    suggestions for a rainy day?

    full day rainouts are unlikely in aruba.
    that being said, now and again there is a day that is just shot due to weather.

    so, what to do? what would you do?

    i think that i would most likely visit a casino, or hang out at the pata pata bar poolside at lacabana, or take a nap

    Indoor margaritas are just as good as outdoor margaritas.

    We always pack a deck of cards or Mad Gab (card game) and sit on the balcony (rain or shine) along with some adult beverages and invite friends over. If it's too rainy/windy then we just use the dining room table. We've also gone to a movie on occasion or just parked as close as possible at one of our favorite watering holes/lunch places and make an afternoon of it. I remember once being stuck at the Bugaloe during a good downpour and it was actually a lot of fun. One year it had been unusually rainy so it was the first (and only) time I packed an umbrella. I actually used it but felt silly for some reason using it in Aruba - however....I was the only dry one from our group. LOL!

    I think an afternoon at a beach bar, eating and drinking the day away. Moomba would offer great protection from the rain and all but the worst winds...

    We also always bring a few decks of cards and board games. We have gone to the movies. Always talk about going bowling, but it hasn't happened yet.

    Last time that happened when we were in Aruba we bought our timeshare. We have been lucky since then and haven't had a whole day ruined by rain. I do like the casino and drinking though. ;-).

    I think that is a great idea. The couples massage at the Ritz was amazing!
