When you exit the controlled area of the airport, after collecting your luggage, you exit through sliding doors and you'll see taxis to your left. Here's a video that shows exactly what things are like from that point so you'll know ahead of time:
I am thrilled for you!! We have been 6x and taxi to the Renaissance each time. It's quick, easy, and direct. Check out Yemanja restaurant behind the hotel ~ deelish. Happy Trip!! If you are like alot of us you'll be back
Seems to be a theme here.... We also did a transfer our first time in Aruba. The next 7 or 8 times we just jumped into a taxi. Way better idea than sitting on that bus and making a zillion stops. You only have to do that once to say "this was a mistake". So learn from all of our mistakes, take a taxi and get a drink in your hand on the beach sooner! Time in Aruba is too precious to waste!
