Hi there folks me and my bride to be will be taking our honeymoon in Aruba and staying at the Tamarijn Aruba beach resort 22/07/2008 for 2 weeks and we cannot wait to visit what looks like paradise to us!!!!
We would appreciate any tips, hints of things to do, places to see etc and if any of you can suggest something special for us to do then all would be extremely appreciated.
Welcome to the board & congratulations on your upcoming wedding.
Having two weeks in Aruba will allow you to see and do things at a leasurely pace, if you are anything like the rest of us this will be the first of many visits to Aruba so what you don't see or do now leaves you something to look forward to
Shane&Frances, welcome to the forum. Hopefully you will love the Tamarijn half as much as we did. Dh, dd and I are returning in a little over two weeks. Below are the sections of the review I posted upon our return. Our Photos of the Tamarijn.
If that is beyond your budget as it is ours, perhaps dinner on the beach at the Flying Fishbone or Passions? Passions is a quick inexpensive taxi ride from the Tamarijn. Flying Fishbone is about a 25 minute expensive taxi ride. For that, rent a car for the day to see some sights and then use for your transportation to the Flying Fishbone. http://taxiaruba.com/new/farelist.html
And lastly, make sure your travel agent has you signed up for Aruba's “One Cool Honeymoon” This is free through participating resorts, which the Tamarijn is one, and provides some really nice perks.
