    Planning Tours,Beaches, etc

    How many days would you spend on sight seeing and tours?

    Were staying for 7 nights, and figured 2 days would be more than enough, as it gives us a good 5 days to enjoy the beach, and not be rushed.

    i would count it in hours, not days.

    maybe 6 to 8 hrs tops.

    you could schedule and island tour including a stop at baby beach to snorkel, in that tour you could drive thru the arikok . 4+ hrs tops

    more touring another morning to the alto vista chapel, california lighthouse and fallen down natural bridge...........2+ hrs.

    2 of our forum members do tours contact them thru this forum private messaging
    TAXIDRIVER and CYRILO CROES both are approx $45 per hr. (NOT per person) great pricing , great service, great tours

    We went our first time by cruise ship- did our touring using ABC jeep tours.
    Decided to come to Aruba for a week for our first land vacation.
    Made tons of plans after many hours of researchiing.

    We spent the day on the beach after eating a good breakfast.
    Stayed on the beach in the water til later in the afternoon.

    Took showers, napped, went to dinner.

    by the time we blinked our week was over and we did NOTHING.
    Best vacation ever!

    7 nights? Say Saturday to Saturday...
    You lose the day of the night you arrived. Saturday

    That leaves 6 full days. Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday

    First full day spent on the beach to unwind. Sunday
    Last full day spent on the beach soaking up your last Aruban sunshine. Friday

    That leaves 4 full days. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday

    Unless you hate the beach. Imo, and my opinion only, a half day tour of the island is sufficient. The island is not that large and you WILL see all of the highlights.

    If you LOVE to snorkel do as Andrea suggested and take a tour with a snorkel stop. Otherwise, would you rather be snorkeling or on the beach?

    In all likelihood you will return to Aruba and can do and see more then.


    If you love the beach, do not make too many plans until you see it in person.
    You may never want to leave.

    contact member here TAXIDRIVER (aka Bully) or CYRILO CROES

    both are wonderful tour givers.
    charge hourly approx $45 (NOT per person)
    WILL do Baby Beach along with other sightseeing along the way.

    3 hours may be more than sufficient

    If you would rather do a non private tour contact DEPALM TOURS
