Aruba is known for many things: a wonderfully warm and sunny climate, where the people match the weather; an island of contrasts, where white beaches and luxurious resorts coexist with rugged cliffs and desert goats; a laid-back style, complemented by the amazing efficiency of The Aruba Meetings & Incentives Partnership, an organization of professionals determined and dedicated to maximizing the Aruba Experience for planners and attendees alike.
