Fly to Aruba This Summer

Find cheap airfare to Aruba, “One Happy Island.” This, the official motto of Aruba, is plastered on each taxi’s license plate. Surely Arubans are happy to see visitors: Aruba’s economy is fueled by tourists’ dollars, and much of the island is heavily developed for them, perhaps even more so than neighboring islands Bonaire and Curacao (the three together make up what’s known as the ABC chain of islands in this deepest part of the Southern Caribbean). Most Arubans speak English and accept U.S. currency.

Arubans also speak Spanish, Dutch and Papiamento — a language native to the ABC islands. If someone says, “Bon Bini,” they are welcoming you to Aruba.

The island has a rich layered heritage. The first people to inhabit Aruba were a nation of Arawak Indians (the name Aruba seems to have derived from the Arawak Indian word oibubai, which means guide). In 1499, the Spanish explorer Alonso de Ojeda laid claim to the territory for Queen Isabella. Nearly 200 years later, the Dutch captured the islands of Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire from the Spanish, and much of that heritage can be seen in Aruba’s pastel Old World architecture.
