Hi all - I tried to do a search for this but came up empty. If anyone has been to both places, I could use a little help. We were just in Cancun in October but haven't been to Aruba.
Cost: Aruba was a little more expensive but we can live with that.
Beach: Where we stayed, the beach wasn't that great due to the hurricanes which is really too bad. You really couldn't be in the water as it was really rough and the width of the beach itself had decreased considerably. I'm wondering how the beaches are in Aruba in general and at the Tamarijn mostly.
Bars: I was a little disappointed in the fact that there weren't any bars on the beach in Cancun - I just saw some pics that ArubaLisa took of the Tam and it looked like at least one bar was on the beach (correct me if I'm mistaken) - how late do they stay open? The Cancun resort only had one option at night and that was indoors. I would be fun to be able to be outside on the beach having drinks.
Dancing: At the Tam, is there a bar where you can dance or do you have to go off resort for that? We just discovered swing dancing and would like a place that plays older-type music or at least not hip-hop, rap, etc.
Thanks much for any help/advice offered.
