Aruba is the Caribbean's sandy, arid escape: plush white beaches slope softly into the fizzle of foaming surf, edged sometimes by a scarlet sunset, while fences inland are built of cacti. Mostly flat, almost always 81 degrees Fahrenheit and friendly, you'll get square coins in change for your ice-cream cone on this Dutch isle. Just a short hop north of South America, expect top-notch diving sites, carefully groomed resorts and English spoken with a charming accent.
Bright yellows, pinks and blues liven traditional Dutch architecture on the main streets of Willemstad, ?Amsterdam in the Caribbean', and Cura‡ao's main city. Spend an afternoon shopping and strolling past historic sights that reflect the island's mix of Caribbean and European influences. Watch slowly for turtles while you explore the cave bays, blowhole and natural bridge in Shete Boka National Park. Take a jeep tour of Christoffel Park, steering around the iguanas, goats and flamingos that call this arid place home.
