Happy Island
A Dutch outpost in the Caribbean, sun-drenched Aruba provides a mix of modern seaside resorts and quiet coastal areas ideal for those wishing to escape the crowds. Vacations in Aruba, known affectionately as the "Happy Island," generally combine water-based activities with tours of the untamed backcountry, where you can discover unusual rock formations, historic churches, ostrich farms, and animal sanctuaries. Island capital Oranjestad offers some of the finest shopping and cultural sightseeing in Aruba, with an eco-friendly electric streetcar providing quick access to all of the city's major attractions, including numerous shops, restaurants, and hotels.

Curacao travel guide

Beaches · Bridges · Scuba & Snorkeling
Take a trip to Curacao and lounge on its picture-perfect beaches and coves. Although part of the Kingdom of Netherlands, the island's population has developed its own distinct culture, a blend of Afro-Caribbean and Latin American, with a Creole language called Papiamento. Along with its neighbors, Aruba and Bonaire, Curacao sits outside the Caribbean "hurricane zone" and boasts a warm, breezy climate throughout the year. On a Curacao vacation, you can laze, dive, or snorkel on its scenic stretches of sand, visit charming plantations in the interior, or roam the streets of Willemstad, renowned for its distinct architecture.

Bonaire travel guide

Scuba & Snorkeling · Water Sports · Nature & Parks
Thanks to its location outside the Caribbean "hurricane zone," Bonaire benefits from a semi-arid climate with plenty of warm, sunny days. From the island's coastline, a designated national park, you can access vibrant coral reefs that serve as a perfect destination for any snorkeling or diving enthusiast. Windsurfing and kitesurfing are also popular things to do on Bonaire due to the island's steady trade winds, while the arid interior offers numerous wildlife-rich protected areas, interesting rock formations, and scenic landscapes.
