Aruba is a small island in the Caribbean. Its area is only 193 km. The state of Aruba is self-governing and is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

In Aruba come for the beaches with white sand, free sunbeds on the coast, American island culture. There is almost no time to meet our compatriots on the island. Infrequent guest and resident of the European Union. Here everything is "sharpened" under the American tourist.

The very name "Aruba" means "island of shells" in Indian terms. There is a version that the island got its name from the Spaniards who were looking for gold here. That's why they called it "a place where there was gold."

Until the mid-16th century, all the geographical maps of Aruba were marked with one word, "Orua." The expanded name appeared a century later.

Archaeologists claim that the first inhabitants of the island were Arawak Indians. They fished and hunted animals. Their customs and traditions were similar to those of the population of South America. Interestingly, historians have found many rock paintings in the caves of Aruba. But the Arawaks did not use caves for housing. Perhaps for them it was sacred places.

Scientists still argue which of the navigators discovered Aruba. Whether it was Amerigo Vespucci or Alonso de Ojeda. Anyway, but the Spaniards-pioneers noticed that the local population is significantly superior to the Europeans in terms of physical data. That's why Aruba has long been called the "island of giants."

In the process of development of the island, the Spaniards were convinced that there are no deposits of gold and precious stones. So there was another name - "useless island." And when it turned out that the conditions for agriculture here are not quite the best, the Spaniards decided to move the entire population of Aruba to Santo Domingo. There their work was used in the mines, which turned out to be fatal: the Indians just died. And the island was later inhabited by residents of mainland America and colonizers from Europe.

In the 17th century, the Dutch came to the Caribbean islands. Here they set up their naval bases to ensure security against the likely attacks of the Spaniards. They started to use Aruba for the development of agriculture. Soon there were many goats and horses on the island.

On the island lived only Indians, the leadership of which was trusted the commander. At the end of the 18th century, black slaves began to be brought to the island.

The first half of the 19th century is the story of the war over the island between the British and the Spaniards. The island alternately passed into the hands of one or the other. Aruba got its own development during the transition to the Dutch. They were not only able to find gold on the island, but also organized export supplies of Aloe rubber to America and Europe. To this end, aloe was grown en masse. In addition, phosphate production began in Aruba. And the beginning of the 20th century was marked by the development of oil fields.
