Aruba Overview

Aruba is a country that is rich in wealth and in culture and there are plenty of things to see and do when you honeymoon in Aruba. Whether you want to relax after a hectic time of planning or enjoy a full on experience of adventures, you'll find it all on this island. Choose to stay in luxurious private villas or one of numerous high quality hotel resorts and have the time of your life in Aruba.

Aruba is unlike any of the other tropical islands in the Caribbean. Wildly rich thanks to oil, this island not only has powder soft beaches but the glitz and glamour of Las-Vegas styled casinos and high class resorts. With weekly flights from Canada taking just 5 hours, you could soon be strolling around the pretty pastel coloured towns and villages which, thanks to Dutch jurisdiction, could have you imaging yourself to be in the Netherlands. Due to the arid climate, you'll see a variety of cactus style plants rather than palm trees and lush foliage and Aruba's divi-divi tree is a symbol which features widely on T-shirts, mugs and signs, wherever you go on the island. Enjoy yourself on the famous “Palm Beach” and if you find yourself feeling hungry there's even a street named “Restaurant Road” which is full of eateries. From Dutch and West Indian inspired dishes though to North American fast food chains, there's something to suit every taste and budget. Without doubt, your honeymoon in Aruba will stay with you for a long time.
