Tucked away in the far southeast corner of the Caribbean Sea is an island known as Aruba. It is so far south in fact that it is nearly a stone’s throw from Venezuela. Over the years several timeshare resorts have established themselves as the best in Aruba. Some have “famous” names, and some don’t. What they do have in common is a heavenly location, superb service, and quality for even the most demanding traveler.
