    Best Day to Check In &/or Fly

    Last year we flew out late Friday night to JFK from SFO (mistake) - then down to Aruba - landing around 1 pm on Saturday to check into the Surf Club. Very crowded airport & a long line at the resort.

    Is there a better day to travel? If I can get the Surf club on a Friday or Sunday - are those days better?

    Thanks!

    YOu can now check in at the Surf Club on Thursdays, that is a far better day to travel. Saturday is the busiest, then Sunday, then Friday and Thursday is new so that is going to be the quietest day.

    Tues - thurs are the cheapest days to fly and have the least crowd. You can also check in from thurs-mon for all marriott timeshares.

    I should add that the expanded check in dates may be effective beginning in 2010

    For 2010..... you can checkin to the Surf Club on Thurs/Fr/Sat/Sun/Mon.
    The line this past Sunday May 3, 2009 was quite long in the early afternoon. So many flights arrive close together...... no worries..... relax.... your in Aruba! I think all days are becoming a little more crowded..... Saturdays being the worst.

    Saturdays are the worst by a pretty wide margin.

    I can only go by photos of the beach and yes it does look crowded. There has to be something about the resort that makes it so special. The pool?
