The port of Oranjestad is located on the island of Aruba, an independent state that is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Aruba is located about 30 km off the coast of Venezuela. This island is part of the formation of islands called ABC (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao).
The Spanish explorer Alonso de Ojeda claimed the island on behalf of Spain in 1499. The Dutch then conquered the islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao 200 years later. You can still see the Dutch influence in architecture.
