wow....I am right up there with ArubaLisa...very good argument for not buying a house in Aruba now.....I have been considering it for a few years now and was going to get rid of TS's and put the money towards an investment in a house....now I'm not so sure.

As for the TS's folks...as Andrea mentioned earlier...we got hit as well...but even that is getting a little riduculous, at Divi Village it goes like this...energy surcharge from 5.08-12.69/night depending on size of room, unit per night tax from 9.50-11.88/night and now a 10-25 dollar tax depending on size, but only per week, not per day...and that is only if you have consecutive weeks...I unfortunatley have 3 weeks 44, 46 and a float that I put in for 45...not considered a consecutive stay so will have to pay the fee 2x this year !!!
Oh well...nothing we can do about it...and as much as I love the island I will suck it up and pay....but probably not buy now....
