    Easter weekend

    Anyone know if the stores, clubs, restaurants are open easter? I know that religion is important to most Arubans.

    There will be some things open but it will be selective. Last year alot of restaurants were open on Saturday but closed Sunday and Easter Monday. You'll have to get the schedule when you get here.

    These are the 'national' holidays which mean most
    businesses besides restaurants and some other
    tourist businesses will be closed:

    04/02/2010 Good Friday 04/05/2010 Easter Monday
    Ling's has a website but nothing listed:
    http://www.lingandsons.com/ling/home.do

    but it is still early so check it when you get closer.

    I was hoping to stop at Lings on the way to the hotel from the airport on Easter Monday, but they said they'd be closed. I don't know about Friday or Sunday.
