Seaside escape at Aruba vacation home rentals

The island of Aruba welcomes sun-seekers to its pristine white-sand beaches in the southern Caribbean, where palm trees sway in the trade winds and sparkling, clear waters welcome snorkeling adventures. Days here are spent hopping around historic sites that pay tribute to the island's Dutch heritage, checking out the action at local casinos and shopping districts or stretching out on the warm shoreline, admiring the turquoise sea and building castles in the sand. Once you've selected the perfect Aruba vacation rental, perhaps with an ocean view, it's off for sightseeing tours on buses or all-terrain vehicles to uncover the highlights of the 110-square-kilometer island.

Things to do

Though some of the prettiest sights in Aruba are under the sea and along the shore, the island also has a number of amusements away from the sand, from casinos and golf courses to family-friendly attractions. At the butterfly garden here, you can join guided tours to learn about the life cycle of the colorful insects, while the Donkey Sanctuary allows visitors to help with the feeding and care of the animals that have lived on the island for 500 years. Some of the notable historic sites you can check out include churches dating back to the 1700s, an old Dutch windmill and a 100-year-old lighthouse.

Activities

Things to do near Aruba vacation homes

The turquoise waters around Aruba beckon vacationers to take the plunge and swim with the colorful marine life or head off on boat tours out to sea. Several companies offer sailing excursions that include special experiences like lunch or dinner out on the waves, or sunset cruises to watch the sky display its gorgeous pinks and yellows over the ocean. Many outings offer the chance to splash around in the water, donning snorkel gear to peek under the waves. Divers will want to head to the SS Pedernales and Antilla wreck sites to swim alongside a sunken lake tanker and a German freighter from World War II.

Weather

Best time to travel to Aruba vacation rentals

There's nothing better than spending dry, sunny days on the shores of Aruba, soaking up the rays and running out for dips in the ocean to cool off. Luckily, the warm weather lasts year-round, with average highs in the 80s and lows in 70s, even in the winter months. Winter is the busiest season, though, so if you plan to escape to paradise during this time, you'll want to book your Aruba vacation rental early. Since the island lies outside of the hurricane belt, summer is an excellent time to visit without the threat of the storms that plague some other Caribbean spots.

Natural features

From the beaches to the hills of Aruba

From beaches to intriguing rock formations, the natural features of this Dutch-Caribbean island invite long days spent outdoors. Eagle and Palm beaches are a couple of the most popular sandy spots and between them lies the Bubali Bird Sanctuary, a wetland preserve where you can look for herons, egrets and grebes from atop an observation tower. Pay a visit to Arikok National Park to discover some of the local flora, fauna and landscapes, including desert hills, caves and a natural pool. No matter which part of the 32-kilometer-long island you select for your Aruba vacation rental, you'll find an array of breathtaking scenes in easy reach.
