How Has the Weather Been in Aruba? Typically Ordinary

There have been passing rain showers. Far from anything to ruin a vacation.

Rain in Aruba falls mainly over night and early in the morning. That is not to say you will not have a passing shower during the day however they are usually brief and generally last 10-20 minutes. We hardly ever leave the beach during a shower taking cover under a beach palapa or going into the ocean.

Jenny & Mateusz exchange vows at sunset

PALM BEACH - Jenny Giordano and Mateusz Kipczak were married on Palm Beach just before the sun gently set into the Caribbean Sea. Family and friends witnessed the exchange of rings and vows as Jenny and Mateusz united in matrimony with their emotional toes-in-the-sand ceremony.

Jenny went to Florence a year and a half ago to work and met Mateusz by chance.  It was love at first sight for both of them! Mateusz proposed to Jenny near Ponte Vecchio a year to the day of having met her there. Jenny already had it in her heart for years to exchange her vows in Aruba - a place that she has been visiting over the past thirteen years.

Romance in Aruba With Your Soulmate

Aruba Bound
1. A bottle of Verve Cliquot, only the best for this occasion, at sunset from the California Lighthouse or anywhere else along the beaches of the west side of Aruba.

2. Dinner on the beach at the Flying Fishbone or Passions at the Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort or on the terrace at the Sunset Grille at the Radisson- here, for more privacy, make sure you request the table on the northwest corner of the terrace. Sunset can be beautiful at any of these locations, we prefer after dark with the tradewinds rustling through the palm trees and moon and stars overhead. But sunset from any of these locations, Passions especially, is nice as well.
