    Palm Beach, Arashi Beach and Manchebo Beach
    Aruba has incredible water. I love the vibe in Playa Del Carmen but having to take a shower with my mouth clinched shut is a much larger annoyance than one would think.

    The beach of course!
    Been to at least a dozen islands including Hawaii and Aruba is my favorite. My top 10 reasons for coming to Aruba and buying a timeshare here...

    1) I can drink the water from the tap
    2) prices are reasonable
    3) great snorkeling/ beaches
    4) Love the climate (low rainfall, no hurricanes)
    5) the restaurants are most excellent
    6) Overall feeling of safety
    7) Not a lot of obnoxious drunk college kids (as in Cancun)
    8) 5 1/2 hour flight from Chicago
    9) Didn't have to learn a new language to visit here
    10) There aren't people jumping out of trees as I pass by trying to get me to buy drugs (This has happened to me many times in Jamaica)

    Aruba is the only island I've ever been to. So many people have told me not to bother going to other islands as I'm sure to be disappointed! I love the warmth, both of the sun and of the welcoming people of Aruba. And many of the items already mentioned.

    Arashi Beach, Hyatt, Radisson, Shopping, Flea Market, Downtown, Palm Beach, Everything
    Here's an example. I asked a local woman if she knew of internet cafes so I can print our boarding pass. Lisa had called me (Radisson wedding planner) and was leaving for vacation so couldn't print them. So this sweet local woman not only told me about three places downtown, she actually drew me a map with landmarks. Seriously, who else does that? And with map in hand, found all three. Now how can u not love these people. So Saturday we can no print them out & go have pizza at Pizza and More

    Been to Maui, Playa del Carmen, Mazatlan, Cancun, Curacao, St. John, BVIs, St. Thomas, St. Kitts and Aruba. I didn't have a bad time at any of those places. I've been to Aruba now 25 times and the weather was the biggest factor for us. We really started traveling to a lot of these places when my kids were very little. We found the odds of being stuck in a room with kids due to weather was less in Aruba. Now it just feels like home.
