    Christmas 2010 - 1st time to Aruba

    WOW - 44 days and counting. This will be our first visit to Aruba, and we are bringing the kids (20 and 18 yrs) and they are each bringing a friend so we will all have a great vacation!!! We arrive on Christmas Day at 2:30 in the afternoon, have a car booked and christmas Dinner on the Beach at Flying Fishbone (staying at Divi Beach and Golf) I have been told Christmas and the 26th are "holidays" so many stores not open - any suggestions regarding a few groceries, wine/beer etc - you know, the essentials. Do many of the large resorts have mini-marts in them that may be open? Also have a half day sailing/snorkeling booked, deep sea fishing for the boys/shopping for the girls and our vehicle is an SUV so we plan to tour - any reccomendations are appreciated.
