Mixing island life and modern comforts, Aruba is a very popular destination in the Caribbean. Aruba is one of the Lesser Antilles Islands and is located about 12 degrees north of the equator, close to the Paraguana peninsula of Venezuela. There are some truly beautiful hotels in Aruba making this a top destination in many travelers' eyes.
The high season for travel to Aruba is between December 15 and April 14, while the low season for tourism is between April 15 and December 14. The weather is almost always nice with calm seas and sunny skies. The best time to travel depends on what you are looking for in a vacation. You can find Aruba hotel packages throughout the year, but to get the best deals, make your reservations early.
For Aruba hotel deals, the months of June to August are the low point of the tourist season and they offer some great deals. The low season will yield some of the lowest discount rates.
During the high season, you can still find cheap hotel deals, though doing so is a touch more difficult. Especially during high season, it's important to book rooms early to ensure you are finding the lowest prices especially on early bird specials.
Regardless of when you go, Aruba is an exciting place for the entire family. Unlike many Caribbean islands, Aruba doesn't really have a hurricane or tropical storm season, and, between mid-December and mid-April, the trade winds bring a steady breeze to the air. The beach is always fun no matter what time you visit.
Children and adults alike will enjoy such attractions as the island's Butterfly Farm, which will allows visitors to watch a caterpillar become a butterfly. At the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary, you can see and visit donkeys and, if you arrive early enough, you can even help feed the animals. Some cheap hotel deals in Aruba may include discounts to these two family-friendly attractions.
For music lovers, try to plan your visit around the Soul Beach Music Festival held on Memorial Day weekend each year. This festival often features top musicians and takes over the island for five days. Festivities during this time start early, and parties go on until late in the night. Keep an ever-vigilant eye out for a cheap Aruba hotel deal during this period.
If you want a real party, however, visit Aruba in January and February. During this period is the six-week non-stop party known as Carnival. Of course, hotel rooms are most expensive during this time. Some Aruba hotel deals during this time will include other special additions or bonuses.
Many Aruba hotels are resort-style hotels. Despite their high quality, these hotels can often be a great value due to their all-inclusive nature.
