An introduction to the Caribbean
By Ricardo Freire
Aruba is the Caribbean made easy. The small island, which only recently gained its independence from Holland, has practically no faults. Hurricanes stay away, you can communicate in a Portuguese-Spanish mix, there is no need to exchange money to the local currency – even cash withdrawals at ATMs can be made in dollars.
Palm Beach, the beach where most vacation package hotels are located, is complete with the fine white sands and baby blue ocean of your dreams. Everything is made to American standards, but you don’t need a visa – how great is that!?
Come enjoy the sun, the beach, the amenities at your super-hotel (a little casino action, maybe…) and go on a few tours. Vacations are for relaxing, remember? Take it easy!
