I'm sure you've seen the ads of Aruba being called "one happy island", and they are right!

What to Know: Aruba is part of the ABC islands, which consist of Aruba, Bonaire & Curacao. Oranjestad is the capital of Aruba and is also where the night life happens, with great restaurants & lots of casinos for those hungry gamblers.

What to Love: You wont have to worry about a storm or any bad weather because Aruba is not in the hurricane zone, so you can enjoy all year round. Another great thing to love is the several languages they speak, from English to Spanish, Dutch and their native language Papiamento.

What to Eat: If you're looking for fresh seafood look no further than the Driftwood Restaurant & make sure to ask for the "catch of the day". If it's steak, sausages & meats then head to Amazonia Churrascaria located in the palm beach area of Aruba. For those romantic newly married couples head to Passions on the Beach and make sure to make reservations around sunset.

Things to Do: Whats not to do that you can't do on the other islands, but a few islands offer the deep sea Atlantis Submarine Expedition. You get the chance to get an upclose view of marine life while diving up to 130 feet under water, Pretty cool huh? For More Info check out Viator Tours
