The island of Aruba is located approximately 18 miles off the coast of Venezuela. Surrounded by the southern Caribbean Sea, this popular destination is part of a trio of islands known as the ABCs – Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao.
With its white-sand beaches and year-round warm weather, Aruba has become a hotspot for vacations. Regardless of your budget or group size, you will find a huge range of accommodation on the island, ranging from high-rise hotels to private vacation rentals.
Where to stay in Aruba
There are a number of incredible resorts in Aruba, all offering an array of luxury amenities. Although staying in a resort may seem like the most convenient option, this is not always the case. If you’re planning a family vacation or travelling with a group, hiring a private villa is a much better option. Not only is it more cost-effective than a resort, but you will also be able to enjoy much more space, privacy and freedom.
