    EXACTLY GERALD... EXACTLY! Make them jealous. Go have fun, get a great tan, and maybe you'll meet someone there to have fun with. I have seen many single ladies alone on the beaches.

    divi village and the divi properties in that area have a free tram shuttle.
    (not a tram like disney, but a tram like a golf cart with added seating for maybe 10 + people.

    it continues around the divi properties early morning til late night.

    you can grab it at divi village and ride it over to alhambra casino and marketplace.

    get out there, walk out back behind the alhambra and there is Casa Del mar and Manchebo and Aruba Beach club. (Matthews restaurant, french Steakhouse restaurant and at Aruba Beach Club is a great spot we love for breakfast and lunch is Torgugas!!)

    a tip to the driver is always appreciated.

    Hi, I was just talking to you on your restaurants thread. We have used the shuttle often when we have stayed at Divi Village. You can hardly walk around the resort for a few minutes without seeing one. You can also call the front desk and they will send one to pick you up. We have taken the shuttle to the casino area many times to eat at the restaurants around there. They will also take you close the the grocery stores (you just have to walk across the street) if you want to pick up some food and drinks to keep in the condo. We also use the bus and taxis for transportation. I don't know what you've heard about the taxis, but we have never had any problems. In fact, we have become friends with some of the taxi drivers, one in particular that everyone loves on this forum. But all of the others have always been very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate for one minute about using them if I were you.

    hatteras, thanks for the info.

    I'll put my faith in the cabs. And i've studied the fare sheet so ill know if the price isnt right. I hear alot about the bus and may have to give that a try one day. Just hard to know without having been there. Only one way to find out !!!

    Taxi service in Aruba is 24 ours a day, where ever you go they will call a taxi for you and do not forget your camera so when you go back you can show your friends your vacation, and where ever you go dress casual.

    cargo shorts might be considered "too casual"

    docker shorts or bermuda like shorts would be more appropriate for places like French Steakhouse and Madam Janette and Amadeus.

    also too, it is hot in aruba and cargos might be too warm due to their length and bulk.

    my husband always wears his cargos to aruba and from aruba.
    while there he wears either his bathing suit all day and evenings, khaki light brown or navy docker shorts. they are lightweight and comfortable.

    and he wears teva sandals with them.

    he is dressed pretty much like most of the other men of his age group.

    Sounds like I need to go buy some standard dockers shorts. So I should be able to wear the standard dockers shorts, polo shirt, tennis shoes to dinner most anywhere and be fine right? I figure they are not going to require khaki pants anywhere due to heat.

    I know this sounds stupid but is it best to tuck in polo shirt or is un-tucked generally ok?
