Distance from Baltimore: 1,895 miles, about a 6 ½ hour flight (with stop)
Why it's hot: The beaches are white and pristine, the water is a crisp blue-green and the skies are sunny and blue. Explore Arikok National Park, with its picturesque geological formations, native wildlife and miles of fantastic hiking trails. Discover the fascinating depths of the island's extensive caves, including the Huliba Cave known as the "Tunnel of Love" for its heart-shaped opening. When it's time to cool off, guests of the Hyatt Regency Aruba, above, receive complimentary popsicles around the pool in the afternoons.
Don't miss: The Butterfly Farm in Oranjestad, featuring more than 30 species of butterflies.
