Hello: We will be traveling to Aruba for the first time on June 25. It will be my husband, two girls- 11 and 12, and me. We will be celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. We arrive on June 25 and will be staying at the Marriott Aruba hotel. We will then move to a condo at Marriott Surf Club on June 26 for a week, and them move to the Renaissance Ocean Suites for two nights (trip will last from June 25 through July 6). Here is a list of activities that have been planned and confirmed-
- sunset cruise through Black Melody/Blue Melody
- sail, snorkel, swim through Jolly Pirates
- kayak and snorkel through Aruba Kayak Adventures
- private jeep tour through Aruba VIP tour
- water sports through Fun 4 every 1
We can not wait for this trip! Only 34 more days until we hit the beach! Any other ideas?
My family was making fun of me last week because I was talking about planning some things. We've never planned anything except the rental car. I had to remember that Aruba is where we leave the scheduling calendar at home and "go with the flow" because it's so easy to do that there. It took us a couple visits to learn to relax (especially me). Now the kids have learned to chill out.
We do make a few restaurant reservations within a day or so of arriving.
I have a tip for the Black Pearl for you. Bring a little container with some tissues in it. They will share some sand dollar sea shells they dive for with you if you ask them. They are so fragile though- hence the container. We write the date on them and have a nice collection at home. They are so cool. Tip #2, save room for the grilled cheese sandwich! We love the Black Pearl and have gone every year with them.
