Snowstorms may be blanketing the East Coast, but right now Aruba is 85 and sunny. With a drier climate than most other Caribbean islands, Aruba is known for its temperate weather year-round. In fact, the island even lies outside the hurricane belt. But that’s not the island’s only draw: 20 percent of the land in Aruba is devoted to national parks.
Tune into Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasting from The Westin Resort & Casino Aruba to find out the island’s natural wonders as well as the best local spots.
