They wrote to us saying;

“Aruba to me is ….. where I first visited as a travel agent in 1986, instant love!

My job was to learn about the beauty of the island and it’s poeple and it’s properties and to come home to USA and sell vacations to Aruba!

My love and the passion I have for Aruba has sold many other people vacations and it also was instant love for each and everyone of them .

My husband and I have come to Aruba every year since our honeymoon there in 2000, and for our anniversaries since .

Each year, knowing I had my Aruba vacation to look forward to was my best motivator to get through daily life ,working, and cold weather.

It truly is our paradise ,our peace, our everything !!

We have now retired and beyond happy to tell you….

37 years since my first visit, and Aruba to me is ….my dream come true ! My husband and I will now have two longer trips every year to our Paradise, Aruba!”

Thank you for sending us this wonderful message sharing what Aruba means to you with us and our readers!
