Aruba is an easy island to get to know, and equally easy to love. Located outside the hurricane belt, just l5 miles off the coast of Venezuela, it is far enough from home for adventure — but small and friendly enough to feel like a second home.
Small? The island measures approximately 20 miles by six, with its 30 luxury hotels lined up neatly along the northwestern shore. The colorful shops and sights of Oranjestad, the capital, are nearby. There are 11 casinos (few are open 24 hours), over 100 restaurants that offer gourmet dining and a dazzling nightlife that features glitzy night and dance clubs.
