Aruba is a tiny Dutch Caribbean island off the coast, located approximately 1,600 kilometers (990 mi) west of the main portion of the Lesser Antilles, and 29 kilometers (18 mi) north of the coast of Venezuela. Aruba’s dry, sunny weather, blond beaches and gentle surf and constant trade winds that bring cool breezes make it a tourist Mecca. The constant breeze causes the divi-divi trees to slope southwesterly.
European influence shows in the island’s architecture, which features Dutch gables painted in tropical pastels. It’s also evident in language, with English, Dutch and Spanish spoken alongside the local Papiamento language.
Arub is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It measures 32 kilometers (20 mi) long from its northwestern to its southeastern end, and is 10 kilometers (6 mi) across at its widest point. Together with Bonaire and Curaçao, Aruba forms a group of islands referred to as the ABC islands. Collectively, Aruba and the other Dutch islands in the Caribbean are often called the Dutch Caribbean.
Aruba, along with the Netherlands, Curaçao and Sint Maarten form the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The citizens of these countries are all Dutch nationals. Aruba’s capital is Oranjestad.
