What's the Temperature Like in Aruba in May


The temperature is definitely heating up in May, which happens to be the first of the summer months. Aruba maintains a steady heat from here on in, which lasts right until the end of the summer in October.

Daily average temperatures of 29°C carry a potential high of 31°C, with lows only going down as far as 26°C. In other words, it's hot! This part of the Americas benefits from a sea position which means that weather patterns can be very easy to predict, including the winds which may buffer certain areas of the coast. Watch out for these when you are swimming in the ocean, which sees an average temperature of 28°C and is therefore very pleasant for a dip at any time of day. They can create a strong, rough tide, but there are plenty of secluded bays where you should be able to enjoy the sea even during times of higher winds. With long, sunny days, if you happen to miss out in the morning, you can always try again in the afternoon!


As for rainfall, there is only a very small amount to be found this month. 20mm will come down, on average and it will only cover 3 days. This means that even if you come for a three-week holiday during this month, you might be able to get away with a totally dry holiday. This is fantastic news for those who want to relax in the sun as much as possible! Keep an eye on the weather forecast from time to time and you should be able to easily avoid any brief showers which do come down, chance of rain is 7% in Arasji, so very low!

Hit the Beach

Druif Beach

Once you see the white sands and dip your toe in the 28°C water, you will not be able to resist spending a day at the beach.

There are shaded picnic areas, huts, and lots of water sports for you to take part in. You may also see turtle nests this is the favoured spot for the animals to lay their eggs.
