    You might be lucky and meet another couple who want to share a cab to the Ren, if that's allowed. Also, don't underestimate the value of a chatty cab driver. I'm sure they tell the same stories over and over, but I've never met a driver who wasn't eager to tell us some really cool stories about Aruba sprinkled with a few Aruba insider tips. Well worth the extra ten or so dollars, let alone the the major convenience of a cab rather than the bus.

    Hi Bill,
    I see that you said that you take the bus around the Island. can you tell me where the bus goes. The reason why I am asking is because when we go to bermuda, we ride the bus all around the Island, one can really go anywhere on the island by bus. This is my first time to Aruba and we want to take the bus as much as we can. Any and all information would be great.

    thanks

    They won't let you on the bus with luggage. I tried doing this from LaCabana to the airport a few years ago and the bus driver wouldn't let me on.

    It will take you from the High rise area to down town. Someone has a picture of the route that they posted a while ago.

    I like riding the bus. You kinda get the feel for the island and the people.

    Funny story, when DW and I first started to take the bus a strange event happened. We missed our stop so we decided to stay on and loop around. To our surprise everyone but one girl got off, the driver went down some dirt road and up a hill to a vacant area (Thought it was part of the route). Park turned off the light she jumped on his lap. I hated to do it but I had to let them know they had an audience. never forget that one.
