    The island is located south of the equator and a stones through from the South American coast.

    How do we perceive the Canadian province of Nova Scotia? It's an island. Anyone not consider it part of North America?

    Rob- We are going to have to agree to disagree here. This I got from"The" Ohio State University:

    Name: Aruba
    Continent: North America
    Population: 70,800
    Religion: Roman Catholic 82; Protestant
    8%; Other 10%

    In the end it doesn't matter as long as Aruba is where it is!!!!

    "The Ohio State University", love that. OK, it's a draw; my source is my alma mater, Tufts.

    You're right, it doesn't matter. Personally, I think Aruba is in a world if its own so it shouldn't be associated with either.

    Actually, Aruba is on the North Andes Plate. The rest of the Caribbean lies on the Caribbean Plate.

    And the island is 12 degree NORTH of the equator.

    At least it always has been on all of the maps I've looked at.

    Some of us might wish to actually go to some manner of Aruban government website for some degree of correct information.
    Really.... going to a US university site for information on a country that has nothing to do with the US other than tourist appeal?
    Why?

    Okay, you almost had me second guessing myself. if you were considering Cape Breton as the island on the east coast, then I agree but . . . I checked and double checked and not al of Nova Scotia is an island :-)

    I just got an old postcard from the Concorde. I found the description on the back to be interesting:

    in today's MORNING NEWS-concorde-long-back-small-.jpg

    I immediately found it unusual because of the reference to "South American warmth and hospitality." I have never heard of any hotel in Aruba describing itself in terms of South America and always thought of Aruba purely in terms of being Caribbean. It's not on any continent, it's in a series of islands. Or so I thought. I know the Concorde tried especially hard to attract Venezuelan tourists, at least during parts of its existence, so I thought that might be why they said "South American." Now, I ran across this thread. Interesting.
