Aruba August weather

I posted earlier about Bermuda and got a suggestion to check out Aruba. My husband and I are looking for a beach vacation to celebrate our 5th anniversary. Is Aruba out of the hurricane belt? Will it be safe to travel there at that time of year? Even if there aren't hurricanes is the chance good that the weather will be rainy? Any insight appreciated. Thanks

Laura, Aruba is out of the hurricane belt. It has an average of 17 inches of annual rainfall, which doesn't add up to much at all. That's about one-third of say, the Bahamas.

The temps are fairly steady throughout the year due to the close proximity to the equator. It's always warm and very arid.

Laura,

I went to Aruba 3 yrs ago at the end of August. It was beautiful. It showered a bit every day in the afternoon, but very briefly (10-20 minutes). (this is with most islands, but Aruba is known to be the driest). There was such a nice breeze from the ocean, that I didn't think it was extremely hot. I stayed at the Divi resort.

I went to Aruba last August for the guaranteed good weather and it was perfect! Maybe a couple of very brief afternoon showers, but best place to avoid hurricane belt. The rates are usually lower in summer months also. Have a wonderful time where ever you go!
