Mid-Winter Vacation in Aruba good for the Soul (and Productivity)!

 

 

mid-winter vacation in ArubaMy wife and I just got back from spending a nice, full week in Aruba and I feel great!  

 

There's nothing quite like a mid-winter vacation in Aruba to get your body recharged.  It's good for the soul... and productivity!  

 

 

I typically work 7 days a week and I don't see a break for days and sometimes weeks at a time.  Having a little down time in the sun really re-energized me.  It makes winter feel a lot shorter and, now that I'm back from vacation, I'm ready to go full speed ahead again!  

 

Aruba was absolutely incredible!  I'm glad we picked this island to visit.  We stayed near Palm Beachgood for the soul and productivity and rented a car.  This allowed us the convenience of going to the popular Palm beach area and also more secluded beaches like Arashi Beach and Baby Beach.  

 

It was 85 degrees everyday, the ocean water was clear and warm, and there are huts and trees to give you shade while sitting out on the beach.  

 

We had a few adventurous days in between the relaxing ones.  We spent time on a speed boat, racedMid-Winter Vacation in Aruba our jet ski's around the waters of Eagle Beach, and took a Jeep one day to do some off-roading and visit the caves and natural pools.  

 

 

 

Aruba

I think I could have easily spent another few weeks in Aruba, but it was time to come home.  

 

We'll be back for sure!

Hi Patricia,  I've been to a lot of places, a lot of islands and Aruba ranks right near the top.  If you can get a good deal on airfare, check it out!

There is nothing like visiting warm islands when the weather here is cold and dark.  I've made 4 trips to Hawaii, three of them in the month of January or February.

Yes, Venuzeula is so close that a lot of the workers in Aruba come from there and take the ferry over.

Sharon, Our first time there was visiting on a cruise... that's what is so great about cruising- you get a sample of places you might want to visit for longer.  St Lucia and Antigua are on that list!
