When searching for a Caribbean vacation, Aruba may not be the first place that comes to mind. But this tiny island in the Dutch Caribbean — just 20 miles long and 6 across — is as stunning as many of its rivals in the Greater Antilles. And depending on when you look, you can find a number of excellent deals to get you there. Here are our tips for finding cheap Aruba vacation packages to fit your budget.

Consider all your accommodations options

The more flexible you can be about the type of property you stay in, the more likely you'll be to find a good mix of cheap vacation packages. All-inclusives, with their endless meals, drinks and activities, are certainly tempting, but total vacation package costs will be much lower if your package simply includes airfare and a hotel stay.

Go later in the year

Did you know summer and fall are perfect times to take an Aruba vacation? This has more to do with pricing than with temperatures — Aruba's weather is consistently warm and sunny, but prices shoot up in the winter months, when North Americans make the trek here to escape the winter blues. Hotels and airlines simply take advantage of the increased interest and rates on rooms and flights skyrocket.

Shorten your trip duration

It goes without saying that shorter trips cost less than longer trips, but you'll have to find that perfect sweet spot. How many days will be enough to relax, but will not cost an arm and a leg? Most budget deal sites focus on 3- to 5-night packages, so within this restriction you'll find many options for cheap Aruba vacation packages.

These Florida Towns Will Remind You of the Caribbean

For most, a beach vacation on a Caribbean island is a no-brainer. There's nothing quite as strong as the allure of palm trees, aquamarine water and colorful architecture — not to mention a more relaxed pace of life. But before you commit to a destination in the West Indies (and the long trek that invariably comes with it), consider these easy-to-reach Florida escapes with a host of Caribbean-inspired characteristics, from gin-clear waters to brightly colored façades.
