    1st timer 1st wk of march 09

    Hi
    New to the site looking forward to chatting and reading to find out more about Aruba and a possible trip to Curacao the first week of March 2009

    Coming with a big group, I'm sure I'll find out our hotel arrangements soon we finally found reasonable airfare.
    7 months and counting

    The best I can describe the islands is: Aruba is a beach destination, and lots more activity in the evening. Curacao is more historical, and little less activity at night time. I personally like both, but Love Aruba, and found the Arubians are much more friendlier.

    Hi Arubalisa & Jarubian

    We got the air booked to Aruba, looking into all-inclusives now. Not sure yet how big our group is.

    Would like to do maybe a day trip to Curacao? Is that and option?

    Great news on the airfare!

    Let us know if you need help narrowing down the choice of resorts.

    The three airlines flying from Aruba to Curaco are:

    Tiara Air
    Insel Air
    Dutch Antilles Express


    As of June, De Palm Tours was running a day trip for $282 per person + tax. Hotel pick up was I believe at 6 a.m. with a late return.

    Imo, if you are only in Aruba for 7 or 8 days, it takes a lot out of your vacation in Aruba. There are plenty of things to do and see in Aruba to keep you busy for that period of time. If you are going to be there for a couple of weeks, different story.

    There are no ferry services betwen Aruba and Bonaire or Curacao or Venezula for thtat matter.

    As to "must do's", most popular are:
    island jeep tours, horseback tours or ATV tours & snorkeling excursions

    Other options are to rent a vehicle and tour the island on your own pace as well as snorkel from shore.
