    packing clothes

    As this is my first trip, would like some insight into the type of clothes to pack. Do I bother with any pants? Does it get chilly in the evening? For dinner is it casual attire or dressy?

    Thanks for your help.

    heck no pants!!!
    i am assuming you are female?
    if so........
    couple of sundresses
    a couple of short sets
    tank tops
    tee shirts
    bathing suits
    more bathing suits
    flip flops
    sandals
    maybe........a light sweater for places that are air conditioned real cool (marriott casino)

    evenings get to maybe the low 80s
    by no means chilly........not even cool.

    You do not need to pack pants, it really never gets cold enough for them (IMO). Girls can wear dress shorts into any restaurant and men can wear dress shorts with a polo shirt in just about every place. We do not frequent any restaurant on the island that requires formal dress...I'm there to vacation not get dressed up to eat dinner.
    Shorts, tshirts polo shirts or cabana joe shirts for men....shorts tshirts blouses for the girls.
    We wear our bathing suits all day long...if going in the jeep we put a pair of shorts and tshirt over them ( if were going to another beach or to NP or NB)
    sneakers, flipflpos, sandals all work.....
    Mascara is all I take and half the time I never use it...Oh, do bring lip gloss with moisturizer...that's a must...

    if one has long hair..............bring many scrunchies.

    EVERYday is a bad hair day on Aruba.

    Sun visors are a must.

    husband.......... shorts (like dockers or bermudas)
    the short sleeve hawaiian style shirts are appropriate too

    dress is casual for men and women

    raggy denim shorts or those offensive men's tank tees are not appropriate for most restaurants

    skimpy risquee' women's clothing is not appropriate for most restaurants.

    i have been to aruba 30+ times.........hubby has never worn slacks to dinner..............i have never worn anything fancier than a culotte set.

    ** disclosure I have not eaten at Mathilde or LeDOme where one must dress up a little.

    no hose

    panty hose are not allowed on aruba.
    it is in one of those NATO treaty things that women cannot wear hose on vacation on island.
