Recently, Aruba Tourism Authority representative Marouska Heyliger 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”.
The honorees were Tomi and Pirita Karhu from Texas who were honored as Distinguished Visitors and Rita and Pasco Santilli from Rhode Island who were honored as Goodwill Ambassadors at their home away from home, who also celebrated the engagement of a family member on our Island.
The 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 consecutive years each title carries.
The couple loves coming to the island for its warm weather, beautiful beaches and the Island’s friendly people.
Heyliger together with the representatives of Divi Phoenix Resort presented the certificates to the honorees and thanked them for choosing Aruba as their favorite vacation destination and as their home-away-from-home.
