    First Time Trip Itinerary?

    Hello, I am new to this forum, but seems like it's going to be very helpful. This is going to be my first trip to Aruba. Anyways, I'm looking for an Itinerary for the week of July 11-18, so I can have the best time ever! I'm looking to do the following, but recommendations are/will be very helpful on which charter/company I should use for any of the following. However, I am open to any ideas and so I can have the most fun possible. I'm staying @ the La Quinta Beach Resort is located on Eagle Beach in Oranjestad, Aruba

    Day 1: Fishing (deep sea, marlin fishing)
    Day 2: Scuba Diving
    Day 3:Wind Surfing
    Day 4:Butterfly Farm
    Day 5: Island Tour

    Days 1-6: (EVery Night) Night Life where should I go? (I'm 30/single and looking for a good time)

    any other ideas please help ????

    Thanks for your assistance,

    If you want to do an island tour, I would consider doing that first....then do the rest. Check with others as to whether Butterfly Farm is worth having on your itinerary. If you must do something "educational" while there, the Balashi or Water Plant might be more of interest than the Butterflys.

    enjoy your first vacation/trip to aruba.

    do not OVERPLAN.

    why not have one or 2 set activities and let everything else happen spontaneously?

    a great way to meet other folks is at the beach or pool happy hours at some of the busier resorts...............lacabana, hyatt, radisson, holiday inn

    do not lock yourself too much into a "plan"

    have fun

    You're killing me with this itinerary...sorry to say...I see no beach time, laying around, fine dining..I do know your age but not who you're traveling with, but no one in our family would like your schedule.
    The first thing I would do would be the tour, then take it from there. There's so much to see, and NOT to see...if you get my drift.
    Butterfly farm, as previously posted, isn't all that great for a 30 yr old.
    Places to see would be baby beach, california lite house, alto vista chapel, natural pool.
    Sorry I can't recommend any boats to use or dive shops to work with.
    There's plenty of bars around...Senor Frogs downtown,Sopranos, Busters Garage, Hooters, Hard Rock, Moomba Beach.
    I am sure others will chime in so read them all.
    No matter what you will love aruba and its people.

    Relax & enjoy, so far all good advice. I don't want to suggest to much, but! Check a day sail with Capt. Anthony on the Tranquilo very relaxing with food & drinks, snorkel, and also an great crew.

    thanks for another great idea, because this way I can do the snorkeling and drinks all on one trip . I will compile all suggestions into one relaxing itinerary for a great fun filled vacation.
