    welcome to the aruba.com community forum!

    i have questions......

    where will you be staying
    and
    what do you like to do


    i have some tips on money saving dining.....
    take advantage of eating some awesome meals from the food trucks.
    1 container of one of their fantastic meals is enough for lunch AND dinner.
    there is a food truck daily at eagle beach across from paradise beach villas and lacabana monday thru friday...maybe saturday too.


    again, welcome!

    Thank you so much!!

    I will be spending some time near Eagle Beach and then near Modanza... I think!

    As in things to do.... I got my PADI last year so definitely want to dive as much as I can, Swim, Explore, lay in the sun with a good book and a beer (hahaha) hike but mostly just explore all the island has to offer!

    Thank you for the food truck tip, I'll be sure to check it out while I'm there!

    here are some snorkeling and Scuba places.
    http://www.aruba.com/things-to-do/wa...norkel?tid=131

    for on your own snorkeling, i recommend Catalina Cove and Baby Beach (inside the breakwater)

    i think many of us would love to read of your adventure.....if you can, would you create a "my aruba story" in the my aruba story category?

    re: your around the world trip, i know that would be an awesome read too and we'd love to follow along.
    that could be done iin the "off topic" section

    being nosey....sorry.........but please tell us a little about yourself in the round the world topic.
    this is very exciting and sounds like such an awesome adventure.
