We arrive in Aruba for the first time on Fri. 9/18. We're very excited! Was wondering if there is anything we should do over the weekend vs. during the week? Or not do on the weekend because it's busier? Some of the things we'd like to do:
Dinner for 20th anniversary at Simply Fish
Pirates snorkeling tour
Kuku something nite club tour
Baby beach tends to be busier on the weekends as it is popular with Arubans. The flea market next to the grocery store is something to do on Saturday, though there usually isn't much more there than at the various shops around the island.
I have to agree with Chadd on baby beach being crowded on weekend., GO ON THE WEEKDAY AND BRING A COOLER THAT YOU CAN PURCHASE AT ANY GROCERY STORE AND FILL IT WITH BEVERAGE AND SNACKS AND ON THE WAY THERE STOP AT Subway and pick up the daily special they are having. (Sorry about the caps).
I also suggest if you are going to San Nicolas Baby Beach than take a tour to some of Aruba's beauty, like Ayo rock formation, stop at the anchor and take pictures. Don't go to caves because I went 2 weeks ago and they are now closed due to people destroying the beauty. There are so many wonderful places to visit especially the ruins next to the natural bridge, great for photographs and a awesome view of the ocean waves.....
Jolly pirate snorkel cruise is awesomeeeeee....
Enjoy your vacation...
