I love to travel, but no matter where I end up I love being close to sandy beaches and cool blue water. Even living in New York, I've managed to settle just 15 minutes by subway from iconic Coney Island with it's iconic fair, white sand beach and wavy waters. So when we go on vacation, we often have these same needs in mind – blue water and fun ideas for everyone in the family from 18 months to 40 years old.
Aruba travel can help you plan all that you can do on this one happy isalnd – including where to find the island's hidden gems and beaches, shopping spots, where to enjoy the nightlife and other cultural activities. You can visit the Aruba 2013 calendar to pinpoint all the events happening when you plan to visit.
Aruba would be a great family destination with outdoor activities for the littlies that us big kids can enjoy as well. Some highlights are Arikok National Park, Ayo rock formations and Indian caves – sounds like the makings of a perfect adventure for my 5 year old Mr P!
Aruba also seems like a piece of paradise similar to my experiences in other Carribean islands – self driving tours, resort lined turquoise water on the West, and sunset cruises and sails. It's difficult to find one happy island that has it all, but Aruba just might fit the blll.
I've experienced one other Carribean Carnival in my lifetime and Aruba's Carnival sounds like a MUST attend event! Starting on November 11 at 11:11 am, their are contests, jump-ups and parades so huge they shut down Aruba's two citiies while they are running over the weekend. Sounds like November would be a great time to go and get away from North America's colder temps, don't you think?
