Caribbean
Holidays to Aruba
Reference: WW77405

Book your Aruba holiday and you'll soon find out for yourself why Aruba has one of the highest numbers of repeat visitors in the Caribbean? Anyone who has ever walked across its white sandy beaches or hiked along the rugged coast can attest to its irresistible appeal. Friendly locals, a compact main city, beautiful weather and a melting pot of cultures are just a few reasons why people return year-on-year.

The capital city of Oranjestad lies on the south-western coast of the island. Here you’ll find a wide range of resorts making it a great base to stay while enjoying days out exploring the islands and its surrounding cerulean waters. While the Caribbean has a reputation as an all-inclusive paradise, Aruba offers a wide range of accommodation and board types that fit the needs of different holidaymakers.

Away from the capital and in the heart of Aruba you’ll find Arikok National Park - an expansive sanctuary with beautiful natural creations found around in every clearing. You’ll also be treated to some of the best views that these striking islands offer. And if you head to the north-east coast, you’ll get to meet Aruba’s unofficial mascot: the Fofoti trees.

It’s not just the landscape of Aruba that is near perfect – it boasts some of the best weather out of all the Caribbean islands. Located just 15 minutes from Venezuela in the warm waters of the southern Caribbean, Aruba lies below the hurricane belt. The term ‘rainy season’ is a foreign concept to Aruba with a drier climate than most Caribbean islands and an average temperature of 27 °C with a soft breeze gliding in from the Atlantic.

Aruba also offers direct flights from several UK airports, making it an easy-to-get-to Caribbean island for British sun-seekers. At Barrhead Travel our worldwide specialists can help you find the correct flight for your location and budget, and complete the package with accommodation that suits your needs. All you’ll need to do is remember your sunscreen.

So what are you waiting for? Book your all inclusive holiday to Aruba today.
