    no car

    I plan on traveling to aruba mid-march. We're going to stay at a friends house in Santa Cruz near the national park. We don't want to rent a car. Is there a way to get to the tourist spots without a car from Santa Cruz?

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum patricia!

    here is the link to the aruba bus routes.

    the further inland that you are......as you said near the national park, may not be public buses in that area.

    since you do not want to rent a car, you may have to rely on taxis.
    taxi service is very good and very reliable.

    here is the link to the taxi fares

    hope that some others have more useful information for you.

    Unless your standing near hotel, or at restaurant, you'll probably need to call.

    most likely to call in advance.

    a round trip to eagle beach would be about $42 not including tip.
    the taxi owners have the right to disallow wet/sandy passengers.

    have you asked your friend how far the bus is from the house?

    Any particular reason that you don't want to rent a car? It would be a lot cheaper to get around from where you are staying than taxi's. No waiting time either. You can rent a car for less than $200 a week. Driving on Aruba is easy.

    We agree too. Aruba is a beautiful island. So many scenic spots to visit if you have a car.
