Erek the penguin loves Aruba

Kimberley Richardson of the Aruba Tourism Authority had the great pleasure to honor Aruba’s loyal and friendly visitors as Goodwill Ambassadors of Aruba. The Goodwill Ambassador certificate is presented on behalf of the Minister of Tourism, as a token of appreciation to the guests who visit Aruba 20 years and more consecutively.

The honorees were couple Vincent & Lori Confreda from Rhode Island, USA. This couple have been traveling with their travel body named Erek the penguin for years. Erek enjoys long walks on the beach and sipping cocktails at the Renaissance Island with his flamingo friends.

Family Confreda stated that they love 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 them.

Richardson together with the representatives of Renaissance Resort & Casino presented the certificate to the honorees, handed over some presents and also thanked them for choosing Aruba as their favorite vacation destination and as their home-away-from-home.
