    I'm traveling to Aruba with four newly minted 18 year old boys, and they're meeting up with a friend who moved away, and whose family are also Aruba lovers. Too bad it appears we'll just miss your group...lol

    One suggestion you might have already thought of is to rent two cell phones - one for you and one for the girls. My son brought a friend last year, and we rented two phones. We stay at the Marriott Stellaris, and they could walk to the mall or to where their friends were staying nearby (they happened to meet up a few other kids from their high school who were also staying in the Marriott section), and we could easily stay in touch. They also liked hanging out around the nearby beach restaurants/bars in the evenings with their friends, so it gave them a little more freedom and gave me peace of mind.

    We're renting our phones with Aruba Discount Cellular (each phone is $30/57 mins or $48/114 mins including free calls to the states).

    You're welcome.

    I have phones reserved with http://www.arubadiscountcell.com/ .

    They deliver and then pick up your phone at your hotel.

    I used another company, FastPhones, last year because you picked your phone up at the airport and returned it there just before you enter the terminal. However, they don't have their airport kiosk any longer, so they do the hotel deliver/pick up now. They're more expensive, but it was worth the extra expense for having the airport convenience. Now that that's not an option, I went with the better price. From reading the Aruba message boards, Aruba Discount Cell has a very good reputation.

    aruba for teens

    hoping to entertain (2) 17 yr old boys...my son and a friend we are bringing in a few weeks- hoping to bring their guitars to keep them somewhat occupied- also I fould out their cell phones work, so that will be added security in letting them have some freedom!

    Check on cell phone charges. You do not want any nasty surprises when you return home.

    Also check with your airline as to carry on size restrictions regarding the guitar. http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/assistant/editorial_1235.shtm

    I love the beach (who doesn't?), anywhere that I can snorkel, The Donkey Sanctuary (much to the dismay of my daughter), the lighthouse.

    Please....just tell then to stay together. Plus, a reminder....vacation romances are not good.[/QUOTE]

    Rob O...so true! Last summer one of the deckhands on a snorkel excursion took a liking to my daughter and her friend (17 and 18 years old). My daughter has a BF and couldn't be bothered by the advances. Her friend....that was another story. She adored the attention, and while I told her to stay away (he was about 30 years old), later that night there was a message from him on our hotel phone! She SWORE that she didn't tell him our room number. Even worse, it was in Spanish (the girls are both fluent; my husband and I are limited to about five Spanish words each). He took our hotel information off of the manifest! I was quite worried about him showing up at our hotel. Fortunately, we never heard from him again, but I was very concerned about leaving this young lady unattended.

    Three years ago another young deck hand was interested in my step-daughter who was 21 at the time. She rebuffed his attentions; we were less concerned about her ability to handle herself anyway.

    My guess is that this happens quite a bit. Keep an eye on them!
