    the majority of tourists are americans, south americans and europeans.
    i am sure there are facts and figure of who and how often but off the top of my head that's pretty much the breakdown.

    from ARUBA.COM

    WHY VISITORS RETURN
    Aruba attracts more than 800,000 international visitors annually and enjoys the highest return rate in the Caribbean. Perfect weather, hospitable people and world-renowned beaches are the most compelling factors for return visits. Also important are the island's mix of luxury high-rise and casual low-rise resorts, its unique natural beauty and culture, abundant land and sea activities, safety and security, and long-time friendships.

    There has been a steady increase in the number of Distinguished Visitors as well as Goodwill Ambassadors of Aruba over the last four years, with combined totals of 804 in 2006; 873 in 2007; 1103 in 2008; and 1197 in 2009.

    Broken down by country, about 90% of these return visitors hail from the United States, principally from Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The balance are primarily from Canada, Germany, Holland, Argentina and Colombia.

    >>>>> "Mid December to about mid April is high season and the busiest."
    ------ Ditto. Would say end of May towards end of June is the slowest as most Cruise Ships stop calling for the Summer months and rush of school children won't arrive till end of June.
    Sept and Oct should be slow also but then many cruise ships start calling again sometimes in the Fall.
    >>>>> "Who is the main tourists"
    ------ Saw the %'s once and U.S. Citizens % was higther than all the rest combined. I have even seen a U.S. Coast Guard Cutter in port once or twice and a couple of times 2 U.S. F16's(or another type) have flew low off of Eagle Beach. Even got a tour of a British Royal Marine Ship one year. Some of the marines stopped by our resort bar one day and got to talking to my wife and daughter.
