Embrace the Beauty of Aruba
By Jessica Nielson
While the Caribbean is acknowledged as a multicolored and traditionally rich region, few travelers are knowledgeable of the outstanding cultural diversity represented in Aruba. Aruba is originally populated by native Arawak Indians and was later on handled by the Europeans. After living under Spanish regime for a couple of years, the island came to be part of the Dutch Kingdom near the end of the colonial period. Though the island maintains its bonds to The Netherlands, more than 40 different races are represented amongst Aruba's population. This surprising mixture of races can be experienced by visitors in everything from art and architecture to cuisine and entertainment. Yet, one of the best ways to embrace the unique culture of Aruba is to join the locals during holiday celebrations - such as the truly Aruban custom of St. John's Day, the classically-influenced Carnival event known as Bacchanal and the Caribbean-inspired traditions of New Year's Day.
Most people who visit Aruba never think about seeing some of the unusual things in the area. The rock formations are spectacular to see. One particular formation is the Casibari Boulders. You can talk walking tours through the boulders and experience the feel of what it was like to live in one of these formations. The ancient site of the Ayo Rock formations is another incredible formation to see. It is fascinating to see and explore. It makes one wonder how these huge and heavy boulders survived all these years. It is a unique display of nature to see.
Hotels welcome your business, and it shows, from the bend-over-backward service to the never-ending array of services they offer. Aruba hotels have stores to take care of your needs and shopping enjoyment; water sports for the on the go vacationer, a variety of international cuisine to please your taste all in an exotic atmosphere, and not to forget local and international entertainment to liven up the night. Hotels are bountiful for all travelers in this small nation, and Planet Holiday has a range of hotels in Aruba at discount rates for you. Hotels change rates at different times during the year and spontaneously to reflect supply and demand, so a "costly" hotel could be more affordable than a "modest" resort during a seasonal window of opportunity.
Well, before you pack all your belongings and book a trip to the island, consider a proper planning first. Planning is very essential to every travel as the more prepared you are, the more successful your Aruba vacations will be. So start planning. How? Start by making a list of everything you need to do prior to your trip. Also consider the time when the things need to be done, and only sign off when everything or something is completed.
There are a lot of booking services out there in the physical and virtual world that can help you book your Aruba vacations. However, when booking your stay, choose only a company that you think is worth trusting. Ask some questions about your service and make sure that everything is properly handled for your ultimate Aruba vacations.
