    here's what i found on the interent:

    In Aruba the newspapers almost never publish a weather report. They don't need to. Around here, "sunny and warm" is not news. With an average rainfall of less than 20 inches a year, an average daytime temperature of 82¡ã Fahrenheit (27¡ã Celsius), a location completely outside the hurricane belt, and the constant cooling influence of the trade winds, Aruba is one of the most temperate islands in the Caribbean. And just as comfortable in July as it is in January.

    The difference between median day and night temperatures, and between summer and winter temperatures, is just 3.6? The rainfall occurs mainly in short showers during November and December.

    Aruba's weather in a word -- perfect.

    Weather can't be forecast more than a week or so in advance, but weather averages are good indicators of what to expect any month.

    I think it falls into a low zone because its located near the equator and that's why the weather is constantly hot all year long. Does this sound correct.

    Aruba is in a tropical zone, between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator. See http://www.mapsofworld.com/lat_long/aruba-lat-long.html

    You are on the right track, Brooke.
