    Cool love aruba!

    This is my first visit to the forum. My husband (david or divi dave) as our friends call him and I have been to Aruba 10 times. This coming September it will be 11 visits. We always stay and the Divi. Last year the Minister of Tourism gave us a certificate of distinction and became a distinguished visitor of the island for 10 consecutive visits. We had a very nice ceremony at the divi to celebrate the event.

    We have extended our stay to 10 days because 7 days just wasn't enough. Hopefully it will extend into 2 weeks. Have met so many wonderful people over the years. Last year we met a great couple from Wisconsin and plan to meet again this year to have "fun in the sun".

    Glad to be part of the forum!

    wow the minister gave you the certificate?!?!
    the minister did not give us our certificate, but a nice man named francis presented paul and i with our certificate.

    and you are right, a week is definitely not enough time on island.
    welcome to the forum!

    Enjoy your trip.Funny thing is we went for 7 days and felt that was too short,then we went for 11 days and felt that was too short.Next year we are going for 2 full weeks.........and that will probably be too short also.

    Is this certificate of distinction just a Divi thing? We have been going 2X a year for several
    years now and know several couples that have 15+ years there, and I never heard of it.?

    Yes we did get the certificate from the minister of tourism. We also had our picture in the Aruba Today. The nice man I believe was Francis Ridderstap who is the assistant manager of the divi and tamarijn. He set the whole thing us for us. We got to know him over the years and he always said when we're there for 10 consecutive years they will do that for us.

    I really don't know if it is a divi thing or not. We got to know the Assistant Manager of the Divi and Tamarijn and he told us that when we come to Aruba for 10 consecutive years we would be distinguished visitors. He set the whole thing up for us at the divi. Even got our picture in the Arua Today paper.
