Aruba sunindex: the best time to travel to Aruba
Aruba is very suitable as a holiday destination all year round. The main source of income for Aruba is tourism. The high season is from the second part of December till the second part of April. During this period mainly American tourists travel here. The prices for a hotel room are much higher during this period. Aruba is not an ideal destination for backpackers or for low budget holidays. Almost all the hotels are in the higher segment (3 stars or higher) and aim for tourists with a higher budget. The prices for food, beverages and excursions are also higher than, for instance along the European coasts. However, for most the higher costs are worthwhile. The island offers pleasant weather, beautiful beaches and much hospitality. The service level of hotels and restaurants is high giving you the feeling you are really a guest. If your budget allows it Aruba may be one of the best winter sun destinations, especially at the end of winter.
