    transportation question

    Hello! I am planning an up to 75 person wedding at RI but most of the guests will be staying around palm/eagle beach.
    Does anyone have suggestions as to what is the best way to transport all guests downtown?
    I know there is some public transport in Aruba - does anyone know how reliable they are? would you recommend that? i was thinking maybe guests could take the bus on the way there but I will definitely need some way to get them back to their hotels when the wedding is over.
    Any advice is appreaciated.

    try the fofoti company.
    i met the owner, his daughter over christmas and i bet they could help out.
    when you write to them, tell them that you herd of them from aruba.com and andrea recommended them.
    it is a brand new company and their buses/motor coaches are beautiful and they have an open air party bus.
    i hope it is affordable.

    Transportation

    We just returned from another wonderful Aruba trip and did notice the Fofoti Bus on the road a couple of times. From what I understand this is pretty new bus company, but heard they are good to work with. There is another bus company out there called DePalm Tours that have large air conditioned couch buses that hold up to 54 persons. Since you are having 75 guests, you will need an additional bus that is smaller and holds up to 27 persons. There are several good smaller bus companies on the island that are air conditioned and very good to work with. By the way, the Fofoti bus looked similar in size to the Depalm Bus.

    Wow that sounds like such a great way to get married. When is the wedding?

    This is a funny commercial from aruba about weddings:

    those lewis black commercials are very very funny (IMO)
    quite a few folks do not quite "get" his humor.

    i wish that advertising campaign had been better accepted.

    Wholeheartedly agree. The more I watched them though, I think they could be better understood by someone who had already been to Aruba.

    Imo, the videos with Ian Wright were a better introduction and a bit cheeky as well, but maybe that is because I am familiar with his "style" from PBS' "Globe Trekker".

    Anyone have an idea where this dock is with the sand dune in the background? Just beautiful.
