Aruba has joined the new trend of inviting visitors to work remotely from their slice of paradise.

The island's 'One Happy Workation' initiative invites American visitors to stay on the island for up to three months.

Aruba has joined Barbados, Anguilla and Bermuda in enticing tourists with the offer of having an extended holiday while working.

According to the island's tourism website, program amenities will include special rates, complimentary WiFi, breakfast, all-inclusive food and beverage options and more.

The workation will also give visitors special discounts and access to special local experiences. 

The program is open to all US travellers with a national ID and the minimum length of stay is one week.

The island's website has a list of all the participating hotels depending on your needs.

From September 24, US travellers from certain States will be required to submit COVID-19 tests prior to arrival and to do a PCR test upon arrival. 

Please check the website for all health requirements before travelling to Aruba.

Aruba currently has 1289 active cases of COVID-19.
