    First timers

    Hi all!
    Firstly let me say how much I love this site and forum, have done lots of research already!
    My husband and I are from the UK and are traveling to Aruba on 13th June and just wondered what your recommendations for must do's are on the island. Also, if you have any specific travel advice that would be fab.
    Thanks in advance
    Xx

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum!

    where will you be staying in aruba and for how long?

    pls tell us a little of what you like doing?
    beach....atv...hiking...snorkeling...scuba...saili ng...drinking...gambling...shopping...out dancing at night ?

    are you a foodie? restaurants are aplenty!!!



    i usually tell most Aruba newbies to resist overbooking activities.
    if you are a beach person, you will be hard pressed to leave the beach to do anything!

    i recommend and island tour, a snorkel sail, and the rest beach time.

    i hope others will give their opinions

    Welcome to the Aruba.com Community Forum!

    Give us some more information on what you look for out of an awesome vacation!
    There is the party bus if you are looking for great night life & bar hopping and then there are beautiful restaurants on the water and/or on the sand if you are looking for calmer night. There is really some must do's for every style

    Hey, welcome to the forum! You've started researching, so you are ahead of the game. One of our favorites is a snorkel cruise on Black Pearl. They fill up quick so book early! Do it on line and save a little bit... http://www.aruba-sailing.com/

    Thank you all so much for coming back to
    Sorry, I should have given a bit more info...
    So, we are heading to Aruba June this year for 14 nights staying in Palm Beach. It's a belated Honeymoon and although we are all-inclusive we will be wanting to get away from the hotel and have some 'special' dinners.

    We are both quite active and love to try new things (although I'm sure we will be having a lot of beach time). I would say snorkeling is on the must do list, is there a specific company anyone recommends for this?

    Many thanks,
    Hannah x

    Madame Janette is a great place for a special dinner, so is Passions on the beach.

    Aruba Bob is a good choice. The trikes look like a blast My favorite place to dine on the island is BLT at the Ritz. That said, there are places that have a more tropical feel like passions etc...have fun!
