    Aruba Trolley Car

    Would like to know where to pick up the Aruba trolley car by the cruise ships and where does it take you? Also, What time do they start and end and how often do they run?

    The starting place is by the end of the cruise ship terminal. The trolley runs all along Main Street. It stops near the end of the street, you turn the seats around, and it goes back in the opposite direction. I'm not sure of the hours, but they run every 20 minutes or so.

    You can hop on it anywhere on Main Street. The locals are really enjoying it and were making good use of it when we were there in Feb.

    It's a really cool little trolley, and yes, the locals do use it, though not nearly as much as the tourists.
    And, just in case, don't bother even attempting to work out the "schedule". The truth is, as "fast" as the ride may be, in theory,
    with all the people stopping and taking pictures, both of the trolley and each other on the trolley, and the wonderful conductor
    who is only too willing, understandably, to stop and let us take said pictures....
    In short, it doesn't go anywhere quickly, so don't be in a hurry.
    Not that anyone is, when in paradise.

    Oooooh, just 3 more weeks then we're back to paradise.
    Any
    ReiKi takers this time around?
    We'll be on the island the week of May 18th, and the standing offer of ReiKi on the beach still stands.
    Get in touch with me here before we leave and we can set up a session on the beach.

    We were there on a Sat. afternoon. The only cruise ship in town had already left, so there weren't many tourists around. On that day, the trolley was filled with local people who were shopping or just spending a nice afternoon in town. There were just a few tourists on the trolley that afternoon. The locals were very helpful with showing us how to flip the seats around for the return portion of the trolley ride.

    Thank you for the information. We look forward to taking the trolley car a few times while we are on the island.

    And in November we were the ones showing the locals how to flip the seats - I think my husband and I did half the trolley car that day. LOL! We didn't ride it on our last trip a few weeks ago. But I do remember that it is rather loud (and slow).
