Aruba from UK winter

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has flown from the UK to Aruba in the winter, Xmas time, and if so, which is the best route / flights etc.

I have discovered that all the major tour operators only fly from May to October.

Also, just inviting some opinions, if we go ahead, is it an arduous journey to take 2 very young children? Or in other words is it worth it?

We have done all of the Caribbean, and looking for somewhere different. Also, one of our party is Dutch.

Any advice welcome, where to stay, All incl? Anything.

Falkirk, United...

Hi Kelly

Remember our winter is arubas high season our summer is their low season and the prices are keener.

I dont think any tour ops fly chartered in the winter your options are tied to scheduled or a cruise ( only one day in aruba is the downside)

Scheduled carriers

KLM, United or multiple carriers . KLM is the best bet, you have to fly via Schipol . You have to be careful with the return jouney as it is usually via Curaco or Bonaire. The Bonaire flight is best as you are on the same plane from Aruba but you are on the ground in Bonaire for approx 1:40. . Long day for a youngster 14 to 17 hrs of flight and connection ( based on scotland as you dep airport) plustravel to airport and wait at airport. Re accomodation palm beach is the high rise area loads to do large chain hotels . Eagle beach a lot quieter stunning beach best bet Amsterdam Manor.
