    NOT ME i did NOT say aruba was not appropriate for kids.

    The person that said it was the sister of friend that made the statement of aruba being not appropriate.

    IMO aruba is very "family friendly" and kids are part of it.

    Np way would you, Andrea, say "Aruba was not appropriate for kids," rather you wrote that a friend' sister in a conversation said "Aruba was not appropriate for kids" if I have your quote straight; and you corrected the person.

    If I inadvertently alluded that you said it was not; my wording was wrong and I owe you an apology. You are the ambassador of good will for the Island.

    [QUOTE=Andrea J.;165409]while out to dinner last week at buccaneer with friends, and friend's sister and BIL, i mentioned to those folks about their 11 grandchildren coming to aruba sometime.

    the woman (friend's sister) said no way was aruba appropriate for kids.
    i found that sad.
    i have seen many a family on aruba enjoying themselves.
    swim, sand, activities......a great place for families w/ children/QUOTE]

    Although we have no kids....well, I guess we sometimes act like kids....does that count???
    Sorry, I digress.....I think Aruba is a wonderful and safe environment for kids to play....for starters the beaches are not so crowded that you could miss someone grabbing your child if you were not on constant vigil.....secondly the water is usually calm enough that they can at least be by the water playing (with someone in attendance of course)
    there is lots to do for kids at many of the high rise hotels....(besides happy hour that is...)
    The butterfly farm, ostrich farm, donkey sanctuary, banana boat......
    Anyway, just wanted to put in my 2 cents.....
    ARUBA....HOME AWAY FROM HOME

    No way, would you, Andrea, say such a thing as "Aruba is not appropriate for kids." If anyone is an Ambassador of good will for the Island it definitely is you. I guess, perhaps, my response may have been worded wrong; and, if so, I apologize.

    No lie, our kids have as much fun in Aruba as they do in Disney. I don't know how anyone could say Aruba is not appropriate for kids.
