The beautiful blues of Aruba

Did you know… while Aruba is considered a tropical destination, it’s more desert than rainforest, because it hardly ever rains (yearly precipitation barely exceeds 400 mm)?

And it does not get quite as hot as similar locations – the temperature varies little from 28 degress Celcius, and is moderated by constant trade winds from the Atlantic Ocean.
