    Its not a water park but Baby Beach is a great place for kids of all ages. Its like a small lagoon with very shallow water, white sand beaches and no waves. The water is less than 3 feet deep in most places and no more than 2 along the sand. There is an area in the middle near the rocks that is 10-12 feet deep where you can snorkel and see a large variety of fish. There is a restaurant there with a Flintstones theme and good food.

    We took our grandchildren there in August 2012 and they loved it. It is far cheaper than De Palm Island. Bully drove us there. I think it may have been HIS first trip there. If you are driving yourself you may get lost There weren't very good signs.

    As Andrea has mentioned there are only two parks. De Palm is great but really how many times can one go. I took the family to Aruba Vacation Park , It was ok, nothing us Americans are use to as far as adventure parks, I think for the kids a few hours of fun no matter where they go is a great time. At least they can say I went there. As far as the go carts behind the industrial part by super markets, I give it thumbs up. The kids had a great time in August and even though one go cart failed they gave more time to my kids on the track and fixed the situation right away. I give it a 9 rating and a must go if you have kids. In Michigan we have a go cart place but nothing like Aruba, my kids felt as if there were free on the track and loved every second. My oldest son was asked in drivers training if he had any lessons on driving and his answer was I am a professional go cart rider. Had to laugh...
    Capturing the passion and love of your special day in paradise.
