Aruba is one of the most popular Caribbean islands, drawing both European and American tourists every year. There are many beautiful beaches on the island, but the high rise resorts are located on Palm Beach.
Aruba enjoys a tropical marine climate, with little changes in temperature year round. The average temperature is around 80 F. Because of its location, the sun is always strong, but the breezes keep the air at a pleasant temperature. The tropical rains and hurricanes are rare.
Although a travel destination all year round, the high season starts in mid-December and ends in April, so during those months the prices will be at their highest both for accommodation and airfare. During the summer, most resorts offer summer sales when you can really benefit from the discounted prices.
