    Leaving Aug 18th!!!

    Hello All,
    This is my first ever post on this forum, but we r seasoned Aruba travellers- honeymooned here 18 years ago- 8 or 9 vacations here since, the last several with our 2 kids (14 and 8). Staying 4 days at Renaissance (never stayed downtown before) and then 1 week at Surf Club
    Trying some different things this time: Tranquillo sail/snorkel lunch cruise to south of Island, then a sunset cruise on Black Pearl later in trip- these r not your typical catamaran-jammed-with-people trips that we have done in the past as I discovered by reading various threads in this forum (Arubalisa). My son and wife are padi certified- anyone dive with JADS before? My son (14) is also into surfing, and surprisingly, not a very popular thing in Aruba (unlike wind surfing), however we found a possible "instructor" through the Bula surf shop in town...hopefully it pans out . I think Arashi Beach is where the locals surf.
    Any recommendations on dining in the downtown area???

    Anyways, gotta start packing

    I would make definitely go to Pincho's-maybe a mile past the center of downtown on a pier. Very nice people and wonderful food. We also like Cuba's Cookin' and people in this forum love Yemanji but I haven't personnally been there.

    Welcome to the forum.
    L.G. Smith Steak and Chop House at the Renaissance receives as reviews as does
    El Gaucho which is also located in downtown Oranjestad.
