When it comes to weather, Aruba truly enjoys near-perfect weather in all seasons. The island is located outside of the Hurricane Belt, keeping it far away from any storms. On occasion, there may be some effects from larger storms, but it’s usually just some short rain showers. Most rainfall happens between October and January in Aruba — but even on days with some rain, there’s also ample sunshine.
When to Visit Aruba
If traveling during the high season of mid-December through mid-April, know that the island tends to be more crowded since many people are looking to escape the cold. Over these months, hotel rooms go quickly and prices are higher, so be sure to book well in advance. Low season starts in mid-April and lasts until December. Remember, Aruba has gorgeous weather year-round, so going in the off-season can afford you a similar experience with fewer crowds and lower fares.
You could also plan your trip around one of Aruba’s many festivals. There are several music festivals that would be fun for couples who are into that scene. Carnival, which takes place between January and March, is another popular time to visit Aruba. Carnival season brings weeks of festivities, parades, contests, music, and dancing.
