On the beach with my bubba mug filled with Margarita or Balashi
Excursions with kids
Will be in Aruba in Jan (have been twice before). 1st time rented a car and did our own island sightseeing, second time just relaxed by the beach/pool. This time we are contemplating an excursion. The two that caught my eye are: the jolly pirates and the submarine. We are two families, with 4 kids ages 4-9. Any suggestions?
i mean no disrespect to lisa's JP recommendation
i am just in disagreement
does the 4 yr old swim?
will he/she go into the ocean (life jacket on)?
my first thought was a 4 yr old would be too young for jolly.........but i am basing it on how my son was at age 4..........he could swim and stay afloat but not snorkel.
the jolly has the rope swing, food, beverage and snorkeling.
if that will be fine for your 4 yr old, i would say go for it.
the other kids, are they all going to be ok snorkeling from a boat?
i am sure they will be in lifejackets, but i forsee lots of mask adjustments making it quite difficult as everyone is bobbing around saying "my mask is leaking" or "my mask is fogged up" stuff like that.
it is a mighty expensive venture for all of you and i want to see folks get the most of it.
the kids' young ages to me is a concern.
submarine.............expensive too and does not last even an hour. a tremendous awesome experience, but it is short lived.
another option to consider would be a full day at depalm island?
food and beverage all inclusive
water park that is right in line for 4 - 10 yr olds
