Aruba Weather November Averages, Aruba
What's the Weather Like in Aruba in November
The weather in Aruba is never very cold, but there is a winter season of sorts. This starts in November, but don't panic you will still see a lot of sunshine at this time of year, and it is consistent from Noord in the north to Butucu in the south. In fact, the average daily temperature is still as high as 28°C, which makes the summer in certain other countries look pretty cold!
For the first time since April, the weather now starts to drop, by just 1 degree, so that the average daily high is 30°C as opposed to 31°C. The average lows stay the same as they were in October, however, at 26°C. This means that the temperature drop is very small, and may be just about imperceptible to anyone who is visiting.
If you are visiting at this time of year, however, there is one thing that you have to look out for. This is the wettest month of the whole year. 90mm of rain will come down throughout the month, split between 11 days. This is a third of the days available, but think about that statistically it actually means that you still have a good chance of not seeing any rain at all even if you stay for 3 weeks. This is a pretty good bet to take, and it can be quite refreshing to get some cool rain when the weather is hot. As an illustration of this, the average sea temperature is still high at 29°C, so you can certainly go swimming when the weather is fine and expect to have a very enjoyable experience. Still, all you have to do is keep an eye on the weather forecast and you should be fine no matter what happens.
Hotels in Aruba in November
If you want to save money or experience something a little bit off the beaten path, November is the perfect time to do it. Instead of going for one of the major resorts, why not stay at a bed and breakfast like the Arubiana Inn? There are just 18 air conditioned rooms within this complex, all of which include a small fridge, kettle, microwave, and dinner set so that you can be self-sufficient if you wish.
Aruba Surfside Marina
You could also try the Aruba Surfside Marina, which is perfect for a romantic retreat. It is positioned right on the oceanfront, with a very small clientele there are just 3 studio suites, one single occupancy suite, a grand suite. Each of them has views across the ocean, and you will find breakfast is provided for you.
Buffam's Tropical Haven
Buffam's Tropical Haven is another inexpensive alternative for those who like peace and quiet in private surroundings. You are close to the action in terms of the supermarkets, restaurants, and beaches nearby but you are also in the heart of an authentic Aruban neighbourhood.
Hit the Beach
With the average sea temperature peaking this month at 29°C, you would be missing out if you did not head to the beach. Eagle Beach is one of the best options available on the island, with soft white sand stretching in either direction. Lots of watersports take place here, and there is always something going on for your entertainment.
De Palm Island
You could also try heading to De Palm Island, although you will need to book a place as it is actually an all-inclusive private island. You can spend just a day there if you wish to, or you could even plan to spend your entire stay at the hotel on the island.
Bars and Restaurants
El Gaucho Argentine Grill
If you fancy some South American steakhouse and barbecued dishes, make sure that you check out the El Gaucho Argentine Grill. It is located inside a colonial townhouse, and was the first Argentine style restaurant to ever open on the island.
Bugaloe Beach Bar & Grill
For something a bit more laid back, you could try the Bugaloe Beach Bar & Grill. Situated on a pier out over the water, this is a fun filled establishment which aims to provide a fantastic experience for everyone who visits. You can serve yourself from a buffet, enjoy some dancing in the evenings, or simply sit in the daytime and look out over the water.
Daniel's Steak and Chop
Then there is Daniel's Steak and Chop, where you will find the best quality steak grilled in front of you on a wood-burning grill. The open kitchen is fascinating, and you can also find lots of fabulous seafood dishes which reflect local flavours. Service is kept to a high level here, in keeping with the interests of the owners.
