    All beaches in Aruba are public property and may be used by one and all.

    What concession the vendors have I do not know.

    Maybe someone could confirm this?

    We were there yesterday. After reading this, I am glad we did not have to use the facilities. Hopefully, there will be a change soon.
    Next Aruba trip in

    I have seen this in MOST of the Caribbean islands to which I've traveled. Signs in Jost Van Dyke even go as far as saying, "If it's yellow let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down."

    On our visit to Baby Beach in March, the bathroom was open, we were not charged to use it, and it wasn't too bad for a remote facility! We found other out-of-the-way places with the "no paper in the toilet" signs --- not really a problem considering where they were! :-) (they were a combination of toilet/outhouse!!!)
    Sometimes anything is better than nothing at all! LOL

    I experienced the same thing when I was in Italy near Assisi - hole in the floor with a board on each side to stand on. LOL!

    I'm also used to seeing signs in the bathrooms telling you not to put paper in the toilets.....very common when traveling to islands or to Mexico.

    I guess when I travel to foreign countries I don't expect it to be like the U.S....and I don't want it to be either. If I wanted the U.S. then I would have stayed in the U.S.

    I used a bathroom on a train ONCE from Holland to Belgium....an actual physical toilet was there to sit on, but no piping-just a hole straight to the tracks! I went running, in horror, to my mother waiting outside, at the age of 24, because I had never experienced such a thing! We definately take the usual accomodations in the US for granted - it's only natural

    Haha sunnysmiles! That was the only strange thing on my week long trip, everything else was superb! : )

    But I do think I would take Aruba over anywhere else anyday!
