Is Aruba the Caribbean Island For You? See What it Has to Offer Before Booking

If you would have told me a year ago that I would be traveling to Aruba in 2014, I wouldn’t have believed you. Don’t get me wrong, I travel frequently and have plans to explore every part of the world; but the small Caribbean island of Aruba? It was nowhere near the top of my list of excursions in the coming years.

If you live on the east coast, the Caribbean is a quick flight away, so you’ve probably enjoyed your share of mini-trips to the warm, humid islands each year. But as a California native and resident, my wanderlust has pulled me more toward European countries, South American cultures and the ever-exotic destinations of the South Pacific. However, when the opportunity presented itself to visit Aruba, I couldn’t turn down the chance to see what makes the island the most touristed in the southern Caribbean.
