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 northwestern to its southeastern 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).
The population of Aruba consists of over 110,000 residents, which includes over 90 nationalities. The average Aruban can speak four languages: the native language of Papiamento, Dutch, English, and Spanish.
Aruba is also known for its warm and friendly inhabitants; you will feel right at home here!
