    If you're too early you can read or listen to some music. If you're late, you're hosed. Most people don't really do anything significant on the last day anyway, so an extra 30 minutes to be early isn't ruin a vacation like missing a flight would.

    In response others - It's good to know Sunday's are a little less crazy ... I may follow Bully's lead and leave at 10:30, just to maybe catch a few more minutes in Aruba. :-P

    Actually, now that I'm thinking about it ... we have our transport to/from the hotel included in our trip package. I've asked about it before & most said it will most likely be DePalm buses ... do they set a time up with you when you arrive or do they just make constant rotations to the hotels? I know everyone suggests to just bag the bus all-together & either rent a car or take a taxi/Bully, but it's already been booked & with wedding planning, having to cancel that is way at the bottom of my list - haha!

    Actually, Sunday is the second busiest day at the airport after Saturday. But, going thru downtown on a Sunday will be a breeze AND (most importantly) you have one of the earlier flights out of Aruba so you will not hit the 2pm-4pm crunch of people all trying to depart around the same time on various airlines.

    When we used the DePalm buses (many moons ago in the late 90's), they would give you a time to be ready with luggage in the lobby for your pick-up. It usually worked out fine but one time they were a little late in picking us up and we were getting a little anxious watching our time tick away while waiting in the lobby. All was fine though.

    When we departed on 7/16, Bully picked us up at 10:00 for a 1:05 departure. No line at Continental and we buzzed through. Immigration slowed a little as a large family with a person in a wheelchair was ahead of us. Shopped Duty-Free and cruised through Security. Pcked-up luggage and got to Customs to find an agent with my mother-in-laws maiden name. Had a great chat about possible family ties and got to the Crying Room with enough time for lunch, drinks and more shopping, along with a few minutes on the slots.
    We never mind the three hour rule because the airport is really user-friendly.
