    We have entered the "Unofficial slower season"

    Welcome to the slower Aruba traveling season.
    Now thru right before Thanksgiving and then the Monday after Thanksgiving thru Dec 20.
    Slower because the kidlings are back to school, parents are back to work, grandparents are back to providing daycare/babysitting

    However, if you are able to "sneak away" this is an absolutely perfect time to be in Aruba.
    The crowds have disappeared (see sentence #2 )
    The weather is dependable.
    The Caribbean Sea water along Aruba's beaches are incredibly warm.
    Restaurant week is coming up.
    Hugely discounted timeshare rental rates.

    Do it...........find child care/baby sitters, kennel the pets, head off to the airport!

    I'd love to give Aruba a try during the slower season. However, airline prices keep our travels closer to home, so we will be enjoying the slower season along the Outer Banks, NC, next week instead. It is very nice and relaxing, but not the same as the beautiful caribbean waters.

    It is so awesome, every day there are less and less people here at Surf Club. It's the reason we come at this time every year. I would estimate occupancy here at 50 percent or less...

    Great idea, I think I'll start packing now. We'll be going in March but I could very easily be talked into going in a couple of weeks.
    Next Aruba trip in

    In the pool.
    This will be the earliest we've been down in low season. Looking forward to it!

    We are here right now and have always loved the month of Sept. No reservations needed. Even popped into Wacky Wahoo last Thursday at the last minute - no reservations needed and no wait for a table. Love it - can go anywhere at any time.

    We stayed at the Surf Club in September a few years ago and it was not crowded at all. We enjoy September and October on the island because it is less crowded. Easier to get a low cost timeshare unit as well. That being said, most of our trips have been in May before school gets out and it is about the same people wise. The exception to that was in 2013 and 2014 when we took our GD and GS there for their high school graduation gift. We went in June those 2 years.
