Visitors will find that Aruba's average weather is much like other climates in the southern Caribbean with consistent and predictable temperatures throughout the year.

The island also is known for being one of the driest destinations in the Caribbean. It is a good choice for beach lovers who like more sun and less rain.

Aruba Temperatures

The average monthly high temperature is 89 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the Meteorological Department of Aruba. This monthly average varies by only a few degrees each month.

Most of the heat will be felt in the arid interior of the island, while the shores have the benefit of the trade winds.

But the beaches often become quite hot during the afternoons in the summer. Anyone walking around in bare feet may find that the sand is painful to the touch.

Jacket weather is rare. The average monthly low temperature is 78 degrees. This average also varies by only 2 degrees each month. The monthly low usually occurs at night.

The average seawater temperature is 81 degrees, making Aruba a comfortable place to swim even in the winter. The coolest seawater months are December through March when the temperature averages 76 degrees.

Aruba Rainy Season

Aruba doesn't have much of a rainy season because it is one of the most arid destinations in the Caribbean.

It lies just outside of the Caribbean hurricane belt. It does experience some spikes in rain when a hurricane passes through the region. But spikes in rain are brief.

Visitors are more likely to see an increase in cloud cover from regional hurricanes and tropical storms.

Rainfall for this dry island is almost non-existent for most of the year. It averages about 1 inch per month every month except for October through December, when rainfall averages 3 inches a month.

Rainfall increases in the late fall and early winter because of the annual Caribbean hurricane season. But Aruba is well known for missing the worst of it, although there are no guarantees.
