    • Any free walking tours available?

      Aruba Jan 27, 2015 at 12:43 AM

      This is my first visit to Aruba arriving on a Carnival cruiseship at 8 am til 4 pm next week. Does anybody know if I could do a self- or guided walking tour once I arrive? If yes, where can I get that?

      Is this a walkable place to see history/culture/shopping/architecture/beach or do I need to get a taxi. I'm trying to save money and not take a ship excursion like I usually do at a new port. However, if you think I should tour the island, that is what I would do. Advice and recommendations appreciated.

    • Mystery Restaurant

      Aruba Jan 5, 2015 at 7:52 AM

      I visited Aruba about 10 years ago and am going again in a month. I went to a restaurant that was in land and among local houses. I can not think of the name of it, but part of it was outside and part of it was inside with a bar and a really good bartender making crazy good drinks... The food was awesome and I remember there being a pickled onion appetizer... I really want to go back, and looked through a list, but no restaurant names jumped out to me... Any Help? Hopefully it's still open.

    • How to Get to De Palm Island

      by vonysc Online Now Oct 6, 2011 at 6:50 AM

      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.

    • Professional Photographers

      by Lorna13 Online Now Feb 22, 2007 at 6:19 PM

      My family is planning a vacation to Aruba. We are looking for a professional photographer. I have been on a couple of forums and have gathered a couple of names of locals. Can anyone help me with information on how to contact the following.

      I have heard that Paul van Driel is supposed to be the best on the island.

      Also I have the name Steve Keith. Don't have much info on him at all, just that he does photos for one of the local magazines.

      Tinia Cunha. No info just the name.

      Anyone with information on any of these would be greatly appreciated. Websites, phone numbers or e-mail addresses.

      Any contact info would be great!

      Thanks so much in advance.
