If you are looking for a safe bet for a vacation during hurricane season then consider going to the island of Aruba. Aruba is just outside the main hurricane belt in the Caribbean so you are pretty sure to have great weather for your trip. There are also many wonderful Aruba vacation packages that you can choose from. Aruba is perfect for everyone because it has Golf, Tennis, Scuba and Snorkeling as well as pristine beaches where you can relax and unwind.
Aruba vacation packages also can be customized to fit anyone’s travel budget. Try to get as much included in the price of your vacation package as you can. This way you will know approximately how much it will cost you before you go on vacation. All inclusive Aruba vacation packages usually include airfare, airport transfers, hotel accommodations, all your meals and drinks – alcoholic and non-alcoholic, entertainment and some activities.
If golf is your thing then you will want to ensure you have a the time reserved at the Tierra Del Sol golf course. It was created by Robert Trent Jones in 1995 and is the only championship course on the island. The times usually are available between 7am and 5pm and prices vary on time of day, day of week, and if you are going in their peak travel season. Call ahead before you go on vacation to check rates and availability or have your hotel’s Concierge Desk do it for you. If you wait until you arrive on vacation you may find that they are booked up.
If tennis is more your sport then you are luck! Most of the hotels and resorts in Aruba have tennis courts. If your property does not have tennis on-site then there are many tennis clubs you can go to. Playing tennis in Aruba is pretty easy to do if you plan ahead and make arrangements before your trip starts.
When you start planning your trip to Aruba keep in mind that the average temperature is just 82 degrees. The island is pretty much flat and dry since it is outside the weather scope of the other Caribbean islands. Between 11am and 3pm you need to be sure you have enough sunscreen on to avoid a sun burn. The heat of the sun can be deceptive especially if there is a cross wind blowing. You will not really have to worry about rain either since it usually only gets about 18 inches of rain each year.
Aruba vacation packages sell out quickly so be sure to book your trip as early as you can. There are not a lot of flights into and out of Aruba but if you are a little flexible you will do just fine. If you want to visit Aruba but also want to see other Caribbean islands then why not consider taking a cruise? With a cruise you get to stop and experience a few different Caribbean islands during the same trip. You do not have to worry about flying directly to the islands as most cruise ships leave from Florida. You might even be able to drive to the port saving you and your family lots of money on airfare.
No matter how you get to Aruba you will have a vacation of a lifetime! Aruba has something for everyone – don’t take my word for it – come experience it for yourself.
