When was your first Aruba trip? 1995 on recommendation from a friend who was travel agent. Flew down on Aruba Air (miss them) Last time whole family was together before college forthe kids.
Where did you stay? La Cabana,actually they misplaced our reservation and put us in one on the time share units in the back.
What did you do? A lot of beach time, kids were water babies, remember the clam shell shade things on Eagle Beach.Walked over to Hog’s Breath Saloon and did the mini golf thing. Rented ajeep and did our own tour, let my son drive the jeep, even though he wasn’tsupposed to (under age to drive a rental). Went all over and it was amazing.Then went on a guided jeep tour to see if we missed anything.I remember a sign in my rear view mirror, on the rough side that said something to the effect. Do Not Enter, active firing range.Not to worry we already drove through it. Had dinner at Talk of the Town one night. Back then we all were dressed up,my son and I had jackets and slacks on and my wife and daughter had casual dresses on. Liked it so much we arranged to extend the stay another two days and it only cost an additional $100 total to change our flight back.
What brought you back? Second time and every year since 2000 (Palm Beach). The people, weather, atmosphere, and the restaurants over the years. Meeting people from this board. It feels like a second home. I once figured it out and it was actually cheaper in Aruba then doing a week renting a house on the Jersey Shore for a week in August.
See you soon. !!!
