    1st trip to Aruba in September, need suggestions

    Hi,

    Last minute time off Labor Day and will be traveling for my first time to Aruba Sept 4-9.

    I'd like suggestions on where to stay, what to do, where to eat :-)

    I'm 40, my friend traveling with me is 40. We'd like something reasonably priced, with easy beach access. We'd like to do a lot of snorkeling while we are there. My friend likes to stay active with exploring and casinos not sitting on the beach while I'm all for the beach. I've not traveled very much and I've always hoped to lounge on a white beach with clear water. It would be nice to be able to walk right out to the beach to swim, snorkel, enjoy the sun but affordability will be an issue.

    Thanks!!

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum

    aruba has many terrific restaurants, bars so going all inclusive is really not a necessity.
    (see culinary culture)

    if you are looking for inexpensive, try renting a timeshare from someone!
    (see the timeshare category)

    snorkeling is terrific, casinos are plentiful and there are many island excursions, boating excursions and lots to do as well as beach sitting.
    (see the activities section) and http://www.aruba.com/things-to-do

    have you already purchased your air tix?

    you may want to contact aruba4you/mcm http://www.aruba4u.com
    they often have some very good deals

    hung paradise downtown
    Cilo downtown
    Cafe Plaza downtown
    Barneys on Palm Beach Rd
    Island Grill @ laCabana resort

    and there are more.

    If you are on Palm Beach and like fresh fish, have dinner at The Pelicans Nest on Pelican Pier between Holiday Inn and Playa Linda. I highly recommend the grilled grouper.
