Do You Have Everything You Need To Play Golf?

When organizing your Golf experience in Aruba

The tropical climate of Aruba is characterized by good weather almost all year round, from constant temperatures that average around 30 ° C and from the trade winds that mitigate the heat invariably blowing from the east. Precisely for this reason the west coasts are the most protected.

Precipitation is scarce and concentrated with minimum values in the period between October and early January with about 6-7 cm and 10 days of rain per month, with short duration thunderstorms. Hurricanes in the Caribbean do not cross Aruba, except in the form of a tropical storm in very rare cases, and this is a great advantage for the island which therefore remains foreign to the risk of the disasters they cause.

Sea water has a temperature of around 27 ° C in the coldest month of February and 30 ° C in the hottest month of October, therefore ideal for baths at any time of the year.

The best time to organize your Golf experience in Aruba is very wide and goes from February to September, when daytime temperatures are around 31 ° C and rainfall is limited to 1-2 cm of rain per month. A Golf tour in Aruba can also be done from October to January, the rapid passing disturbances will not detract from the beauty of the island and the pleasant temperatures of the winter in the tropics.

What to Eat in Aruba

The marvelous nature of Aruba produces not only panoramas and dreamlike atmospheres but also excellent ingredients for tasty typical dishes: in Aruba, what to eat is certainly not a problem that will have to touch even the most discerning palates.
The cuisine of Aruba is in fact a mix of flavors that derive from different traditions but now beautifully blended, given the influences coming from other Caribbean islands, from Holland and South America.
The typical dishes of Aruba are therefore naturally based on fish but there is no lack of meat-based inspirations, all enriched with locally grown vegetables.

The most common fish in the local cuisine are wahoo, dentex, lampuga and barracuda.
The typical dish of Aruba of Creole tradition is called Pisca hasa crioyo and is prepared with slices of bread, a sauce made with onion, tomato, peas and garlic. Another specialty with Pisca hasa crioyo found in all the menus is Keri-keri, cooked as a classic fillet boiled in salted water, then cut into pieces and sautéed in a pan with butter, tomato, onion, celery, basil , peas and spices.
If instead meat is preferred, then you can delight with Stoba, a meat stew: stoba meat is beef based, while cabrito stoba is based on goat meat. In both cases, we will proceed to cook everything with potatoes, onion, garlic and chilli with a tomato-based sauce.

Two of the most popular dishes when eating in Aruba: Pan Bati (fried bread) and Funchi, a kind of polenta.
There are many pumpkin specialties: the Pampuna llena is a pumpkin filled with chopped pumpkin, boiled eggs, onions and tomato. La Pampuna Stoba is instead cooked pumpkin with meat, tomatoes and sweet potatoes. Then you can taste the Lsopi di pampuna (pumpkin soup) with beef, vegetables in broth and pieces of pumpkin and potatoes that are previously mixed and blended with cream and butter.

As for the typical sweets of Aruba, the bolo is the classic cake, offered in several variations (with cashew nuts, chocolate, egg and prunes) or there is the Ponche Crema, served especially at Christmas or for the most important holidays : is a sweet drink with egg yolks, cream, rum and spices.
Finally, there is an ingredient that lends itself to various uses in the kitchen: papaya.
It can be eaten instead of fruit or dessert but it is advisable to taste batido, a papaya smoothie with vanilla, which can be enriched with other fruits such as pineapple or orange.
