This is our first time to Aruba, and I am so glad we found this forum. Everyone has been most helpful. We have now made our reservations for our trip in April, flights are booked and we will be staying at Oceania. It was much more than what we had initially budgeted for, but I'm hoping we will be happy with our decision. The location was a super plus! We are renting through Econo Car( I never heard back from Hans), so I hope the rental will be okay. We were going to rent through Tropic, but I guess he is very busy. Also, since my hubby fishes, I think an intermediate size might be better anyway. Fingers crossed!
