    Budding zoologists flock to Aruba's wildlife sites from Palm Beach to Santa Lucia. Snap photos of butterflies, learn about metamorphosis and tour the Butterfly Farm in Palm Beach. Admission includes free return visits for the duration of your Aruba vacation. Bring carrots and apples to the Donkey Sanctuary in Santa Lucia where you can feed the donkeys and even adopt your own. Admission is free, but donations are graciously accepted.
