What we Love
No Rain, No Fuss - Aruba is located outside of the wedding-dreaded Hurricane belt of the Caribbean. Have no worries about time-of-year as Aruba promises its standard 32 and Sunny all 365 days of the year. In fact, in 2012, Aruba saw just over 7 inches of rain all year long.
All-Inclusive if Needed - Most properties in Aruba do not run on All-Inclusive programs, but you do have the option at most resorts to do so. Great for large groups and destination weddings.
Weddings at Sunset - The sunset in Aruba in second-to-none. Most destination weddings on the island occur during sunset and make for fabulous picture ops.
White Beaches - The white powdery sand of Aruba's beaches are among the best in the world. In fact, Palm Beach, Aruba's renowned beach, was recently voted as one of the best beaches in the world by National Geographic.
The Nightlife - Aruba's nightlife caters to all tastes. The hotel strip in Aruba is surrounded by great shopping, hopping bars, and cuisines of every nature. The downtown core of Palm Beach is always entertaining and you can find it packed with tourists every night of the week. From casinos to clubs, Aruba has got the night lovers covered. Also, when hosting a fairly large group for your Destination Wedding, the nightlife promises to appeal to everyone with the large selection of food, bars, and entertainment.
Sailing & Snorkeling - The catamaran and snorkeling adventure in the crystal blue waters of Aruba are to die for. Spend half a day sailing and exploring underwater life with the ones you love. De Palm Tours arranges the perfect day for the group including all-you-can-drink services, lunch, and a wonderful guided tour of the sea. Tip: This trip is highly recommended for destination wedding groups.
