Aruba Mini Guide
What can you Tell me About Aruba?
It’s a reasonably big island found not far off the coast of Venezuela and was a colony of Spain for almost a century before coming under Dutch control. The island is a distant but physical part of the Netherlands. Visitors to the island will detect a very strong Dutch influence in the architecture, language, culture and in some ways, the food. It’s a very popular holiday destination with North Americans and Europeans. Besides tourism, oil refining and gold mining and extraction of guano for phosphate fertiliser production are all aspects the tourist doesn’t see.
How do I get to Aruba?
Reina Beatrix International Airport is the island’s main airport and receives flights from North and South America as well as from Europe. The majority of European scheduled flights route through Amsterdam
whilst Thomson operate a weekly flight to Aruba from London Heathrow Airport
and Manchester. The airport is very close to the capital Oranjestad and there are many ways to access the resorts of the island from the airport.
What Should I do When I’m in Aruba?
If you can drag yourself away from the beach, Aruba has so much to do with shipwreck diving very popular in the clear waters. The island has a ‘mountain’ called the Haystack, which, at only 500ft, still gives a great view out over the island. There are many natural sights worth visiting inland from strange rock formations to lakes and from caves to the cactus fields of the interior.
