    My wife and I did the half day ATV tour through DePalm. Great tour. You hit a bunch of nice sites (baby bridge, Arokak Park, etc.). It was informative and a lot of fun.

    IMHO...you have a little to much going on. Wait till you hit the beach, those tours will not be beckoning you. Sorry to say your list of must do's was making me tired...and pls don't take that the wrong way.
    You hit the nail on the head when you picked your restaurants. The activites you have planned will "suck" up alot of good beach time. And again, i personally think its to much. I am sure others will weigh in with their thoughts. You could probably live without the Ostrich farm.
    You also posted 4 boat rides..Tatoo, Jolly Pirates and Tranquilo and Submarine...IMHO, to much for 9 days...Save some of your ideas for your 2nd trip....that way you have other things to do. Hopefully you'll return to aruba...
    No matter what, its a great island, and i am sure you will love it. We're on our 12 th trip.

    Cool Other suggestions

    Good choices...If your tour does not bring you to the Natural Pool, I would make sure that you rent a jeep (i.e. a Wrangler not a car) and go there (you will not get there with a car). You may also want to go into Oranjestad to see the city and drop into Charlie's bar if you go to San Nicolas.

    I would suggest hiking the trails at Arikok - start early and you'll have the trails practically to yourself. You can get a map at the gate and the attendant will send you to the park office. Here they can tell you what to look for (like where the wild goats hang out), poisonous snakes to watch out for (we didn't see any) and where the different trails go. It's a fabulous hiking experience like no other - a carribean wild, wild west!

    I go against the grain again, you folks seem like the adventurous type(hiking etc.), so skip all of the organized tours, get a good map, use the money saved and rent a nice suv for three days and explore on your own.
    I agree with cindyo that you have a lot of things on your agenda, save some for your next trip. You will return!
    The only thing that I would do now is make dinner reservations at FF; 5:00 is perfect, and get there early for the best table; yes sunset is @6:30 but you will still be there then.
    Also, under no circumstances book the Kukoo Kunuko for your last night; makes for a wretched flight home. Enjoy

    If there is one thing you must do in Aruba, it is take the opportunity to relax! Enjoy your trip....please report when you return.
