As the world’s elite athletes and stars aligned for the ESPYS, Aruba invited them to celebrate with a “suite” escape to the One happy island. Von Miller, Alexander Rossi, Derrick Henry and Danica Patrick are a few of the many champions planning to enjoy a star-studded vacation in Aruba.
"While Aruba is beloved as the sunniest island in the Caribbean, we also love our stars, and it gives us great pleasure to host these legendary athletes for some well-deserved rest and relaxation,” said Ronella Tjin Asjoe-Croes, CEO of Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA).
