(NAPSI)—Many Americans have a warm spot in their hearts for a warm spot on the map—the Caribbean island of Aruba—especially during wintertime.

One reason: the enchanting festivities, including Saint Nicolas Day on Dec. 5, when children line the harbor for the ceremonious arrival of “Sinterklaas.” On Dec. 27, Aruba’s biggest traditional musical event, the Dande Festival, has dozens of singers and musical groups present their original works to brighten the new year with blessings, goodwill and prosperity. Then, on Jan. 1, hundreds gather on the beach at noon to take the New Year’s Plunge.

Beyond the beaches, adrenaline junkies can discover an island full of invigorating activities. For example, there’s catamaran sailing, snorkeling, SNUBA and scuba diving, rides in air-conditioned submarines and stand-up paddle boarding, which has been described as “like walking on water.”

Up in the air, there’s windsurfing and kite surfing, while on land, adventure seekers can explore via ATV, UTV, Jeep, horse, bicycle or on foot.
