    Things to do near Palm beach-College kids

    My family is going to aruba for the first time in mid-may. My sister is bringing her boyfriend for their college graduation and I'm 19. My parents are pretty much doing their own thing and we are looking to go out every night and drink heavily.

    Were staying at the Marriot Surf club. I have read their is a lot of families and people so is it mainly younger people? Or will I be able to meet some people around our ages...?

    Also, Could someone suggest clubs/bars/activities we can do at night were the crowd might be on the younger side and where I could meet some girls . Also are drink prices similar to the United States or will I be going to my wallet a lot? Will we have to take cabs to get to most places?

    -Any info is appreciated, THANKS!!!!!

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum.
    are you aware that aruba has raised its drinking and gambling age to 21 and passports are required for id?
    ok i am kidding.

    there are a lot of families and couples and teens and young adults at the marriott.
    marriott has a large campus so i would wager that you will not be at a loss for meeting new people.

    drinks (mixed and beer) are significantly more expensive than in the usa.
    plan on opening the wallet a lot!!

    some happy hours offer 2 for 1 specials.

    there are many bars in the palm beach area, you will have many options all less than 1/4 mile from marriott.

    Definitely go to Moomba - always a good scene over there. I have met a lot of fun people there.

    The bar at Buster's is usually pretty decent as well.
