Many of us that visit aruba, do so in the summer.
Lots of the summer visitors are subject to the question...YOU, go to ARUBA during the Summer....WHY?
Well, i just spoke with an old friend who spent a fortune at the Cape and here is her story.
(Moral of the story is go to Aruba)
They rented a place in Harwich 3 blocks from the beach. Rental 20 days $6000.
They had to bring their own bedding/linens.
3 children ages 11-16 and mom and dad.
Traveled from Peekskill NY.
RAIN and cold every day. therefore no beach.
therefore having to spend extra $$ on entertaining the kids.
Movies. they spent $400+ in movie theater and blockbuster
Food they spent over $2000 on groceries, restaurants and fast food.
Other forms of entertainment for the kidlets: bowling, mall, and taking 2 day trips to boston and 1 day trip to the vineyard. $1500+
The mom, who is my friend, tells me her best guesstimate is that they spent about $10K on this vacation from hell.
How much would it cost for a 2 week stay including air at an all inclusive in aruba such as the Tamarijn?
air from JFK to aruba?
accomodations at an all inclusive?
a few excursions?
.........aruba........the place to go year round.
