    Aruba: 8/13/12 !!!! Cant wait.

    Hi! Glad to meet all you fellow Aruba Fans.
    My name is Mary and will be in Aruba the week of August 13th. Traveling with my mom and dad, 2 kids (13 and 10) and my cousin.
    We are staying at the Radisson.
    I have stayed at the Marriot, and Westin in previous trips. We decided to try out the Radisson due to the renovation, reviews, and closeness to the "kid" resturants. As all inclusive was not an option on our budget. My kids would be happy to have pizza delivered to the room every night, lol.

    Since, we have been here before, outside of my cousin. This will be her first. We will be renting a car, and showing her all the "popular" spots. Baby beach, natural pool, and just driving around the island freestyle. ETC.

    We have done the snorkeling and deep sea fishing. Any "NEW" things to do?? Keep in mind the the age of my kids. My youngest wants to do the horseback riding tour, but afraid he will get "bored".
    Lastly, we normally do 2 nights of "Fine dinning" But I need some ideas were they have a good "kids menu" for my picky eaters.
    Its been 3 years since out last trip.

    Oh, we booked out trip thru expedia, (flying out of Chicago on Trans Air) and will be staying in the B and C towers, wont know till we get there.

    Thanks!!!! CANT WAIT!!!!

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum mary!

    re: horse back

    imo 10yr olds may be not able to participate in the riding safely

    have you done the donkey sanctuary tour?

    It is now back to being hosted at Mira Sola. Mira Sola, along with the Aruba Tower, had been closed for renovations and the alternative location for the party was next to Castaway's Bar at Gilligan's.
