If you look at nothing else on this page, these are the resources that you should know about. I find myself recommending these resources again and again.


Community Tools

The Official Forums of Aruba – is the official website of the Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA) and their message boards are an invaluable resource.  The atmosphere is very friendly, community is extremely helpful and the information available really is a game-changer.

Vacation Countdown Clock – If you want one of those vacation countdown clocks you see at the various forums around the web check out tickerfactory.


Google Flights – Choose a destination and a date and this powerful search engine will tell you which flights suit your needs.  Use Google Flights’ vast filtering options to drill down even further until you find the perfect flight to Aruba.


VRBO – When I visit Aruba I typically rent a private residence rather than a hotel or resort.  Vacation rentals by owner (VRBO) is where I go to secure my rentals. Searching their extensive inventory for a property is as easy as can be and since I make certain to use the security measures the website has in place I have found VRBO to be exceptionally safe.
