Explore the Aruba Effect

There’s a special feeling here on One happy island. It could be the Caribbean breeze relaxing your senses as you indulge in pure luxury. Perhaps it’s the wonder you feel when you venture off the beaten path to explore the island’s natural beauty. Whatever it may be, we call it the Aruba Effect - an overwhelming sense of happiness that comes from being welcomed into an experience that just feels… perfect. And the best part? It stays with you long after you leave, introducing a sunnier version of yourself into the world.

Those who have visited our sunny shores know that Aruba’s year-round perfect weather means flexible planning and peace of mind. As a tiny island paradise, Aruba’s size and accessibility means more exploring, more experiences and more vacation. See all the reasons why One happy island is the Caribbean’s best value!

Practically Guaranteed Perfect Weather: If there’s one thing One happy island has an abundance of, it’s bright, sunny skies and wonderfully warm temps. As the island with the most sunny days in the Caribbean, Aruba has consistently perfect weather and refreshing trade winds all year round. That means that when planning your much-needed, warm weather vacation, Aruba gives you more flexibility with travel dates, and you’ll stress less about bad weather putting a damper on your trip. (Especially if you’re traveling with the kiddies!)

Easy to Explore: One happy island is a breeze to navigate, and the beautiful beaches, main attractions and natural wonders are all easily accessible no matter how you roll...rental car, guided tour, public transportation, biking, hiking and more.

Natural Wonders to Refresh Your Mind, Body & Soul: Now more than ever, we all appreciate the value of mental and physical well-being. Aruba is blessed with a bounty of natural beauty for you to find your happy place. As a tiny paradise, Aruba offers so many options for your idyllic wellness journey. Start the day with a sunrise salutation on the beach, take an afternoon nature hike through towering cacti, or get the heart racing with a sunset climb up Aruba’s tallest peak, Hooiberg, for breathtaking 360-degree views.

The "One Happy Island" Vibe: With nearly 100 different nationalities all living happily together, Aruba is the cultural melting pot of the Caribbean. Arubans love to laugh and chitchat and speak English fluently (also Spanish, Dutch and their island’s local language, Papiamento.) Ask a local for directions and you may just wind up with a friend for life. The beautiful thing about the One happy island vibe is that it lasts long after you’ve returned home. You feel it in the shared experiences and memories with loved ones enjoyed in paradise (and in our book, that’s priceless.)



Indulge your wild side by windsurfing, kitesurfing, or cruising on a catamaran above the clear, calm turquoise waves. Or, scuba dive and snorkel through the reefs and shipwrecks beneath them. Venture inland and you’ll find even more to experience. Explore the caves and ancient boulders of Arikok by foot, horseback, or ATV. Dive headfirst into the tranquil depths of “Conchi,” a hidden natural pool. It’s easy to wander the whole island in search of happy adventures.



The story of Aruba is told on the faces of their diverse and friendly people. In the artwork on the walls of San Nicolas; atop the weather-worn patina on the homes in the southern coastal towns; and in the ringing of the steel drums that mark the beginnings of the Bonbini festival. The rich and diverse history of Aruba and its people creates the happy and authentic melting pot you see today.



In Aruba’s restaurants, you’ll find fresh Mahi-mahi, red snapper, and barracuda pulled from the sea and rubbed with creole seasoning. In upscale restaurants and small local gems, stew pots bubble with rice, meats, and rich Latin and African flavors. All in the same day, you can indulge in traditional Dutch pancakes, sip ice-cold Aruba Aribas by the sea, and pile your plate high with pastechi—with a dash of spice from the local hot pepper sauce, pica di papaya. 



Aruba's friendly people are excited to welcome you in English, Spanish, Dutch, and Papiamento. Bathed in consistent sunshine, you can play on white-sand beaches and snorkel in calm, clear waters; discover butterfly farms and donkey sanctuaries; or, sample the authentic specialties of family restaurants. However your family defines happiness, let them help you find it.

Arubans speak their very own romance language. In fact, there’s a Papiamento word they say often here. It reflects the warmth and passion they feel for each other, their visitors, and their island. The word is “dushi", and it translates simply to “sweetheart”. It’s why they invite guests from all over the world to celebrate weddings, anniversaries, honeymoons, and happy lives together. 



Getting married in Aruba is the ideal way to unite two happy hearts. Whether you dream of finding a small and intimate spot, or want to exchange vows outside, with sparkling blue sea as your witness, there are Aruba wedding venues—and on-island wedding planners—perfect for you.



An island escape more than happy to help you relax. In Aruba, it’s just as easy to be one with the waves and your own thoughts in a sunset yoga class. To indulge your senses at a world-class spa. To invigorate your heart by kayaking among the mangroves. To turn off your brain and rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul.
