Aruba is world-renowned for its white, sandy beaches on the western and southern coasts of the island where most tourist development has taken place. The northern and eastern coasts, lacking this protection, have for the most part been left in their natural state, untouched by human hands. Aruba has many wonderful attractions available to Aureus students.

An autonomous region within the Netherlands, Aruba is a sparkling Southern Caribbean island only fifteen miles off the coast of Venezuela. Just nineteen miles long and six miles across at its widest point, the island has a total land area of 70 square miles. This magical island is alive with beautiful scenery, friendly people and surprising natural wonders to explore, making it the ideal location for the Aureus University modern, high-tech campus.

WEATHER: Aruba enjoys a dry and sunny climate which is kept pleasant and temperate year-round due to the cooling effects of the trade winds. The average annual temperature is 83 degrees Fahrenheit (27 Celsius), and rainfall amounts to just 17 inches a year, most of which occurs during the months of October and November.

Aruba is located well below the hurricane belt and has been spared the devastating effects of storms that regularly affect the Caribbean medical schools located farther north.
