Great Flights

Flying these days is simple. If your local airport is an international airport and you’re flying internationally, that will most likely save you some time. If your local airport isn’t an international airport, be prepared for the travel time to be a bit longer.

Extra Luggage

Think carefully when packing. You might not need so much, many of your days will be spent relaxing in the sun. Depending on which airline you fly, extra fees might apply for additional suitcases.

Cancellation Policies

Make sure to ask us about trip insurance. You might not think it’s worth it, sometimes things come up that are inevitable. The small investment could save you a huge headache as well as a saved expense!

About Aruba

Aruba is 14 miles north of Venezuela and it is the smallest and most Western island of the Dutch Antilles.  It is locally known as the ABCs, which includes Bonaire and Curacao.

The capital of Aruba is Oranjestad, which is located just north in one of the many resort areas on Eagle and Palm beaches.

Aruba vacations have wonderful diving and snorkeling along the reef leeward coast and windsurfing and kiteboarding is an excellent watersport due to the constant trade winds.  Deep-sea fishing is another great excursion.
