    The bar across from El Gaucho is called Garufa. Great place, especially if you like martinis- they have a little booklet full of them! There is also live music. Website is www.garufa-aruba.com El Gaucho is open on Sunday, but I don't know that Garufa is. Have fun and enjoy. We'll be there in May!

    Sounds like you are having a wonderful time. My husband and I also ate at Madame Jeanettes and Texas de Brazil and Azzuro. We are from Jersey as well. I call Aruba our heaven on earth. I cannot wait to go back. We are counting the days. Glad to hear that you are having a great time. Note: For the flight back. have a few cocktails and take a nap and before you know it you will be back in cold miserable Jersey. Safe traveling friend.

    I really enjoyed reading your report. It sounds like a real R&R experience. Nothing like knowing it is snowing at home, and you are getting a sun tan. We are going next winter. I cannot wait to post pics on my website of me hanging out on the beach while everyone at home is battling fog.

    Thanks again for the report!

    I'm SO enjoying reading about your vacation! Glad you wrote about the experience near Senor Frog's. I go downtown alone sometimes, so I'll be more alert. Enjoy!

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!!!

    Hi windy,
    thanks for your reply. I am sure we will have a wonderful time in Aruba. I guess, this is a change for us and of course we are fearful of the unknown. I guess one can see this is uncharted territory for us. The first trip is always the hardest. Ps. I live in Saggamore Beach

    Lisa, we loved every minute of our first trip to Aruba, which was right after the Natalie Hollaway(?) incident, and there was a lot of posting about that. I think her unfortunate choices caused harm to Aruba's tourism for a while. We felt TOTALLY safe there, the people are friendly, helpful, and fun! Bermuda has British influence, Aruba has Dutch and more! Only a handful of days til we go, this time for two weeks -- can't wait!
