Aruba

The Caribbean island of Aruba is to the north of coastal Guyana and Venezuela. Aruba is known as one of the comfortable ABC islands, with Bonaire and Curacao. Questions typically refer to the island's native Arawak and colonial Dutch heritages; cactus strewn landscape; safe location outside the hurricane belt; stable politics within the Kingdom of the Netherlands; and tourist attractions of predictably sunny warm weather and sheltered beaches.
