As far as I am aware the Divi Flamingo has a casino. Never been inside though. Curacao has casinos as well.
this place is exquisite!
as of dec 15 clothing is "required"
with the inclusion of clothing, this resort in bonaire will become very popular.
the beach there is terrific.
nope, never been there....but a friend of ours goes there 3 x a year and says it is his favorite place on earth.
where I wouldnt' go back to.... jamaica (beautiful, but not safe, and they hound you) Domincia, (again beautiful, but they hound you) panama, isla margriata (armed guards) cancun (been there did that) bahamas (again did that)
would go back, grand cayman, st john, st. thomas (but i have heard the crime has gotten bad there) curacao,
but really why fix something that isn't broken?????
"why fix something that isn't broken?????"
I only ask because, as much as the Lady and I love Aruba, the fact is that (A) it's a 4+ hour flight (a bit of a pain, in more ways than one), (B) it's getting more and more pricey every year (I'll not go on about airline prices and monopolies here, it's not the place) and (C) we would really like to head south a little more often. The benefits that go with being in that environment/atmosphere are numerous, and frankly, the Lady deserves more than one week a year in the sun.
Other than that, there is NOWHERE we would rather be....
Aruba, Aruba, no place I'd rather be than in Aruba....
The chill's really starting to set in here, the little thermometer in the corner says it's -1, that's Celsius. Brrrrrr.

Aruba.... sometime in 2017, unless that lottery ticket hits.
If you look around you can find GREAT deals for Aruba...I love aruba, it is the only island my boyfriend will travel too! and my parents go twice a year in a timeshare....I am always on the look out for deals, travelzoo, cheapcarribien, bookit.com..I am constantly looking for deals... the past three years we have stayed at the raddison 5days4nights and it was been around $750..pp flight and hotel, this is in november..If you LOVE aruba spend the extra time on the computer, you will find a great deal, just be patient! good luck!
Player's Choice always offers specials on the Radisson and includes the Radisson's daily breakfast buffet.
Bermuda is wonderful, but expensive and seasonal. We have been there as late as October and the weather is still very nice but can be iffy for swimming. Have you thought of the West Coast of Florida? Marco Island, Sanibel Island, and the Sarasota area have wonderful beaches and the weather is usually good, although they do get "cold" spells. You can usually find good deals on the airfare and hotel if you stay away from the school vacation weeks. It's not Aruba but it is a viable alternative.
