WHEN TO GO
If you had to score Aruba’s weather it’d get a perfect 10/10. This island just off the South American coast has year-round sunshine and temperatures that sit around the 28°C mark, and don’t drop below 24°C. Trade winds help keep things cool, and between January and March they provide top-notch windsurfing conditions. Aruba’s outside the Caribbean’s hurricane belt, too, so storms are extremely rare. The island is spot on for diving all year round, too, thanks to ultra-clear waters.
