With snow falling in the Northeast and horrendous weather in the Midwest, escaping to an island paradise seems like a dream. Expansive beaches, palm trees spotting the sand with shade, sapphire and emerald-colored water in every direction – the island of Aruba is exactly what one daydreams of as winter shifts to spring and the yearning to escape hits full force.
Welcome to a sunny day in island paradise: 82-degrees Fahrenheit with only a few clouds scattered across the sky. Sparkling, aquamarine waters gently brush the vibrant, white beaches while a lone windsurfer floats on the horizon, catching air on the low-breaking waves. Farther down the shore, a couple riding horseback disappears down the coast, basking in the warm temperatures and loving every minute of their vacation in Aruba.
The small yet plentiful island of Aruba is a divine place for all things outdoors, a sparkling jewel on the bracelet of the Lesser Antilles. If the Caribbean is the place you want to be, look no further – Aruba is the perfect island destination.
