    Welcome to the forum!! You are going to LOVE Aruba, and while this will be your first trip, it will not be your last. You mentioned that you both like outdoor and hiking type activities? You may want to try walking to the top of Mt.Hoiiberg, and you may want to try one of the ATV Tours of the island. Culture wise you will be arriving after Carnival, so you will be missing out on that, however you can check out the Bon Bini Festival at Fort Zoutman on Tuesday evenings in the capital city of Oranjestad. And there is the Carruban Festival in San Nicholas on Thursday nights, lots of fun.

    Welcome to the forum! Aruba has some great opportunities to capture with a camera. Sunrises and sunset can be spectacular as well as the beaches along the southwest facing coast and the more rugged north and east coasts. We leave in 20 days and I'm still sorting out what gear to bring this time!

    You've lucked out! There is plenty of those activities to do.

    You can take a tour or two to get the feel of things, and if you're up to it, rent a vehicle and venture out as well.

    When hiking, bring plenty of sunscreen, water, snacks, and a map (Borsh map from amazon). Make it back well before sunset because rattlesnakes come out after dark (perfectly safe during day)
