Traveling to Aruba

Aruba's excellent location makes it an ideal destination for travelers worldwide. Aruba is only 15 miles north of Venezuela, which makes it a quick trip for many South Americans. It is also only a three-hour flight from Miami, Florida, which brings many visitors from the United States and Canada. Of course, many Europeans also visit Aruba every year to enjoy our hurricane-free skies and cool trade winds. Wondering what is essential to pack for your Aruba vacation?
