I love the beach so just about any place that combines water and sand gets my attention. Not every one of them turns out to be worth a visit but Aruba is. Located in the Caribbean, Aruba boasts a variety of geographical features and therefore opportunities for a wide range of activities. there's so much to do. That's why it's so popular as a family vacation spot and why I find it attractive.
Of course there’s soft sandy beaches beside calm blue waters and I can take a leisurely stroll, go for a horseback ride or simply lounge. If I get a little more ambitious, Aruba’s waves and winds create perfect conditions for water sports like windsurfing, kite-surfing and sailing, or I could rev it up and rent a jet-ski or wave runner. Below the surface there’s coral formations and submerged wrecks just waiting to be discovered while snorkeling.
Nearby, however, Arikok National Park set on the wild windward coast features a rugged interior and change of pace. I can tour it from an air-conditioned coach or go on a Jeep safari, or hike or bike the 20 miles of trails. This side of Aruba is a bit more secluded because the rough surf means swimming isn’t recommended. That same wave action, however, has carved beautiful coves and inlets out of the limestone.
Much as I love my Gulf Coast home I enjoy visiting other seaside locations. Because of the recreational options offered by its unique and varied terrain, Aruba travel calls to me for my next vacation.
