A historic New England city, Boston is the capital of Massachusetts and its largest metropolis. Continuously occupied since 1630, Boston has contributed revolutionaries, government leaders and important early American events like the Boston Tea Party to the formative tapestry of the United States. In modern times, the Boston area features several prestigious colleges, including Harvard, Tufts, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston College, Boston University and Northeastern University.
Boston is served by Logan International Airport, located in the eastern portion of the city. Logan is the largest airport in New England and one of the top 20 busiest airports in the United States. JetBlue Airways offers daily nonstop service from Boston to Aruba. In addition, Delta, American Airlines, US Airways and United Airlines all offer connecting services to travelers flying from Boston to Aruba.
Several mass transportation options help travelers reach Logan International Airport. In fact, Logan has been called one of the easiest airports to reach in America. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) operates train, bus and water shuttle services for travelers from various areas of Boston to Logan. Many taxi, shuttle and limousine companies also serve the Boston area. For travelers wishing to drive to and park at the airport, a central parking garage connects to each of the four terminals. Smaller parking lots are available at several of the individual terminals. Many private, paid parking lots also ring the airport perimeter and offer short- and long-term parking.
Part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Aruba is located off the northern coast of Venezuela, close to the Dutch island of Curacao. Only 69 square miles in size, three quarters of Aruba's economy is fueled by tourists, predominantly from the United States and South America. The popularity of Aruba as a tourist destination has led to the island experiencing one of the highest standards of living among Caribbean nations.
Travelers to Aruba arrive at Queen Beatrix International Airport near the island capital of Oranjestad. Government-owned Arubus operates public bus transportation from the airport and throughout the island nearly around the clock and 365 days per year. Many local hotels also operate van services for airport travelers.
Aruba enjoys favorable weather throughout the year. Located outside of the Caribbean hurricane belt, the island is rarely affected by severe storms. Average temperatures range from 76 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit with very little fluctuation throughout the year. With only 15 inches of rain or less per year, Aruba's fairly dry "rainy" season extends from October through December.
Tourists enjoy the many miles of pristine beaches that ring the island of Aruba, along with warm ocean water and ample opportunities to engage in a variety of water sports, including boating, snorkeling, scuba diving and parasailing. The laid-back culture influenced by the Netherlands and South America makes Aruba a desirable destination for a low-key and relaxing vacation.
