Dutch influence still lingers on Aruba as part of the Netherlands' Antilles until independence in 1986. This balmy Caribbean island is a study in contrasts. Its arid interior is dotted with cactus and windswept divi-divi trees while secluded coves and sandy beaches form its coast. Aruba's long and colorful heritage is reflected in its dialect. Called Papiamento, it's a combination of Spanish, French, Portuguese, Dutch, African and English.
Tour the colorful Dutch-colonial buildings that grace this island's capital.

A German freighter sunk during World War II is one of the largest shipwrecks in the Caribbean. See it by boat, semi-sub or snorkeling.
