    I love the whole island, so it's hard to choose, but if I have to then I would say baby beach & the natural bridge area

    Hi Nic44

    Sorry for the late reply, but I just read this today. I brought a couple of bags, one from Gucci (for my daughter), and one from Louis Vuitton (for self). Brought some shades, a couple of outfits annnnnnnnnnnd my husband brought me a bracelet from one of the jewlery stores on the back near the piers.

    Speaking of they are really building up that area....nice restaurants and shops are opening there.

    ....speaking of .....what area? On the back....what? I'm thinking you mean the area downtown near where the ships come in??

    Shopaholic,
    You were lucky...we usually always go in November and a couple of years ago we got there on Sunday and it rained until Saturday...the day before we were leaving to come home. When I say it rained everyday, I mean everyday all day for 7 days.....we even tried to put our suits on and go into the water....so cold just standing on the beach I had goosebumps and had to wrap in a towel. It was awful...spent a lot of time at the hotel bar drinking and eating...shopped and gambled......had fun in spite of the weather but hope it NEVER happens again.....
    ARUBA....HOME AWAY FROM HOME
