    ---- Correct! Actually I think its only one quart size clear bag per person and you don't put it in the carry-on but place the bag in the same box with your shoes, keys, watch, ......
    That Web Site above gives all the details.
    In your carry-on bag:

    Make Your Trip Better Using 3-1-1
    All liquids, gels and aerosols must be placed in a single, quart-size, zip-top, clear plastic bag. Gallon size bags or bags that are not zip-top such as fold-over sandwich bags are not allowed. Each traveler can use only one, quart-size, zip-top, clear plastic bag.

    What does the water taste like in Aruba? Will the hotel room provide bottles of water or do you have to constantly purchase botels of water? Is it possible to bring water in your checked luggage bags?

    There is no need to buy bottled water in Aruba, the island's tap water is pure and refreshing, distilled in one of the world's largest saltwater desalination plants.

    According to my husband, the Aruba is probably the best water in the world. He's a water/envir. engineer, who specializes in that stuff. It absolutely killed him to watch me buy bottled water while we were there. Sorry honey...cindy

    Why do you buy bottled water when it all comes from the same source anyway?

    Excellent question, Arubalisa. Drives me craaaaazy. They buy a bottle, fill it with tap water, then charge you 1000x the price of the tap water for the same product.

    If you're worried about germs, drink alcohol...it kills germs.

    Gosh you two crack me up!

    I think I am just going to stick to my good old sports bottle packed with ice cubes and topped off with water for my daytime beach beverage consumption.

    But watch out once 5 pm rolls around!

    The water in Aruba is the best that we've ever had. It has spoiled me. As everybody has said, take the golf cart to the end of the Tam and you can walk to Hong King market. We usually walk back to our room with our groceries as we only have munchie type food. I have put munchies in our carry on in the quart sized bags with no problems. Also have put the same food in my luggage.
