    Tubes at the Surf Club were $10 last year and they have an air hose by the pool to inflate them. Not sure what the floats cost.

    I just saw a lot of floats and noodles the other day at Certified grocery and the adjoining Tru Value store.

    They do have noodles you can use at the Tam and Divi, but to answer your second question, both the Tam and Divi have a marketplace where local artists come and sell their wares. They have jewelry, painting, etc. Check your activity schedule they give you on check-in. I can't remember which nights they are, but it's two different nights so if you miss it at one place, you can hop over to the other. There's also a flea market just up the street from the Tam. Again, I don't remember which day, but you could ask at the desk. I'm thinking Saturday, but not positive. My mind tends to go to mush once I arrive in Aruba!

    WE just pack them in the suit case. They wrap around the inside nicely, assuming you have some extra room. If it gets tight coming home our kids like to give them away to "little kids" just arriving. Remember to let TSA folks know if you get chosen for a random inspection. We did and he thanked us for the warning after the noodle jumped out as he opened the suitcase. LOL

    Where to buy reasonably priced floats

    I have been to Pricesmart which is near the airport and similar to Costco. I do not remember if they have swimming floats, but it is a great discount store. If you are not a member, you can purchase an inexpensive pass for the day. I'm not sure if Pricesmart is still offering the passes to non-members, but it is certainly worth a try to look into it.
