“Aruba to me is….. Paradise!

The first time I came to the Island was on a cruise ship. I fell in love immediately and since then I have been coming every year. I remember when I came for the first time the Concord Hotel stood out at the coast. Later Aruba was inhabited and filled with beautiful hotels. Aruba knew first class businesses and had a different community compared to rest of the Caribbean.

I saw Aruba grew gradually with happiness. I am a plastic art-painting artist and I had the opportunity to showcase my work at the Westin Hotel and at Costa Linda Beach Resort.

I enjoy every single thing about this island. Specially the weather and its people. I am fully satisfied and happy each time that I arrive and stay in this beautiful place. That is why this year for the first time I had the pleasure of bringing my grandchildren to enjoy this beautiful paradise, ARUBA!q
