I'd much rather use a taxi.
There were numerous times we were walking thru the Tamarjn area and there were a lot of people (and luggage) sitting waiting for the bus to arrive to take them to the airport. I couldn't imagine standing there waiting like that, making sure your luggage gets on the bus and then having to deal with all that again once you're at the airport.
We called and had a taxi at our door within minutes and we were off to the airport.
And there is always a line of taxis waiting at the airport so that's not an issue at all.
My husband and I are returning to Aruba for our 3rd time in July and always use De Palm for transportation to and from the airport. We booked it again, and were thinking of canceling to use a taxi instead. My question is, how much time in advance before our departure flight do we need to get to the airport? De Palm always picked us up hours in advance.
