    Trolley??

    When my husband and I were in Aruba last year, we were shopping and saw the trolley tracks being installed. (still had a way to go yet). Has this been finished yet??? Would love to try it if it is.

    it is about 95% complete
    i have been told they are working on finish landscaping and a punch list.

    it is running, however i do not know if it is on a regular schedule.

    Thanks for the info. Will defn' check it out. Hopefully we can take a ride and do some shopping.
    Speaking of shopping, where are the other "mall" areas other than down town Oranjestad? Have been on to the Hard Rock Café, and toured the island different ways but have never seen another shopping area, although I do know they exist. Would also like to try some new restaurants other than the El Gaucho.
    Any suggestions???

    Will look up these places as well. Thanks for the info. Although we have been there 3 years, this being our 4th year when we get there in a few weeks, there is still much to see and do and would very much like to do it on our own with advise from other "regulars" that really truly know the island.

    The trolley was running in Aug. from 9-1 daily as told by a merchant. I didn't use it though but was told you can get on near the bus company.
