About Aruba

Aruba is a beautiful Island, with gentle and gracious people, an outstanding year round climate (averaging 82°F) and pleasant trade breezes. Its sugar white beaches are rated the “best in the Caribbean” and its clear turquoise blue waters are perfect for snorkeling and windsurfing.

Restaurants range from casual local places to four-star establishments offering exceptional cuisine.

Air travel to Aruba is easy through its international airport (located only about 8 miles from Villa Makai) offering connections throughout the world.

One of our favorite snorkeling coves is Boca Catalina (shown above), which is an easy three-minute drive from the Villa. Palm Beach is within walking distance and Eagle Beach is about a five-minute drive away.

Aruba is a self-governed Dutch Caribbean island with very little unemployment, poverty or violent crime. Almost everyone speaks English and the signs, menus, phone books, etc. are all in English. Direct flights to a modern airport are available from New York and Miami, among other places. Aruba has a very modern fully equipped hospital, a modern phone system for your fax and modem, the Robert Trent Jones II golf course less than 1/2 mile from our house and you can drink the water. The major industry is tourism and the local Arawak Indian and Dutch population is very friendly and helpful.

Because Aruba is located 12 degrees from the equator and is a desert island, the weather is always perfect (that is, if you like year round 82 to 86 degree temperatures, bright sunny skies, refreshing trade winds and crystal clear 82 degree, calm, turquoise Caribbean water every day of the year). Aruba is so far outside the hurricane belt, storms are almost unheard of. The license plates tell the whole story; "Aruba - One Happy Island"
