Of Native Indian, Dutch, English, African & Venezuelan ancestry and heritage, Aruba residents love life and will happily discuss the meaning of it with anyone at the market, gift shop, beach or rum shops — especially the rum shops.

History
After 150 years of Dutch colonial rule, the British briefly took possession, adding their island imprint.

Attractions
Eye-catching lava formations, quartz diorites and limestone shape the island’s geological identity.

Beaches
Arashi Beach on the northwestern end skirts a barren landscape and a winding road to California Lighthouse.

Eco-Travel
A dormant volcano, exotic rock formations and cactus plants inform you this is an unusual Caribbean island.

Travel Tips
Major celebrations occur on New Year’s Day, Betico Croes’ Birthday, and Carnival Monday.
