I'm new to the board, and just confirmed air tkts + Aruba Bucuti Beach Resort for our honeymoon in december!
Although we've been to a lot of places, this is our first time in Aruba. Actually, first time in the Caribbean!
It means we'll have a lot of questions over the next weeks (don't worry, I know there is a search feature), hope you can help us to make this trip wonderful.
Let me start by one rather important question. Searching the board, I found contradicting (and dated) information concerning topless, some people even mentioning it's illegal. Hope this is wrong.
To the point: is ok for my gf (then wife) to go topless? I can assure it will esthetically match the beauty of Aruba's beaches
How about me looking at the other boobies, is it too rude to stare for awhile? I've only seen beach topless once, for a brief moment in Bali (I was departing when she arrived), so this is a somewhat new experience to us - too "offensive" here in Brazil, go figure...
And how would you do when you need to take a picture and there's a topless lady in the scenery? Ask her permission? Ask her to move? Just shot?
We really don't know the protocols and don't want to embarrass people THAT much. Indeed, I hope to find plenty of topless, so everyone would be comfortable with that (I know some oversensitive types will be embarrased anyway, but one can't catter to all groups).
Inputs are appreciated.
