thanks. I had pm'd shynda and he said I can just go to the townhome, log on to wifi, where is says wifi aruba, click it and then purchase it right from there. since he owns a townhome there I figure he should definitely know, lol. but either way, if there is no line at the airport kiosk, I may just purchase it from them and have them do it for me. and you're right, a $5 tip is nothing to insure its done right. Hey Shynda, if you are reading this, is that a good way to do it for the gold coast, lol? I can't believe the guy I rent from doesn't have wifi at his place. almost everyone who rents a townhome, apt, villa has wifi. he must be more technologically challenged then me & hubby, lol. even I would have wifi if I owned a place and rented it out.
