    Aruba during June

    Hi all,

    I'm new here and will be going out to Aruba June 14-19th with my fiance and I cannot wait! We're staying at Tamarijn. I had a couple questions that maybe you guys could help answer.

    Are there a lot of people around during that time - June 14-19? I ask because I know we're not going during the peak season and I'm hoping it won't be "dead" there.

    Also does it rain a lot in June?

    I'm so excited about our trip in 10 weeks!

    rain is more frequent in late fall and early winter
    that being said, showers happen from time to time year round and last for just minutes.

    june is not a dead time
    lots of families traveling during school vacations
    but, june is certainly "not packed"

    the real quiet time is mid sept - early/mid november

    you will love the tamarijn

    ask as many questions as you want
    we are all full of opinions, answers, and lots of funny business

    >>>> "Are there a lot of people around during that time - June 14-19?"
    ------- NO! Even most cruise ships stop coming first of June and more children won't show up till end of June.
    >>>> "I'm hoping it won't be "dead" there."
    ------ Its never dead. Too many people can be not good. Have to fight for a beach/pool hut/chairs during Prime Time.
    >>>> "Also does it rain a lot in June?"
    ------ Usually NO. Think June is great.

    We will be at the Tamarijn June 17 - 29. There will be plenty of people there.
    We were at the Tam June 12 - 24 last year and there were plenty of people there, including children.
    We have been to Aruba numerous times in June and it is one of our favorite times of the year.

    The island was very dry when we arrived last June following a very very rainy "rainy season'. While we were there there was no significant rain until we were at the airport waiting for our flight to leave Aruba. It rained hard for two days straight. NOT NORMAL WEATHER FOR JUNE. It will HOWEVER be extremely windy. June IS the windiest month of year in Aruba. 20 mph below is sustained...gusts are well in the high 30's, thus the month that the Hi-Winds Windsurfing Tournament is held.

    June weather
    Average high temperature 90 F.
    Average low temperature 80 F.
    Average temperature 83 F.
    Average water temperature 81 F.
    Average rainfall .70 inches (20.3 inches annual)
    Average windspeed 20 mph

    Lizzardo,

    I think what my husband was trying to ask is if you need food for the 4 legged "kids". (We always refer to our yorkies as our kids so all pets become "kids" to us.)

    The bunker bar at sunset is great - there's nothing quite like watching those pelicans dive for fish. You end up sooooo captivated by them you forget you're drinking - hic!
