This tiny island, only 19 by 6 mi, is a splashing sensation when it comes to natural beauty, attracting over a million visitors to its sandy shores each year. Miles of soft, white-sand beaches run like ribbons along its western coast, and the island enjoys daytime temperatures in the high 80s year-round. What makes its capital city, Oranjestad, a highlight of any visit is its dollhouse-style, pastel homes, and colorful architecture. The resorts in Aruba are luxurious, the dining is first-class, and the casinos are a thrill. Extreme sports abound in this tropical haven, from diving and snorkeling to deep-sea fishing and windsurfing. There is a notable Dutch influence in Aruban cuisine that becomes evident in traditional dishes with goat meat, stoba - stew pots filled with vegetables that are locally grown - fish and maize.
