is it warm enough in Aruba in Jan/Feb to swim?

Hi all,
trying to plan family trip with 2 young kids for Jan or early Feb.
Considering Aruba, T&C or Grand Cayman, possible St. Johns.
Is it warm enough to swim in the ocean and pool in Aruba that time of year?
Thanks so much!

Absolutely yes for every place but the Turks & Caicos. I've always found the water that far north a little chilly for my taste.

Even in late March/April the water can still feel chilly to me in the Bahamas, so it's really up to you. A lot of people disagree with me, and the difference in temperatures between there and the U.S. in the winter may make the difference moot. It's obviously warmer and more comfortable there, especially during the day. But it's always warm in the Caribbean, and Aruba is further south than any of the other islands you mention, and they're plenty warm in winter.
