Aruba’s only international airport is the Queen Beatrix International Airport (AUA) located in Oranjestad. Besides the U.S., it also services Trinidad and Tobago, most Caribbean countries, the northern coastal countries of South America, Canada, the Netherlands and some other parts of Europe. Though the airport is small, it has a handful of retail stores including duty-free goods, as well as restaurants and bars, ATMs and free Wi-Fi.
While the waterfront horizon is the image that appears on many Aruban postcards, the unmapped terrain also provides stunning views of the island. The Natural Pool called Conchi is a day trek that you'll need an ATV to reach. Located on the Windward Coast, Conchi is a concealed pool that feels like your own secret on the island. After you make a splash there, head to the mainland enclosed Arikok National Park, which is home to dozens of varieties of cacti, tropical flowers, plants and indigenous wildlife.
Endless venues to kayak, scuba dive, fish, sail, cruise or windsurf will whisper to you with the breeze in Aruba. From inside a catamaran, the Aruban sunset is particularly stunning. Embark on a submarine expedition to ogle at coral reefs and shipwrecks in air-conditioned comfort. And if you’d like to combine surf and turf, take an off-road adventure to the Natural Pool - a unique circular formation of volcanic rocks in the ocean - where you’ll be able to get out of your Jeep and take a dip.
Take time to enjoy the local tastes of Aruba. With so many different influences: the proximity to Venezuela, the traditional Dutch cooking styles and the impact of resorts and tourists, Aruba has restaurants to feed every appetite. Familiar chain restaurants exist throughout the island, but there are also native spots where you can dive into local delicacies and immerse yourself in the mix of influences that make this island a unique pleasure to behold.
Aruba’s tropical climate is moderated by constant trade winds from the Atlantic Ocean. That means no matter what time of year you visit, you’ll see a pretty constant temperature - generally somewhere between 80-85 °F. And because annual precipitation in Oranjestad rarely tops 18.5 inches (a relatively small annual amount), there’s no real rainy season to contend with when planning your trip
