I am planning to go to Aruba the first week in August. I know that this is considered the low season. So my question is, what if anything is cut back during this time, such as shows, restaurant hours, etc.?
My other question is about whether or not to go All Inclusive. I'm looking at going with all inclusive at the Occidental at the moment. While I would like the freedom of choosing a restaurant, I'm concerned about the cost of drinks. My girlfriend and I both like the idea of relaxing on the beach with tropical drinks. And I'm affraid if I don't do all inclusive that this could get very pricey (but, then again, there is a big difference in the price of the Occidental vs. a non all inclusive). So, what is the average price for a mixed drink, or a beer?
This will be our first trip and we're really looking forward to it. I just want to make good decisions. Your input will be greatly appreciated!
