Canadian clients can fly from Toronto Pearson Airport, Buffalo NY, Rochester NY, Burlington VM, Seattle WS. Your Aruba Vacation is only a few hours away!

Climate
Aruba enjoys consistently mild temperatures. There is no major rainy season. The ocean’s average annual temperature is about 82 degrees all year long but constant cooling trade winds makes even the hottest days comfortable. December through April is the most popular time to visit. During Carnival, just before Lent, the island has parades, festivities and parties. For a more relaxed atmosphere and less crowds, it is recommended that you visit in mid-April through September.

Aruba is NOT in the Hurricane Belt.

Aruba lies of the outer fringe of the hurricane belt but during the season, June through November, there may be a few wet or windy days. Changes in world weather patterns have resulted in warmer temperatures in the summer months and more precipitation in the fall. On very few occasions there may be inclement weather as a result of a hurricane in other parts in the Caribbean.

Population
Aruba is home to about 100,000 people. Its population is made up of an international mixture of people. Their ancestry is a mix claiming Caquetios Indian, African and European roots. Very friendly and cosmopolitan.

Language
Aruba’s national language is Papiamento. However, the people speak many languages including English, Dutch and Spanish.(90% speak English)
