Thank God I have only 25 days before I leave Aruba! I chose the island because of all those praises on this forum. I was expecting something out of this world. Oh well!
You have a feeling there are more cars here than people. The island stinks gasoline. Trade winds help but not much.
To see fish you actually have to go somewhere, like Malmock or other place. It is not that you walk into the water and see fish.
Restaurant meals and scuba dive operators are overpriced.
Bus drivers shout at you if you do not know your stop.
Those infamous Ling and Sons do not replace broken sun screen aerosol on the premises: it worked when you bought it thus you broke it
The place is boring. You rarely hear any music playing even from the hotels.
City is practically dead at night. No all-night pub roll.
Riviera Maya beats the place any time of the day or night.
On a brighter note groceries and alcohol are dirt cheap and I do not know what you guys complain about.
