    >>> "it was very windy."
    ----- You want that nice breeze. Without it the island would get hot and humid.

    ----- We go in June every year. Great weather. Love that breeze.

    Rainy season in Aruba is October to mid January. This year the rainy season has not bee too rainy due to El Nino.

    Two years ago when we were on the island during La Nina we had rain every day for 13 days. All days but two the sun was out and shining brightly by 10 am. This year we had one heavy rain shower in 11 days. This too was early morning and the sun was out shining brightly by 9 am.

    As to bugs we travel with bug spray as "insurance" and have never had to use it. There tend to be mosquitos after heavy periods of rain. Again the island has not been rainy as of late, so do not anticipate many mossies. As to other bugs, they may be there but rarely do you hear folks complain about them.

    NO!!!!!!!! The opposite! December averages 3.3 inches of rain, so 3/4 of an inch is like nothing.

    LaCabana Beach waves

    Hi! I'm arriving on January 15th and from what I've read the beach at LaCabana Resort is covered. Has anyone seen the beach today? This is my 6th visit and I have never seen the water high in front of the resort. Hoping all is well in paradise. Thanks for any info. Can't wait to get there. It is 20 degrees here and expecting 5 inches of snow in 2 days.

    My question...: Is what caused the huge waves? Was there a storm at or near Aruba? Perhaps, and I apologize if this is a dumb question; but, I thought Aruba did not get hurricanes or huge storms? Are the waves still huge; or has things calmed down?

    Lisa; or Andrea; perhaps, you could explain.

    Thanks,

    Ed

    during late dec into early jan their was indeed some weird weather.
    i have no idea why.........must be related to global warming or the frigid phenomena we are experiencing now

    but i truly do not know the whys or wherefors.

    my son kevin and his wife were on island til dec 31 and said that the winds and the seas were incredibly high.

    all calmed down and went back to normal after jan 1 .

    yes the water was high up on eagle beach as well as druiff and palm beaches.

    every so often stuff like that happens on island.

    quite exciting indeed

    we arrived 12 hrs after hurricane ivan departed in 2008......once we got in and settled, ivan made a backtrack and pummeled the island with its fierce weather............but not a direct hit (200 miles away) it was a wild night.
