    Best time of year

    Please forgive me for posting a question that I'm pretty sure has been asked many times. I just can't find a thread for it and I'm new to this forum. I plan to take my wife and 2 sons to Aruba in 2010 and would like to know which month would be best as far as non-peak.

    Thanks!

    I look at non-peak as the months that the hotel rates go down at the Bucuti, Manchebo, and Amsterdam Manor. Their rates always drop right after Easter (usually around mid-April, give or take a week) and don't go up again until around the week before Christmas.

    We go to Aruba every year in late April and in Sept. (have also been to Aruba in May, Oct., and Nov.) Sept. is our favorite month in Aruba because it's one of the quietest months and the water is warmer.

    On Palm Beach yes, as long as there are no storms. If there are storms, even Palm Beach can have waves.

    Same with the north end of Eagle Beach (we stay at Amsterdam Manor.) I can usually lay on my floatie in the water every day. See photos below.

    Thumbs up

    End of May to last full week in June.
    Why:
    1. Most cruise ships stop calling end of May for the summer months.
    2. Most school children don't arrive in mass till end of June.

    Our favorite time is first two weeks of October. Very low crowds and really warm water. We have been there in Feb., March, April, and October. But, we also love Feb. and March because we can escape our cold and snowy weather..

    We like April and October. October us more humid and less breezy. April has more winds and is a little more comfortable. Some don't like how windy it is in April. I would not turn down a trip regardless of what month it was. Love the place.
