    now it's raining......what to do? what to do?

    Yup this is rainy season and although most of the time, the rain showers are very brief.........sometimes they will greatly interfere with
    your outdoor activities.

    It's almost 3 pm now in Aruba and I notice on the different webcams, it appears to be raining heavily.

    What do you do on a rainy day in Aruba?

    We like to drive around, or go to the casino or take naps

    We've actually never had enough rain to chase us from the beach. If we did though I would probably head downtown for shopping and a light bite at some reśtaurant we had never been to. Option 2 would be to grab some magazines and some beverages and sit out on the balcony.

    We had some rain on one of the days we rented an ATV and I have to say, it didn't take away from the day at all. We actually had a few more puddles to ride through. If I had a tour scheduled or an atv rental, I definitely would not let the rain deter me.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    I'm probably jinxing myself but in about a half dozen trips we have experienced a total of maybe 30 minutes of rain in Aruba. If we do ever experience it we'd probably duck into the closest restaurant or bar and make the most of it. When in doubt find something to eat.... although a nap may not be a bad idea either.

    Tough one because we have only been there one time when it rained more than an hour. A few years ago we went in October and the day we got there it was raining. It rained all night. The next day it rained so hard you couldn't see through it for most of the morning, then sprinkled most of the afternoon. It did not rain again while we were there. We found out it had been raining hard every day for the previous 2 weeks. Some folks were there for 2 weeks and it rained on them every day. We simply did all our shopping for the trip that second day. I will say that there was water everywhere. The road to MJs was underwater as was half their parking lot. Water was standing at every low point at Palm Beach, Eagle Beach and downtown for our whole trip.

    In all the years of visiting it has only rained hard once. It was late at night & I had no idea it was raining, we were inside Crystal casino - came out to flooded roads.

    Scuba, you get wet either way. Stay inside and catch up on email. Walk in the rain. We live in New Mexico so we hardly get any and what other people consider rain, we consider a refreshing mist. Shop. Take a nap, something never allowed at home. Look at the ocean in the beauty of the rain. Just be totally glad to be where we are and not someplace colder. Fix a cocktail and wait for it to stop. No bad choices.
