    I've used the DePalm motorcoach for each visit and never had a problem. Exit the airport and the staff is there in bright yellow shirts ready to direct you to the bus. The Tam is the first stop with the Divi, where we stay, being the second. We're there in 15 to 20 minutes. If I were staying in the high rise area I would probably take a taxi, but for the Tam or Divi the motorcoach is more than sufficient.

    Peg, if you don't me asking, and this is just out of curiosity, did you get your DePalm motorcoach transportation ticket as a part of a package, like cupidgirl? Andrea's post shows the price for a ticket listed as $20.40/person. I was surprised that it would actually cost more to travel by bus if there were more than one person in your party, so I thought there might be discounts available.

    I have nothing against the bus, and on our first trip to Aruba, we booked through Apple Tours, and it included bus transportation. I kind of enjoyed the trip to the Concord (now Westin, I believe). Since we'd never been to Aruba before, I enjoyed seeing the different resorts along the way. I think we ended up ditching the bus on the way back to the airport and taking a cab, so we could leave later.

    Corona, I've always booked through expedia and the transportation has been part of the package. One of the things I liked about the motorcoach is that the driver usually offers commentary about the area. If you've never been it helps to hear about when the shops downtown are open, or have some of the known restaurants be pointed out.

    Thanks for your reply, Peg. I bet their main market is through packages. I always enjoy a talkative driver too. Even though we've been back several times, there's always something interesting to learn about the island.

    I agree!!! I took the bus once, and that was enough. There again, we were in the high rise area and it felt as if it took forever. Bully is the Best--imo!!

    Taxi fare from the airport to the high rise resorts for a maximum of 5 persons is $25 with an additional $3 on holidays and Sundays.
