To me, the first thing a couple should decide upon when beginning the narrowing down of their honeymoon locale is whether they’re going to take an explore-all-of-Europe kind of trip, or a lay-face-down-on-the-beach kind of trip.

Once you’ve decided on that—let’s say, for the sake of this post, it’s the latter—then you’ve got to figure out which region of the world’s beaches you wish to lay upon (Mexico? Indonesia?), and then you’ve got to pick a country or an island. It’s all worth it, no doubt, but unless you have both had a dream destination in mind your whole lives, it won’t necessarily be as easy as a clicking BOOK! on the computer.

They call Aruba, a 70-square-mile strip of Caribbean paradise, “one happy island”—and not just because of its lively spirit and friendly, welcoming people. This Dutch island’s spectacular white-sand beaches, shimmering teal water and opportunities for fun and adventure will make you and your to-be very, very happy.

It’s no exaggeration to say the sun is always shining in Aruba. The island’s immaculate weather, with an average temperature of 82 degrees, heavenly cooling trade winds and virtually no rainy days, is the perfect backdrop for your post-nuptial bliss. The most popular strip is Palm Beach, on the western side of the island—and that’s where you’ll find the beachfront Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa & Casino. The Hyatt sits on 12 magnificent acres, an oasis where you can be a beach bum or an explorer, depending on your mood.

They say that once you visit Aruba, you always return. Why not start that tradition with the most romantic trip of your life—your honeymoon?
