“Aruba, Jamaica, ooooh I wanna take ya to Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama, Key Largo, Montego, baby why don’t we go.”
Ladies and gents, drumroll please….. I’m heading out to Aruba! “Aruba, Jamaica, oooohhh I wanna take ya!” In case you couldn’t tell, I’m over the moon about my upcoming trip. And why yes, Kokomo by Beach Boys HAS been playing on repeat all morning! I’m not sure if I’ll be able to make that “beach bod,” but I’m not too worried as the one piece swimsuit movement is coming back and I plan to fully support them, financially. Thank you swimsuit gods.
For those of you who have been reading my little ol’ blog for some time (thank you, as always), you might think, “hold on, wait, but you go to Cancun every summer.” Yes, you can read about it here, here and here. But this year we thought we’d try something new by visiting Aruba.
So a little info about Aruba for you. It’s actually a Dutch island in the Caribbean just 15 miles north of Venezuela. Unlike other islands in the Caribbean, Aruba sits right below the hurricane belt. This means they are pretty dry and have the most sunny days out of all the islands in the Caribbean. I’m excited to explore the beaches and the National Parks in Aruba. It’s like two vacations in one!
Have you been to Aruba? I’d love to get your tips. What did you do there? What did you see? And most importantly, what are some good spots to eat?
Have a great day!
