    SUPER EXCITED!! Going to Aruba next Week need your recommendations!!

    Hi All!!
    Going to beautiful Aruba after 2 long years. I am super excited, this is a surprise bday vacay from hubby. This is the first time we are traveling to Aruba without our precious kiddos. I am hoping to have the time of my life with hubby.

    Where can we go for happy hour, live music, best food and entertainment around the island.

    Any places with great dancing music in the island?
    Best jeep tour to the natural pool.
    Any other tour recommendations?

    Where can we rent an economic car, just for 2-3 days?
    Cell phone service? Any ideas how can I communicate to the US?

    Is only the 2 of us, we are staying the first night at a High rise hotel and the of the week low rise, we are planning to rent a car for just 2 days or so. Please feel free to send me your recommendations.

    I greatly appreciate your help.

    welcome back
    http://www.aruba.com/forum/f38/ check out getting around category for rental car Tropic is highly recommended as are Wheels 2 Go and many others.

    http://www.aruba.com/forum/f12/ restaurants lots of restaurants in the hi rise and in the lo rise area. what kind of restaurants are you looking for? are you looking for inexpensive casual? or romantic ocean side dining?

    cell phone? what did you do on your last visit to aruba? if you own a smart phone the i recommend a SIM card purchase at Digicel or Setar at the airport. see this thread Using cell/internet on the island?

    http://www.aruba.com/forum/f10/ activities. Depalm and ABC have good tours.

    Hi! What an awesome bday surprise!

    There are so many options for everything you are looking for - Moomba Beach is great, the high rise area has a few clubs for dancing & club type music or piano bar and the hard rock cafe has live music. In the low rise area LaCabana is a ton of fun for happy hour from 4-6.

    If you use Facebook Messenger both the audio & video calling feature is great. The quality is amazing & it is free over wifi. Skype is another great option and is very inexpensive to contact those who are not on FB.

    typically tropic is sold out within 6 or 8 months

    he owns less than 30 vehicles and is very popular.

    we were not able to rent thru him for our upcoming trip.
