Best Times to Visit Aruba
The best time to visit Aruba is from April to August — a huge window of time when the island's high prices take a holiday. And since the island sits well outside the hurricane belt, there's very little threat of tropical storms at this time. January to March features pleasant weather, but the room prices can soar. You can also find discounts if you travel in the early fall. Whenever you visit, keep in mind Aruba is prone to high trade winds, which makes for a great experience for windsurfers.

The bad news: You could pay as much as $900 a night to stay in some of the ritziest hotels along Palm and Eagle Beach. The good news: If you begin your search several months to a full year in advance, you could find something a lot more reasonable. Temperatures are steady in the mid-70s to mid-80s, and there's very little rain.
This offseason in Aruba is a great time to get a room deal. Plus, Aruba's southernly position in the Caribbean Sea puts it outside hurricane belt. Temperatures are slightly higher (it could reach the high 80s by the peak of summer), but the dry climate and frequent high winds will keep the stickiness to a minimum.
If you're planning a visit for this time of year, try to get a room during the first few months before winter travelers arrive. September is also the month where Aruba's notorious trade winds die down.
