    Counting the days!

    Hi everyone! We're getting ready for our 3rd trip to Aruba - last visited over the Christmas/New Year holiday in 2006. First time without our two girls (who are away at college and not happy we are going without them!), but we are bringing dear friends with us. I've learned so much great information from this fourm - thank you all for sharing so generously!

    We'll be staying at the Divi Golf Villas November 5-12, 2011. Am hoping to book a jeep tour with Madi (patiently waiting for a reply ) and have just confirmed a lunch snorkel trip with Tranquilo.

    Any advice on good locations for beach snorkeling would be very much appreciated. I've read good things about Arashi and Catalina Bay, which I know I can reach by bus. Mangel Halto looks wonderful too, just not sure how easy it is to get to without a car. Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Directions

    click above link for directions to MANGEL HALTO
    you will need a car rental or maybe hiring a taxi for a couple of hrs!

    and make certain you leave NOTHING visible in your car when you re parked doing shore snorkels.
    sometimes we hear of thieves ready to break into cars. (not the norm, but why take any chance)

    let us know if madi gets back to you. i hope she does!

    Andrea - thank you so much for the directions to Mangel Halto. We are trying to decide if we should rent a cat for the week. What is the driving like in Aruba? Can you recommend a rental agency? We would need a van - there are 6 in our group. I heard back from Madi last night, we are all set for our tour on Nov. 10th - can't wait!

    Scubadiver - thanks for the tip. Looking forward to spending a lot of time in the water :-)
