Take a dive into turquoise waters and explore The Antilla, the largest German freighter, almost 400 feet long and the largest wreck of the Caribbean. This underwater print of the past and over half a dozen shipwrecks makes Aruba a world famous dive site. It is not only the hidden treasures that give this destination flair of its own. Casibari and the Ayo Rock Formations are huge monolithic boulders which rise up from the desert soil inexplicably. Guadirikiri Cave, Fontein Cave or Huliba Cave increase the mystery and appeal through their natural beauty or the presence of ancient rock drawings. The Aruba Carnival or the Bon Bini Festival (welcoming festival) give color in their spectacular parades mixing drops of culture with exotic rhythm.
These are only a few reasons and travel tips which make Aruba a great destination and give it also the highest return visitor rate in the Caribbean. Placed in the heart of Southern Caribbean, only 15 miles off the coast of Venezuela, this magnificent island impresses even though it is only 19, 6 miles long and 6 miles across at its widest point. The calm, blue-turquoise waters and the steady trade winds have made the beaches here world renowned. Even if the beaches are by far what most people associate their holiday to, Arikok National Park encompasses the three primary geological formations that shape Aruba. Scientists, nature lovers, photographers and not only will be pleased to visit the park and see the lava formation, the quartz diorite formation and the limestone formation present here. Arikok National Park is also unique when it comes to indigenous plants and wildlife.
Aruba is an island where you can visit anytime due to the great weather conditions here and no matter the season, it is guaranteed that you will never get bored. Whether you pick the resort courses in scuba diving in order to visit the famous shipwrecks, go horseback riding feeling the breeze of the sea, admiring the sunset and visit the Butterfly Farm or the Ostrich Farm with your children, you will definitely enjoy your stay. The archeology and the numismatic museum along with the Aloe factory will combine the cultural with the historical aspect. The Alto Vista chapel is the first Roman-Catholic Church built in 1750, placed in a dramatic setting above the sea which is very appreciated by couples who want to join their lives in holy matrimony.
Soak up the sun, party and enjoy to the maximum your stay in Aruba. This charismatic island has the potential to please everybody through its colors and diversity which turn this location in more than just a beach with palm trees.
