Going to Caribbean and to not visit this magic small island who has one of the most beautiful women on the planet ( this was for the guys mainly 🙂 ) and with amazing places for scuba diving is really bad. So during my visit in this area of the world i decide to stop by there in Aruba.Aruba, a tiny Dutch Caribbean island off the coast of Venezuela, has dry, sunny weather, blond beaches and gentle surf. Constant trade winds keep things cool and cause the divi-divi trees to slope southwesterly. European influence shows in both its architecture, in which Dutch gables mingle with tropical pastels, and language, with English, Dutch and Spanish spoken alongside the local tongue, Papiamento. Like every island in Carribean Aruba also is famous for all inclusive resorts who offer all kind of activities depend from what you looking for, from honeymoon resorts for romantic vacation to proffesional scuba diving courses and snorkeling around the beautiful reefs.
Many things in this layback island are different than rest of the world, road signs in Aruba are different from those in the US. Familiarize yourself with traffic rules and signs before driving. Roads are very slick after a rain; drive cautiously. For off-road adventure, consider renting a car with 4-wheel drive or a jeep.
