    • Natural pool

      by jazzie0498 Online Now Jun 9, 2015 at 12:19 PM

      Are there any tour booths by the Carnival cruise terminal offering tours that go to the natural pool? This shore excursion from Carnival is fully booked and I called ABC and Depalm but either they're fully booked or they pick up too early. Our ship is docked from 8am - 4pm. Th
      This is our last resort and hopefully there are tours by the port which will do this. Thanks for any help.

    • Any free walking tours available?

      by IMCheapcharlie Online Now 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.

      Is is possible to engage a taxi or tour driver when arriving by cruise ship at the dock? Want a 3-4 hour tour of any interesting sights--not necessarily shopping.

    • Never been to Aruba

      by asangwan Online Now Jun 24, 2014 at 2:15 PM

      I want to take my wife somewhere this Friday for 8 days for our anniversary. We have never been to Aruba and wanted to know about night life and weather. We like to go to bars, clubs, lounge at the pool and beaches etc. Weather shows low 80's with days of rain so was wondering if when it rains it rains all day or short showers etc. Appreciate your input. We usually go to Mexico a few times a year to places like Cabo, Playa, PV etc. and would like a change. Thanks!
