Distinguished Visitor of Aruba
Tyler Braden from Wisconsin, United States.
Young boy Tyler has been visiting the island with his family since he was only 6 weeks old, and today we mark his 10th consecutive visit to Aruba!
It is extremely pleasant to witness how families all gather together and bring their kids, and in some cases, grandchildren along so they can see why their families fell in love with Aruba in the first place and still yearn to visit the island after all these years.
Ms. Kimberley Richardson representing the Aruba Tourism Authority, and staff members of the Casa Del Mar Beach Resort bestowed the Distinguished Visitor Certification to the honoree, presented him with gifts, and also expressed gratitude to his family for bringing young Tyler along with them to Aruba since he was a baby for so many consecutive years.
Top reasons for returning to Aruba, provided by Tyler were:
- Ocean & sunshine
- The iguanas all around the Casa Del Mar Beach Resort
- The delicious mudslides
- Family fun
- Being able to build sandcastles on the beach
