    Day trip from Aruba to Curacao??

    Hi all,

    We will be in Aruba for our first trip from the 21st July to the 4th August and was wondering about a day trip to Curacao. Is this possible? It is really difficult to sort out here in the UK as most people have not even heard of Aruba before! Any ideas for how best to sort this, travel and price wise would be much appreciated and one last thing - would this also be possible to bonaire??

    Thanks in advance
    Leanne

    Next Aruba trip in

    Travel between ABC Islands is by Air. One airline is www.tiara-air.com. I believe they fly daily with 15-18 passenger planes.

    Two other airlines make the flights. www.fly-inselair.com and www.flydae.com. Hope this helps you find what you are looking for.

    Last season we booked with Tiara Air to go to Curaco for two days to visit friends. Tiara has an office in the plaza near the grocery stores.
    The cost was $255 for 2 return, plus $35 cash each airport tax at each airport.
    We did not find any free public beaches as most of the best are owned by all-inclusive hotels.

    Stay in Aruba.

    if you have the time to go for the day and the funds, do it!
    you could catch an early flight and enjoy the day there.
    we did it a few yrs ago and have no regrets.

    as EBB said, the hotels are on the nice stretches of beach so if you want to use the palapas you'd have to buy a day pass. i do know most will sell you a day pass of about $10 each.

    there are tours of the island, which is considerably larger and more congested than aruba.
    the folks there do not seem to be as friendly or maybe that is a perceived notion on my part.
    the beaches are not as glorious imo.


    whatever you decide to do, make sure you give us a trip report once you are home.

    my son and his friends did a day trip to curacao in february. they liked aruba better. they got a great deal of $107 r/t pp. they went over early in the morning and came back to aruba early evening.

    once i get to aruba, i tend to park my fat butt and not move too far.

    re: bonaire imo is waaay better than curacao. prettier, slower paced, real slow paced. awesome snorkel and scuba. a very pretty national park. (not great shopping, limited restaurants, not great beaches)

    we love bonaire, love it for the snorkeling and scuba.

    i reread your original post.

    DO IT...go to bonaire or curacao

    you are traveling almost 6000 miles from the UK to aruba.
    what is another few hundred miles once you are on aruba?
    you are on island for 2 weeks, you have the time!

    the links in the previous posts for the air are a good start!

    enjoy

    Thanks for all the comments and the links, will look into it and let you know what i decide. I just think as we are travelling so far it would be a shame not to travel to either of these as they are so close (relatively speaking )
