    cunucu arubiano

    Thank you for replies, everyone. Just a note about Cunucu Arubiano. It is an exquisite bed-and-breakfast set against a backdrop of Arikok National Park. The B&B consists of three small but elegant and modern villas distributed on a well-maintained property. We spent a week there with 2 kids and were the only family there most of the time. The kids could run, play and swim in the pool at their leisure. The B&B shares a fence with the Donkey Sanctuary and you can often observe donkeys walking through the maze of tall cacti that hides Cunucu Arubiano from the world. The serenity of the place is rarely disturbed by sound. I can see myself sitting on the porch day after day, writing reviews of Aruban car rental companies while waiting for the owner, Lizzette, to drop by with a mouthwatering Dutch-inspired breakfast. (I want those pancakes, like, now.) You don’t get crowds in that part of Aruba. You don’t even get staff on the premises after lunchtime - they clean up and leave and the whole place at your disposal. What you do get are the sights of Ayo Rock Formation, flowering cacti and unobstructed stars at night. Typically, you drive to a beach or some natural attraction during the daytime and raid a restaurant in town in the afternoon. Then you disappear from the touristy areas via a drive to the middle of the island, get on route 6, and then shove the car down a dark driveway which leads to the place. You park under a starry sky and listen to tradewinds negotiating Arikok hills. That’s how I remember Cunucu Arubiano.

    A GOOD 8 miles...It is pretty much what we in the U.S. would refer to as in the middle of no where. But sometimes that is good The link is a google map showing aerial location as well as proximity to Palm beach.
