Beautiful island with gorgeous beaches and weather. I spent Christmas here a few years back and it was lovely. Dutch cultural elements and funky historical touches as well as truly gorgeous nature.

HOT weather almost all year round with a constant light and breezy wind that cools you off all day. Great for families and young people looking to get away. Also noticed a lot of the older/grandparent generation hanging out in the casinos. Would reccommend staying at the Ritz Carlton when it opens in July/August 2013.

Came here on our honeymoon and really enjoyed it. More of an East coast vacation destination as it is pretty far from California. I like that Aruba is small enough to see the whole thing in a short amount of time, but also diverse enough to enjoy different activities. The desert in the middle and the great beaches surrounding it.

Aruba was fun but honestly I wouldn't go there again. There are far more interesting places to visit and spend your hard earned money. It's a desert island - literally. There's not much to do but lay around on the beach and scuba. Food is rather expensive as well although it's usually pretty darn tasty. We went just after tourist season so that may have had a lot to do with the lack of cheap food. We expected more roadside stands and we found very few. The sightseeing destinations weren't anything to shout about either.
Basically if all you want to do is hang out at a beach around a bunch of folks from New Jersey then Aruba is right up your alley.
