    My first trip to Aruba

    My fiance and I are going to Aruba for our honeymoon this September. From what I have read, it sounds like a good time to go - not too crowded. We are staying at the Radisson. I am most interested in plenty of relaxing beach time, but we do want to see the sights. Any information from seasoned Aruba visitors would be appreciated!

    We just got back from our trip on Wednesday night, I'm so sad! LOL We went for our first anniversary I'd definitely recommend the Flying Fishbone restaurant, our table was in the water...I mean, our feet were actually in the water/sand while we were eating and it was at sunset... ahhhhh it was so awesome!

    Congratulations by the way!!

    Thanks for the link Andrea- I'll check it out. The feet-in-the-water restaurant sounds RIGHT up our alley - really amazing! I will check that one out for sure. I am so excited!

    We have stayed at the Radisson the past few Septembers. You are right- It is VERY uncrowded. Most days I felt we were the only ones on the beach.
    I have photos taken at noon and the chairs were all empty.

    What I liked best about the radisson-- youcan reserve your chair/palapa the day before at 4pm.

    aruba visit

    You will love the Radisson. It is situated perfectly. There is a pier close to the Radisson where a huge catamaran is docked called the Palm Pleasure. Book it! It is a fun sail and they will stop a couple of snorkel spots-one above a sunken ship. There are great drinks and food. I would HIGHLY recommend you rent a jeep for a few days so that you can explore the island and off-road. My husband loved that! Check out the website for The Flying Fishbone restaurant for a romantic evening. The food is fantastic! If you are really into exploring try to find Dos Playa Beach in your rented jeep. The locals surf there and is is close to empty most days and very romantic. We also love dining at Le Petit Cafe. Most of the dishes are served on these hot stones-so the food comes out sizzling and the aroma is to die for. We have always felt so safe on Aruba-it is really the only place where we have visited and felt like we could take off and explore on our own. Try to see the Blue Parrot Fish while you are there-you can hand feed them-it is a blast. These are some funny looking fish!
