The Happy Isle", as the locals call it, lays only 15 miles off the coast of Venezuela.  It has a unusual dry desert climate which makes it one of the more desirable destinations in the Caribbean.  

White sandy beaches, lots of resorts and casinos gives it the reputation of "the Las Vegas of the Caribbean.  Combine all this with a Dutch heritage and charm and you have a perfect destination for a perfect honeymoon.

The beaches along the western shore are soft and white and fringed with palm trees, sloping gently toward the calm, transparent turquoise of the Caribbean. The waves of the Atlantic crash like incessant thunder against the northern cliffs, carving high, arched coral bridges and deep, dark, secret limestone grottoes.

 

The weather in Aruba is generally "sunny and warm" with an average rainfall of less than 20 inches a year. The average daytime temperature of 82° Fahrenheit or 27° Celsius. Aruba is located completely outside the hurricane belt, and the constant cooling influence of the trade winds, Aruba is one of the most temperate islands in the Caribbean and just as comfortable in July as it is in January. The difference between median day and night temperatures, and between summer and winter temperatures, is just 3.6°. The rainfall occurs mainly in short showers during November and December.

 

Aruba's first inhabitants were the Caquetios Indians whose earliest known settlements date back to 1000 A.D. 

The Spanish explorer Alonso de Ojeda is thought to have arrived about 1499. The Spanish promptly exported the Indians to Santo Domingo, where they were put to work in the copper mines. During the years that followed, ownership of the island changed hands several times. In 1636, near the culmination of the Eighty Years' War between Spain and Holland, the Dutch took possession and remained in control for nearly two centuries.

 In 1805, during the Napoleonic Wars, the English briefly took control over the island, but it was returned to Dutch control in 1816.
