    First trip - just booked!

    Hi Everyone,
    Aruba has been on my bucket list for a LONG time. We finally booked our first trip to Aruba. It's not until November 2013 but I'm still very excited.

    We'll be staying at The Aruba Beach Club through an exchange with RCI. Can't wait.

    I appreciate any and all suggestions and look forward to hearing from you.

    Martha

    terrific
    welcome to the aruba.com community forum

    visit the culinary/culture section for lots of restaurant advice!!!

    we have stayed at the ABC and liked it!
    November is a good time to be there, as there is plenty of space and palapa availability at the beach and poolside.

    Congrats MRussell! You along with all of us forum members will fall in love with Aruba. We have been going for 10 years now and go during the month of November. Make sure you create a countdown ticker it helps to see the months and days go by. Also reading this forum and everyone's trip reports and wonderful advice makes the time fly by. Have fun researching

    Also stayed at the ABC and had no complaints, have a great time planning and thinking about it for the next year......It'll be worth it and then some. Ask away if you have any questions this board has some people with serious AUA issues......and you will DEFINITELY be planning trip #2 before you know it!!! Welcome and have a great time!!!!!

    Our first trip to Aruba was an RCI trade to ABC in 1995. Our 16th trip was an RCI trade last May into Costa Linda. We have stayed at ABC 5 times. Some trades and some rent from owners. We decided on our first trip that 7 days was not enough and have not stayed less than 10 days since. Ask any questions you come up with and someone will be able to answer.

    Welcome o the "Forum." Without a doubt, you will love Aruba. What a smart move to plan ahead and how wise to ask for suggestions from the many "Forum" members, most of whom, have been there many times.

    Again, welcome, and, you will love Aruba...(aka) "Paradise."
