Aruba, as the locals say, is one happy island, and visitors will see that whether they are on a catamaran or just checking out the local rum bars.
- This gorgeous island is blessed with sunshine and windy breezes. Make sure to bring a hat that can block the sun and stay on when the wind picks up.
- Water shoes are a good idea if you plan to try wind sailing or kite surfing. Rocky areas might lurk right past the sandy beachheads.
- Bring a waterproof bag or pouch for your devices, and a waterproof GoPro camera. Snorkeling and scuba diving are musts here, and a GoPro is the best way to capture your underwater moments.
