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.

January-March

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, with lows in the mid-70s and highs in the mid-80s, and very little rain.

Key Events:

April-August

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 the hurricane belt. Temperatures are slightly higher (it could reach the 90s by the peak of summer), but the dry, desert climate and frequent high winds will keep the stickiness to a minimum.

Key Events:

 
September-December

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. These months see the most precipitation of the year, but most days are rainfall-free.
