    Talking New Year's Eve 2010

    Hi everyone,
    My husband and I are traveling back to Aruba this December to have a late one year anniversary celebration! We will be in Aruba for New Year's Eve...we have booked our restaurants for other nights of the week however we are unsure what to do for Dec 31! What goes on in Aruba during this time? Do the high rise hotels have celebrations or anything? How can we find out more information? Anything will help! Thanks!!!

    the nights leading up to new years ever are spectacular!
    lots of fireworks along the roadside.
    lots of celebrations.

    lings has a fireworks display which is pretty good and is held a couple of nights before new years eve.

    many of the resorts and restaurants have "specials" for new years eve.
    i would check with your resort and with restaurants by email in the latter part of november.

    many of the restaurants will have their new years menu posted by then.

    New Year's is a great time on the Island. We were there last year and will be back this year. The Ling's fireworks were amazing and the Island exploded with celebration on the 31st.

    I was there last NYE's, stayed at the Raddison, bought their NYE's special, had dinner on the beach, and then bought the package to go to the penthouse, open bar, band and food. Had a great time that nite, and what a view from there of the fireworks. The people of Aruba know how to party......

    So do most of the hotels have specials for dinner and then after parties up to the new year?? We are staying at a low rise this time so not sure what they will have.

    Yes, but each resort is different in their offerings.

    In the low rise area, on New Years Eve at midnight, the Divi has a barge just off the beach between the Divi and Tamarijn resorts, for a very nice fireworks display.

    We have a block party that is just terrific. Dinner at one house and then out onto the street for the fireworks, champagne and whatever else to toast the New Year. We have had up to 50 people out in the street to celebrate. It's a cul-d-sac so no traffic concerns. The surrounding neighborhoods all have fireworks that we can see. Usually lasts till after 2 AM. The one big thing is, you can walk home (slowly). If you can't make it, one of the neighbors helps. . . . .

    Fireworks are everywhere on the island. At midnight, you'll want to be outside. If you're in the palm beach area (I was outside in the Sopranos/South Beach Plaza area), you'll see fireworks from nearly every direction.

    In the week leading up, sleep can be tough. They sell a LOT of fireworks, and locals are setting them off constantly.

    The one suggestion I have is to MAKE A DINNER RESERVATION in advance! There are special menus in a great many places, and it's not a night to take a chance on being a walk-in.

    New Year’s Eve Party, “In The Jungle” at Renaissance Convention Center

    Date: Friday, December 31, 2010
    Time: 8pm – 1am
    Price: $160 per adult, $45 per child 5-12 years
    For reservation please call: 523-6404 or 523-6405

    Interesting I guess it just goes to prove that Aruba is a "family friendly" island, offering a party which includes children.
