Aruba is an amazing destination for your round travel. It is a Caribbean Island with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Being outside the hurricane belt, you don’t have to worry about hurricanes in the fall ruining your plans. Here is a roundup of resources to help you plan your trip to Aruba.
Aruba Basics & Travel Guides
VisitAruba.com is your one-stop shop to get answers to almost all your Aruba travel questions. You can learn about the climate and weather, read some quick tips for your first trip to the island and much more. When I first came across VisitAruba.com I assumed it was created by the Aruba Tourism Association. I later found that while it cooperates with the Tourism Association, it is an independent website, which adds a bit of trust to it. This is where I would start my research on the island.

Things to Do in Aruba
Most things to do in Aruba revolve around the beautiful weather, beaches, and other natural resources.
Christy Woodrow loved Aruba so much she went back two times in two years. After her trips she shared her top ten lists of things to do in Aruba to make sure you get the most out of your trip. Going to Renaissance Island to hang out with the flamingos and going on a horseback ride would be first on my list of things to do.
One of Aruba’s most popular things to do is to go to the natural pool. It’s not the easiest place to reach, but getting there is most of the fun. You need a large vehicle to make it along the rocky road, then you make it to the trail to hike before reaching the pool. Looks like it is worth the trip to me. Julie from Earth Trekkers went and shared her experience.

Aruba With Family
Most kids love the beach, which means they will probably love Aruba. There are several beaches known for being kid friendly, especially Baby Beach, named for its shallow waters. Beyond the beaches there are plenty of kid friendly attractions like the butterfly farm and donkey sanctuary. Check out these blogs for more information about going to Aruba as a family.
