Keep that in mind.
Lastly, as a tourist destination this is not a topic that we like to bring forward but facts are facts.
Ill be in Aruba in about 2 weeks and was planning on snorkeling here but after reading about so many drownings here I am not sure if I should skip Baby Beach. Where can I snorkel that is much safer? And I still dont understand where are the danger areas in Baby Beach. Can someone explain?
