Recently, Kimberley Richardson of the Aruba Tourism Authority had the great pleasure to honor one of Aruba’s loyal and friendly visitors as an Emerald Ambassador of Aruba. The Emerald Ambassador certificate is presented to guests who visit Aruba 35 years and more consecutively.
The honoree was John Patrick Balzarini from USA. Balzarini has been visiting Aruba for 35 years consecutively. The Emerald Ambassador certificate is the highest certificate that we present, and is given to visitors who have been visiting Aruba 35 years or more consecutively. The ceremony was one of importance to us because honoring visitors who have been coming to Aruba for over 35 years is incredibly rare and it was a very memorable moment for all of us.
Balzarini stated that he loves the island very much, especially for its year-round sunny weather, nice sandy beaches and picturesque sunsets, delicious variety of foods, its safety and Aruba’s warm and friendly people who became like family to him.
Richardson together with the representatives of the Holiday Inn Beach Resort & Casino presented the certificate to the honoree, handed over some presents and also thanked him for choosing Aruba as his favorite vacation destination and as his home-away-from-home.q
