The island of Aruba offers some of the best fine-sand beaches and liveliest casinos in the Southern Caribbean, not to mention a wealth of opportunities for sailing, scuba diving, and snorkeling amidst clear blue calm coastal waters. Visitors heading to the colonial capital of Oranjestad will discover a vibrant city with a unique cultural heritage — best explored by wandering among its charming multicolored houses, scenic wharf, and marketplace chockablock with local Aruban art and handicrafts. Further north, the popular resort area of Palm Beach offers top-of-line hotels and white-sand beaches.
