I've been reading all the posts in this forum for the past few weeks and am getting more and more excited about going on our trip.
I went to Aruba for the first time back in 2002 with my husband and a few other couples. We stayed at the Divi Divi and had a great time. I realized way back then that going all inclusive wasn't really for us because we kept on wanting to leave the resort and try different restaurants. This trip it's going to be just me and my 24 year old daughter. I've booked the Radisson since it seems to be in the middle of all the high rise hotels and walking distance to many great restaurants. I have a few questions that I hope someone can answer for me.
Is it really safe to take the public transportation/bus? If so are the bus stops near the Radisson? Do they stop near or at grocery stores if we wanted to pick up anything for our room? Are taxi's easy to catch near the Radisson; meaning are they waiting around for their next fare or do you need to call a number to schedule a pick up.
Also, if we were to buy beer to have in our room do they allow the guests to drink it on the beach? I was thinking of bringing a soft sided cooler that folds up nicely in a suitcase.
We're thinking of taking a nice catamaran/snorkel excursion; can anyone recommend one or tell me one to avoid?
Any suggestions on places we should check out at night for a lively fun place for drinks? Not necessarily a night club but a fun place to listen to music and people watch.
Any suggestions would be great to hear.
Thanks in advance.
