Aruba is a Caribbean, island in the Caribbean Sea,
north of Venezuela.
Discovered and claimed for Spain in 1499, Aruba was
acquired by the Dutch in 1636.
The island's economy has been dominated by
three main industries.
A 19th century gold rush was followed by prosperity
brought on by the opening in 1924 of an oil refinery.
The last decades of
the 20th century saw a boom in the tourism industry. Aruba seceded from the
Netherlands Antilles in 1986 and became a separate, autonomous member of the
Kingdom of the Netherlands.
Movement toward full independence was halted at
Aruba's request in 1990.
