    Aruban National Holidays coming up!

    Hello everyone!

    Just a reminder that this coming Monday, April 30th, is Queens Day (a celebration of the Queen's birthday) and May 1st is Labor Day. Many stores will be closed, and most supermarkets will have limited hours if they are open at all.
    The high rise area restaurants should be open unless they are family-owned and want to enjoy the holidays with their families.
    There are special public celebrations for the Queen's birthday and you should be able to find this info out at your hotels.
    Be careful on the roads. A reason to party in Aruba means a reason to drink more. It is just "one happy island" after all....

    On that note... Acension day is May 17 this year.

    Last year we had plans to do a few things not knowing it was a holiday and everything we wanted to do was closed. (Supermarket and Balashi Tour). Keep it in mind if you will be in Aruba next month.

    I am not sure they were closed ALL day - but they were certainly closed after 1pm. Check into it.

    We were totally caught by surprise... gas stations were closed, etc.
