Located 15 miles north of Venezuela in the warm waters of the southern Caribbean, Aruba is home to beautiful white-sand beaches, 82-degree days, and some of the warmest people in the world
On the picturesque southern coast, you’ll find Oranjestad, the historic Dutch capital of Aruba, where the traditional, tall, multicolored houses combine carved wooden doors and typical Dutch tiles with open-air patios. The charm of the city complements the beauty of this popular Caribbean island where the Dutch and indigenous cultures have merged to give Aruba its unique atmosphere. Today’s visitors can enjoy this culture along with beautiful beaches, excellent snorkeling and exciting nightlife
The one thing you should not miss is the water off Aruba which is teeming with marine life. You can see it all up close by taking a submarine 150 feet below the sea. You’ll pass scuba divers, coral reefs and shipwrecks on your journey. www.depalmtours.com/atlantis-submarines-expedition
