One Happy Island
In the warm waters of the Caribbean sea lies Aruba, our One Happy Island.
Aruba is located in the mid-south of the Caribbean Sea, about 29 km north of Venezuela and 80 km northwest of Curaçao. It measures 32 km long from its north-western to its south-eastern end and 10 km across at its widest point. In 1986, Aruba acquired a separate status within the Kingdom of The Netherlands and formally separated itself from the other islands of the Netherlands Antilles. Today, Aruba remains a constituent country of the Kingdom of The Netherlands. The local currency is the Aruban florin (AWG).
