Hi everyone we are back from sunny beautiful aruba.

we stayed at Casa Del Mar 2 bedroom. Great location great & accomadatoins. the beach was wonderful. Happy hour 3 times a day. We arrived saturday at 1:30. rented a car from Aruba Royal (arubalisa recommended) great rates 25 % off. Got to cdm
round 3, dropped our bags and headed for the beach & happy hour. We were a bit tired so we ate at pizza bobs. great pizza.
Sunday went to the grocery store then beached all day .went down town to iguana joes for dinner. we had fetias (spell check) we got an order of chicken fitias and 1 steak. plenty for 4. we also had the bbq chix wings yum and pink iguna drinks. Monday we went on the jolly pirate where we met Arubalisa and family. (nice family) It was a fun time. 1 of the stops to the ship wreck was really rough. i even tried the rope swing. had dinner at the salt & pepper that night. everyone enjoyed there meal. Tuesday we toured the island in the rental car went to the light house the old natural bridge, san nicholas had dinner at bingos was not happy with this choose of resturant.
i was craving a big bingo burger from all the reviews. what a big disappointment. so over cooked and tasteless. cross bingos off my list for next time. Wednesday beached all day then went on the banana bus. fun fun fun time. the ad says 5 drinks included but there is more like 8. lots of fun stops a karokee bar, moombar down town, senior frogs. and one other local bar. we had a great crowd on the bus. albert was our driver lots of fun.
senior frogs was packed. the crew on the bus was alot of fun. they always had a watchfull eye on everyone. got in around 1:30 am. Thursday we did the kini kin atv tour. that was fun a bit dangerous getting to the natural pool. i was a little scared. very rough going to get to the natural pool. had dinner at smokey joes. wow the portions are hugh! we could have all shared an order of the ribs. The ribs we very good. had left overs for lunch the next day. Friday we beached most of the day then went down town for some shopping. the kids went on the tatto boat while we had dinner at gianni's. i had shrimp scampi husband had veal parm. both very good. went to the casino to end the night. broke even so i feel like a winner .
