    Christmas Dinner

    We (hubby, 2 teenagers and me) will be spending Christmas on Aruba for the second time as well as our 23rd anniversary on the 30th of Dec. Last year we arrived Christmas day at 5pm, so no real Christmas dinner; it was burgers on the beach (it was nice, something different). This year we arrive Christmas Eve at 5pm and I'm wondering if anyone knows what special events go on for Christmas day or special dinners/buffets. I'm betting there are hotels/restaurants that have events, but if I wait until we get there on the 24th it may be too late to get in on something. Thanks

    I would email the restaurants which you are specifically interested in and see:

    1. will they be open Christmas Eve and/or Christmas Day
    2. will they have their regular ala carte menu or or a Prix Fixe menu (I know in the past the Tamarijn/Divi has always had Prix Fixe menus on Christmas and New Years) as have other non-all inclusive restaurants
    3. what reservation times do they still have a available

    When I looked last week for pricing over Christmas/New Years, judging by airlines seats still available, or lack thereof, as well as limited hotel availability, the island will be quite busy.

    Thanks Lisa! Good ideas. I never considered that they may only have limited menus.

    It takes a village, or in this case, a community

    I can add though looking back through my blog that Marina Pirata had a special Christmas menu. Andrea and I try to post these types of things as they become available.

    I TOTALLY AGREE!! Lisa just helped me out today with something on another site. I knew part of the answer but not all of the answer and, of course, Lisa came through.
