About Aruba

Aruba is a self-governing part of the Netherlands Antilles, alongside the islands of Bonaire and Curaçao. Although it's easy to think of Aruba as an average Caribbean island, the landscape of Aruba is uniquely arid. The island's weather is uniformly sunny and generally free from natural disasters, which makes it a prime destination for tourists. The island is located closer to South America than it is to North America, but it is technically part of the latter.
