    Hi Andrea,
    We were there from 5/2-5/9, you were either there or getting there when we were done. That picture was on 5/7. Did you do any snorkeling there? What an amazing spot! Heck, what an amazing island and vacation!

    We were there May 6 - 19.
    That walkway @ Boca Catalina Beach must have been under the sand We did not see it at all.

    We snorkleled at Catalina Cove....about 1/8 mile north of Boca Catalina Beach.
    We really love Catalina Cove excellent snorkeling.

    There were a few snorkelers there at the beach each day we were there.

    Yes, Aruba is very amazing!!! I am glad that you had a great vacation.

    That might be Catalina Cove, that's what DW called it, I thought it was Boca Catalina. It's at the L/big bend in the road, 6 or 7 parking spaces. Was it the Cove?

    Silly me, it was Catalina Cove. I guess we never made it to Boca Catalina. We also went snorkeling at Malmok, a little tough getting in the water with all the rocks but another great spot but hands down the best spot we found for shore diving was Catalina Cove. We followed that pirate boat by accident, they knew where to go.

    The natural pool was pretty neat and what a challenge to get there, the waves were breaking over the rocks (real windy for the week). We swam with some Pompano, that GoPro we bought was a great investment to save our precious memories. We are already planning on a week in November.

    We just might be through with cruising, we've found a new love, called ARUBA..

    Thanks for the suggestion and have a great wedding and time over there! I'm sure we will!

    We used to be big cruisers until we found Aruba. Now we hardly cruise at all, but we just can't miss our annual trip to Aruba!
