Aruba Weather in July

Anyone who likes hot days at the beach will enjoy Aruba weather in July.

This southwestern Caribbean island, which lies off the coast of Venezuela, is one of the hottest and most arid destinations in the Caribbean.

The fact that it is arid with low monthly rainfall makes it a popular vacation spot for people who want to avoid the risk of rain ruining a vacation.

The combination of warm temperatures and low rainfall make July a popular month for visitors. Statistics from the Caribbean Tourism Organization show that July was the fourth most popular month for visiting Aruba in 2014 after December, August and November.

Temperatures


Aruba is one of the few destinations to see average high temperatures reach about 90 degrees Fahrenheit or 32 degrees Celsius during the summer. July is no exception.

The daily minimum temperature in July is among the highest in the Caribbean as well with an average of 79.5 degrees Fahrenheit or 26.4 degrees Celsius.

The average seawater temperature is balmy at 81.7 degrees Fahrenheit or 27.6 degrees Celsius.

Rainfall


Aruba is popular with tourists because of its low average rainfall throughout most of the year.

It lies at the edge of the Caribbean hurricane belt, so it experiences fewer effects from hurricanes and tropical storms than most destinations.

Outside of the hurricane season, which runs from June through November, Aruba experiences low levels of rain. On average it has about one inch or less from January through September.

Aruba averages about 1.2 inches of rain in July, according to the Meteorological Department of Curacao. The typical July has rain on about five days during the month.

The low levels of rain don’t mean a lack of clouds. The average cloud cover is 47.9 percent of the total sky compared to an average of less than 40 percent from January through March.

July also has some of the strongest winds of the year on an island known for strong trade winds.
