Aruba Travel Guide: One Happy Island

Aruba has long been a preferred vacation destination in the Caribbean thanks to its impeccable weather, exciting activities, friendly locals, and beautiful beaches. It’s no wonder that after visiting just once, you’ll want to return again! No matter if you’ve visited Aruba before or are a first-timer, you’ll want to know the ins and outs of the island so you can make the most of your stay.

Here’s Carefree Destinations’ Aruba travel guide to make your time even more memorable:


With Aruba located just south of the hurricane belt, there’s truly not a “bad” time of year to visit. With that being said, you might have some preferences on what time of year you’d like to travel and what that might look like during your stay:

  • January-March— The winter is where you’ll experience the mildest heat with temperatures typically averaging ranging from the mid-70s to the mid-80s as the season progresses. This season also has very little rain.
  • April-August— Considered the “off-season” for Aruba, this time of year is when you’ll experience likely the highest temperatures (in the 90s) but thanks to the drier, desert climate and winds of the island, the humidity is a bit lower.
  • September-December—If you want to get in a visit before the winter vacationers arrive, this could be the perfect time to go. This is the “wettest” season for Aruba, though there are typically only a handful of rainy days. September is often a hot month with highs in the 90s with gradual declines through December where the high usually averages in the low 80s.


Though there are many great areas of Aruba to stay in during your vacation, there are several popular resort areas you’ll want to consider. Some of the most renowned areas include Eagle Beach, Oranjestad, and Eagle Beach. These areas are great for first-time visitors and are great for a variety of travelers thanks to all of the nearby attractions available.


Aruba is a breathtaking island with so much to do and see. With great year-round weather, you’ll always have plenty of ways to take advantage of the great outdoors and see everything that it has to offer.
