I'm new to this forum and am in Aruba now. Last minute trip to use an RCI expiring week... staying alone at Aruba Beach Club (ABC). For those who are new too, it's in the lo-rise section at Manchebo Beach...not a lot here...mostly several other similar resorts with their own restaurants. Nice location...great beach without the tourist feel of the hi-rise area.
I didn't get a car yet and am using the local bus line...takes a bit getting used to it but a good way to save money. The restaurant suggestions on here are very helpful but I am a frugal traveler so I look for bargains where I can. I don't want to eat a fancy meal every day...sometimes a beer and snacky food is just fine... especially since I'm alone this trip. I thought it would be nice to have a message forum on here about where to go for happy hours drinks and food...i.e., save a buck when you can.
