    Couple of questions before hour trip!

    Hi
    We leave on Thursday from the UK for our third trip to Aruba but this time we will be bringing our 9mth old with us.
    I have been hearing about the wilhelmina park in Aruba and wondered where it was and if it is worth a walk around there. Has anybody been there? Are there any baby swings there? or if not is there a park with swings in Aruba?

    Also I am looking to go for a nice back massage while there and was wondering if anyone had been for one before and could reccomend a good place to go. We are staying at the Boardwalk which is behind the Marriot so looking to go to one of the highrise hotels for one.

    I think thats it, just counting the days now till our trip!

    Wilhelmina park is next to Ren. , don't know about swings, maybe Cindyo does as that is where they stay.
    BG and I got a couples massage at the Radisson this year, very pleased with it.

    For massage and other spa treatments, I think the Larimar is quite good. Try it, you'll like it.

    We (Cindyo and I) love Renaissance and have been there many times. However, Wilhemina Park (while pretty) is nothing to take a trip for. It's a grassy park with trees, flowers and a statue of the Queen. It used to have one very small (back yard size) swing set; part if it is now gone. If you're staying at Renaissance, take a 5 minute walk through it (that's ample time). Otherwise, skip it.

    most resorts have a massage spa. near high rises is mill resorts. spa in there. manchebo/aruba beach club has great one on the beach. take the bus round trip for $2.30. ask for pass when you get on. have exact change. they don't like large bills.

    http://www.wikimapia.org/#lat=12.5159597&lon=-70.0353205&z=17&l=0&m=a&v=2 shows location of Wilhelmina Park in relation to the Renaissance.

    Many of the resorts along Palm Beach have small playgrounds for children. Not sure about non-guests being able to use them though.

    Spas close to the Boardwalk would be http://www.arubaspa.com/ Intermezzo at the Holiday Inn and http://www.mandaraspa.com/files/MS/Aruba%20Spa%20Menu_web_ready.pdf Mandara Spa at the Marriott Ocean Club
