You’ve been dreaming of a Caribbean vacation all winter and now that it’s summer you have a chance to travel there. But June to November is hurricane season in most of the Caribbean. So what do you do?
Fear not, your summer travel plans can in fact include the Caribbean. The island of Aruba sits outside the hurricane belt and provides a haven from tropical storms in other parts of the Caribbean. Accommodation on the island can be quite pricey in winter but during the summer you can take advantage of lower prices.
If you visit Aruba on Memorial Day weekend, you can catch the 5-day Soul Beach Music Festival. In its thirteenth year, the festival (May 22nd to 27th this year) features concerts by top artists, comedy shows, beach parties and late-night club parties. In mid-June Aruba celebrates St. John’s Day, a harvest festival featuring traditional music and dance. The celebration will take place on June 24th.
Average high temperatures: 90°F (32.2°C ) in June and 90°F (32.2°C) in July and 91°F (32.8°C) in August
Nearest airport: Queen Beatrix International Airport
