4th of July Aruba Beach
We love Stars and Stripes- 7 Reasons to celebrate the 4th of July in Aruba

If you are looking for a fun, comfortable and hassle- free 4th of July getaway, Aruba is the perfect vacation spot to celebrate one of the most celebrated national US holidays. Below are a few reasons why you should celebrate 4th of July in Aruba this year or the next with participating hotel deals!

1.We offer you Unlimited Sunshine

With the majority of Americans only having 2 weeks of vacation yearly, vacation time is a highly valued commodity. Picking the perfect vacation spot is key. Did you know Aruba has the most sunny days in the Caribbean and therefore your safest bet for a vacation filled with sunshine? The perfect weather for your 4th of July BBQ!

2.We Speak your Language

Arubans are amongst of the most multilingual people in the world, as the average Aruban speaks up to 4 (sometimes 5) languages. Papiamento, our native language and Dutch are our official languages, English is commonly used as the official business language and due to our proximity to South America all Arubans speak Spanish as well. Here's a funny video on how to learn Papiamento in a few minutes: 

3.We Foster our Special Relationship with You

Arubans have a special relationship with America. Ever since we opened the doors of our first hotel back in 1934, Americans were amongst the pioneers to explore our beautiful island. Today, Americans make out the majority of our visitors, and we cannot thank you enough for choosing Aruba as your vacation destination.

4.Your Safety and Wellbeing are our Priority

Aruba is one of the safest islands in the Caribbean as reported by the United Nations. Last year, Aruba received a record-high 1.07 million stay-over visitors. We also boast the highest number of repeat visitors in the Caribbean. With tourism responsible for 90% of our GDP, safeguarding your wellbeing is top priority.

5.Travelling to Aruba is Easy

With our state of the art Queen Reina Beatrix Airport we offer US pre-clearance and welcome all major US carriers. Miami is only a 2,5-hour flight and New York a 4.5-hour flight. All our supermarkets, restaurants, gasoline stations and shops accept US dollars and most offer the ability to pay with credit card as well. This means less time handling your vacation finances and more time having fun in the sun!
