The southern Caribbean hotspot has been one of the most popular destinations in the region since the onset of the pandemic, having nimbly handled its tourism protocols and cultivated an impressively quick tourism recovery. Today, Aruba arrivals are nearing record-breaking totals, and that’s likely to continue into 2023.

Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort This is the best resort in Aruba, and there isn’t much of a competition. Ewald Biemans’ jewel on stunning Eagle Beach isn’t just a breathtakingly good resort, it’s one of the Caribbean’s model resorts for sustainability. The service, beginning with the iPad check-in, is fabulous, the food (and its commitment to dietary-diverse travelers) is outstanding, and the adults-only experience is sublime.
