    Easter in Aruba

    Hubby and I will be in Aruba for Easter, arriving on Holy Thursday, can anyone tell me if Aruba closes any shops, etc secondary to the religious holiday. Not purposefully planned but what a seemingly beautiful place to be coming from a climate that often has snow for Easter! Also I wondered if possibly mass would be celebrated at the Alto Vista Chapel for Easter....Anyone know?
    Thanks.

    Hi all,
    We are about to book our 5th trip to Auba.....we usually go in mid March before the Easter rush. Didn't happen this year so we are looking at the week of April 15th. Are the hotels and beaches much more crowded in Mid April vs Mid to late March??

    Thumbs up

    The timechares CDM/ABC always have a Sunday mass at 5PM. Since Easter check with either as to time and at which resort.
