Loved the natural bridge before it collapsed...now not so much...view from lighthouse, sunset drinks at the Hyatt, tearing it up on the north side with a rental jeep...I could go on for hours....
Need to check on a warning I just got...plz help forum members
Person at work told me to stay away from San Nicolas at night. DW and I were planning to check out the Thursday nite Carubbian Festival next week (trip starts next Monday the 1st - Yay!) ...anyway he says not to go because that whole area is a thriving escort/prostitute area and NOT recommended for a husband and wife to stroll around...and apparently it is legal in aruba! He must be pulling my chain. I am obviously afraid to google this while at work, but need some info from my trusted forum friends! Isn't baby beach in SN too? Have I been hoodwinked (I am known to be a bit gullible)? We're not the type to hang at certain type of bars looking for trouble, but this guy says there in bars and doorways, there are paper ads everywhere...etc. Am I getting worried over nothing? Please help!
Our favorite place on the island, is the great beach at the Boca Grandi. The water is the best, and its very quiet.
We've been to S N many times. Its just like any city you may visit. Just use common sense. Yes, prostitution is legal in S N. We suggest you head there in late afternoon and get a feeling of how things are. Don't be afraid to ask questions. People are very nice.
Good Luck and enjoy yourself.
We have been all over the island, you will be safe. It is nothing compared to my days in philly. The laddies of the night will not even look @ you with your family. I did not know prostitutes were present until I read about them last year. I think there are only a few and in certain pubs, u must have to look for them and ask around. Have fun and don't worry about it
We were in SN driving through to go to Baby Beach and we always go off the beaten path - you are SO safe in Aruba everywhere! We were going to go to the festival but did not make it. Met a couple on their honeymoon and they went to the festival and LOVED it - said the food was amazing - you should go!!
