Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum. My wife and I had our honeymoon in Aruba 4 years ago, we loved it so much we purchased a timeshare resale at lacabanna for a great price. It was one of my favorite vacations and we had an amazing time. We both love beaches and site seeing, so we didn't spend too much time off of the resort-plus the whole honeymoon thing . We are heading back this week (checking in on the 9th) but we also booked my parents for 10 days for their 25th anniversary at the same resort (different room). I am trying to book a few activities for my parents, but being that I was only 22 my last time in Aruba and didn't leave the resort much I'm not sure what the best activities for the 50ish crowd is.
My parents didn't really have much when they got married and they never really had a honeymoon, and this is the first non-family vacation that I remember them ever taking so I want to make it as special as I can for them.
When my wife and I went we really enjoyed Smokin Joe's, but other than that nothing really sticks out in memory. We tried one expensive/fancy restaurant and I remember being slightly disappointed. I figured for the 10 days if they went to 6 or 7 average priced but really good places, and for 2 or 3 nights we would try to send them to a more special place.
We don't have a great deal of extra money, but I'd like to at least set them up with 1 or 2 really nice meals. We don't need 5 star dining, but a good nice place, maybe with a great view. I've read through the forums and I have an idea of what I would like, but I'm pretty sure at 26 my taste may be slightly different than a couple on a second honeymoon after 25 years. Your thoughts would be appreciated.
Edit: My dad loves BBQ and my mom loves seafood. They both love eating at places with character and great views. They mentioned to me they would really love to have at least one meal on the beach. They would rather not eat at American chains or get Italian food since that is pretty much everywhere here in NY.
