    Thumbs up Just back from Aruba

    I did reviews on trip advisor under my GotDrums logo there.
    Great trip I could live there.
    Has got to be one of my new favorite places in the world now.
    Walked around at night and never felt scared or worried.
    Truely the most friendly and nice people I have met from hotel staff to bus driver to cab drivers.
    Took the forum advise and took a cab to the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino.
    Hint-If you want to eat the breakfast buffet here at the Aquarius pre pay for the tickets at the front desk its only 15.00 dollars american apiece.
    Great resort great stay.
    Again loved the people here could live here.
    But stock up on the sunscreen I took a lot of Aruba sun home with me (and thats ok).
    There is a constant breeze blowing here so you really dont know how hot it is until its to late.
    Took the bus to Arashi Beach (4.60 american round trip) and then walked to the California lighthouse. It was great to walk because there is some cool scenery and volcanic rock on the hill on the way up.Didnt see the tour buses stop here to look at the cool scenery on the walk up.
    All the local's I met were great.
    I had planned to take my kids to the Bahamas for my youngest daughters graduation trip but Im re thinking that.
    Aruba is calling to me.
    Thanks so much for being such a great island and lovely people.
    I'm sorry you have gotten a bad rap in the states.
    I will spread the word-and I have a very big voice.
    Peace and Blessings
    To all of Aruba.
    We will be back
    Kindest Regards
    Tim Wirth and family

    Aruba does have amazingly friendly people! Another place that has even friendlier people (imo) is Bermuda!
