    Well if it comes down to me having to fly, ill go next month (march). I'm writing emails to alot of different companies to see if I can maybe get a discounted rate on a cargo or cruise ship, just to aruba. One way plane tickets are cheap cheap cheap, so thats how id get home. Its a shame I can only stay 30 days lol.

Good luck on getting to Aruba, and I know you will have a great time. How exciting. I don't know you, but I am very happy for you. Don't forget to give us a trip report. I wish you were going to be there in May, my husband and I would have loved to meet you. Oh who knows, you may still be there. lol

    WOW! Very brave.

    For sure, you will need a name, address and phone number where you are staying for the immigration officer at the airport.

    Good Luck with your trip and I look forward hearing about your adventures and seeing your photos.

    I've got my first 5 night all taken care of for the immigration officer. Staying on the northwestern side of the island close to the Cali lighthouse.

    Cool! That's a great area to stay and start from.

    Aruba is a small island... so they say. But going from one end to the other, it stretches quite a way. When I was the first time on Aruba, I think I drove over 1,500 km. Or was it miles? Exploring the island. A rental car for a week was under $200.

    Just thought if you might consider. You could cover the places which are hard to reach by foot and still spend lots of time discovering details and spending time of places of your interest.
