World’s elite athletes and stars celebrate with “suite” escape to aruba

ESPYS Elite Celebrates Suite Escape

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).

Arubans are active participants in the international sports craze, as the island is home to seven qualifying Olympians for 2016 summer games and Boston Red Sox Star Xander Bogaerts, who was selected as the starting shortstop for the 2016 MLB All-Star Game. Check out how much fun the athletes had in the below video: 


“Aruba is famous for beautiful beaches and friendly locals, but there’s also a sports-oriented, active side that makes our island the perfect escape for stars seeking both R&R and adventure,” said Tjin Asjoe-Croes.
