Im trying to find a reputable steel band who will come to the docks when our cruise ship docks next March 25th 2014 and play Happy Brithday to a very special person. Its his 70th and 9 of us are all his guests on the cruise. Any ideas please?
ever had run in with dangerous fish? Baby or Eagle or Arashi? Ever seen undertow or rip tide?
Been twice and bought a time share, so just curious.
Big waves at eagle last January carried me into shore maybe 15-20 feet. Dumped me on the sand, then the next one came along and I thought I was a gonner but then scurried up the sand and all was fine,
Also heard there are pythons out in the outback. Where do they hang out? We want to rent a vehicle and drive out to the pool
Does anyone know of any cheap places to crash in Aruba. All i am looking for is a cheap place to crash and chill out. Nothing luxurious or anything. I am planning to go sometime mid March of next year, visiting both Curacao and Aruba. I got in touch with a possible host on Couchsurfing.com for both islands but in case i decide to go the bnb or hostel route or last minute plans change(god forbid), Ill have something to fall back on. Thanks all :)
How is the weather in august is it prone to hurricanes?
I'll be staying on the island of Aruba for an university research project for several months later this year. During this time I'm looking for a cheap location to stay, ideally just a spare room or apartment. It doesn't have to be near any tourists hotspots and I'm okay with performing small household tasks to accommodate my stay. Optionally I'm more than willing to live in with a family. I'll be going a student budget so I'm not looking for luxury, but at the same time I would like to live with some degree of comfort, since I'll be extremely busy during the months of my stay. The exact dates of my stay are still unknown, but it's safe to say that it will be around late August till late October. Any suggestions are welcome!
I would also love to know whether renting a car will be crucial to my stay, since my research will most likely take me all over the island (I'll be interviewing students at schools). I've got a car license that is restricted to automatic transmission cars only, will this be a problem with renting cars? Can I get around by bike or public transportation? Being Dutch I'm somewhat of a vivid biker, so physically I'm quite up to the task, but will it be safe and practical?
I thank you in advance for your answers,
How much money should I budget for transportation (taxi, public bus, or hire car), as my wife and I do not prefer to eat at hotels. Also, are there any must not miss restaurants?
I have to phone to the US for business during our stay in Aruba. The phone calls will last 2 - 3 hours. Could anyone give us the best way to phone to the US, on a extended phone call, that must be clear and consistent? Thank you for any ideas.
anything to do in Aruba at night, other than casinos?
Has anyone purchased an underwater camera in Aruba? If so, what kind would you recommend? What was the price range that you had to pay for the camera?
My husband and I would like to go to Aruba in October to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. I would like to get an idea of what the weather is like during that time?
Thanks in advance!
There will be four adults staying for a week at the Westin hotel. Do we need to rent a car? Or do we look for airport to hotel transportation and then use buses and cabs for dinner and other town activities ?
arriving in Oranjestad from cruise ship and wondered if we could get a ferry or something over to De Palm Island and how much it would cost. As we only want to snorkel for an hour or two do we have to pay to get on the Island. Or are there beaches not too far from ship terminal which are good for snorkeling. Many thanks to anyone who can give me some info. Vonysc.
We will be traveling to Aruba in December. Question , is it allright to wear jeans to resturants at night for men,and white pants for women?

I have read horror stories about Car Rental Companies in Aruba. Can any one please recommend a reputable, honest and responsible car rental company in Aruba?

Is there a rainy season in Aruba?
My wife will be unavailable for a planned vacation from 7/4 - 7/11 due to an unplanned business trip. We (late thirties) were scheduled to stay in the low rise section of the island. Thoughts/feedback on things to do for a first time traveler (by himself) to Aruba, or should we attempt to reschedule and eat the additional deposits and re-booking fees? I really need some time away...
Another Aruba question. I guess I could wait until I get there, but I only have a few days so I don't want to spend time trying to figure things out when I get there. :) Has another gone sailing/snorkeling with Red Sail Sports? Any comments? Should I make reservations before I go (next week)? Also, should is it worth spending a half day at DePalm Island? I'm traveling on my own and would like to avoid crowds/kids. :) Thanks a bunch!
I'm looking for some advice on transport while I'm there and would appreciate any help. I was planning to rent either a car, jeep or motorcycle while I'm there. Just wondering if I rent a car or jeep will it be a pain to find parking at the beaches or restaurants or any problems getting around. If I have a couple drinks (not 10 or 12 but 2 or 3) do I have to worry about breath checks? I really don't like crowds, I like to explore and I plan to be in/on the water a lot. Any other suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
I am father of 2 boys age 16 and 17 and I want to introduce them to scuba diving for the 1st time. We can all swim quite well and have snorkeled many times before. We are vacationing in Aruba over Easter Break from high school. From what organization should we learn to SCUBA? Are there discounts offered in any coupon books or....
We plan to do this early in the week and then possibly later if/because we enjoyed it so much.
Signed, on a budget...
