What is the best place to rent a 4wd vehicle so we can drive on our own in the desert?
Stay out of the white sand with a jeep or any other large 4wd. You may be able to get through it with an ATV, but you will not go anywhere in that stuff with a jeep that has stock tires, like the ones from the rental agencies. We got a decent deal on a jeep from National when we stayed at the holiday inn last month.
I'm beginning to think that we have seen it all, at least everything I want to see. All I really care to do is enjoy my family, enjoy my Aruban friends, enjoy the weather, food and cocktails and relax by the beaches and pools. I know, I am boring, but I work hard and Aruba is my reprieve.
If you like snorkeling, go out with Kent or Stuart at Magel Halto. We have snorkeled many, many times, but this is a completely different experience than any of the typical Aruba snorkeling adventures.
