EAGLE BEACH ̶ Recently, Aruba Tourism Authority representative Ms. Kimberley Richardson had the great pleasure in honoring many loyal Aruba visitors with their distinctive certificates. These certificates are a way to say “Masha Danki” for continuously choosing Aruba as a favorite vacation destination. The titles are as following: 10+ years “Distinguished Visitor”, 20+ years “Goodwill Ambassador” and 36+ years “Emerald Ambassador”.
Mr. Robert & Mrs. Margaret Diercks from New York, United States who were honored as Emerald Ambassadors.
The greatest award we provide is the Emerald Ambassador certificate, which is granted to travelers who have visited Aruba continuously for 35 years or more. The ceremony was significant to us because it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate guests who had been coming to Aruba for more than 35 years. The Diercks’ have been visiting Aruba for 40 years consecutively!
This symbolic honorary title is presented on behalf of the Minister of Tourism as a token of appreciation to the guests who visit Aruba between the 10-20-35 and more consecutive year mark.
The honorees were asked what their top reasons for returning to Aruba are. The provided reasons by the honorees were as follows below.
The friendliness of Aruba’s people
Aruba is a beautiful island
Aruba’s year-round sunny weather
Aruba’s nice sandy beaches
Ms. Kimberley Richardson representing the Aruba Tourism Authority, and members of the Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa bestowed the honor certifications to the honorees, presented them with gifts, and also thanked them for choosing Aruba as their favorite vacation destination and as their home-away-from-home.
