Aruba’s nickname is “One Happy Island” and its locals surely live up to that moniker. Arubans are known over the Caribbean for their warm, friendly and welcoming demeanor. Other major draws for this desert island include sunny weather, white-sand beaches and delicious international cuisine. Additionally, the clear waters provide the perfect backdrop for snorkeling and diving, while windsurfing and parasailing are also very popular activities. And despite the tragic and unsolved disappearance of an American tourist in 2005, Aruba remains one of the safest islands in the Caribbean. One last consideration in planning an Aruba trip is that this Dutch island is outside the hurricane belt, which means a lesser likelihood of encountering a seasonal natural disaster.
