It’s fun for the whole family! This summer, Aruba is inviting families to enjoy an unforgettable getaway to the island of 90,000 friends you haven’t met yet. The island’s white sandy beaches and bright blue skies provide the perfect backdrop for a fun-filled trip featuring activities, events, and hotel packages guaranteed to appeal to the entire family.

In addition to year-round 82 degree weather and cooling trade winds, Aruba offers exciting land and water activities for travelers of all ages. Families can take Jeep tours of the island, explore the Arikok National Park and brand new visitor center, as well as visit attractions such as Aruba’s Butterfly Farm, Ostrich Farm or the Donkey Sanctuary. Aruba’s multitude of water activities includes boat tours of the island and opportunities for snorkeling, scuba diving, jet skiing and windsurfing.
The plentiful options for activities available on island are complemented by cultural, sporting and environmental events throughout the year. Families visiting Aruba can enjoy the 24th Annual Aruba Hi-Winds, the largest amateur windsurfing and kite boarding competition in the Caribbean taking place from June 30 to July 5, 2010, at Beaches at Fisherman’s Hut – Hadicurari. Another exciting event occurring on the island this summer is the 17th Annual Aruba Reef Care Project on July 3-4, 2010. Families can partake in Aruba’s largest volunteer environmental initiative, which works to clean up the island’s most popular beaches, dive and snorkel sites.
