Hi Lisa -- We, too, love Bermuda, and have been going for many years -- you'll find Aruba different, but will have just as much fun! We've been to Aruba once 3 years ago, and are going back in less than two weeks -- can't wait! Reading these posts will really help answer your questions -- it did (does) for me! I know what you mean about the Bermuda buses -- such a friendly experience! As far as crime/drugs go, it's everywhere, even in Bermuda now. (in October, someone climbed up to our balcony and took my wallet and cell phone while we were asleep -- we had let our guard down and didn't lock the slider) So, you just have to remember to be sensible now wherever you go. Too bad, but where there are tourists, there's money to be taken for drugs.
Seems to me you live in Yarmouth? We're in Falmouth!
Have a truly wonderful trip!!!
