My future wife and I will be honeymooning in Aruba in a couple of weeks. We're staying in the Tara Suites at the Bucuti Resort. I've got a couple of questions and was hoping to get some insight from some of the members here.
(1) A friend of mine who has been to Aruba before recommended waiting until arrival to rent a rent-a-car because there are generally some good coupons in the magazines on the plane. What do you guys think? Do you anticipate me having any trouble renting a car without an advance reservation? Am I likely to get a better deal this way? Do you recommend any specific rental car company?
(2) We're going to be on a somewhat limited budget, but don't want skimp on the experience either. We'd like to eat casual dinners most nights and have a nice dinner on the beach one night. The Pirate's Nest at Bucuti offers a dinner on the beach. Would you recommend going there or trying elsewhere? Any good recommendations for the casual dinners (restaurants close to Bucuti are good of course, but we'd like to explore some too)?
