Hi, Forum Members,

What a great site!

I'm Michelle from Santa Fe (we had a cold, cold winter) and I'm looking forward to my second trip to Aruba. My first trip, I stayed at the Renaissance. It was so quiet and peaceful there and I loved it, but I was told it wasn't the "real" Aruba. So I'm looking forward to seeing the real Aruba at Palm Beach this time, supposedly one of the best beaches in the world. I know I'm going to love it there too.

I'll be there for my birthday, which happens to be Memorial Weekend. I heard there's a concert series happening then on the island. Does anyone know if any of the concerts are close to Palm Beach or within walking distance?

Looking forward,
Michelle

Thanks for the link, ChuckiesDad. Those are the same things I'm wondering that I'd like to know before I buy a ticket.

Michelle,
Everything on the island is really close as the island is so small.
Taxis are cheap, or you could rent a car for the week or even a few days. The smaller cars are really cheap and then its pretty easy to get around.
Glad to know you enjoyed it enough to go back, take lots of pictures and post them when you get back so we can enjoy them with you...!!!!

Thanks, danadog56,

That makes me feel more comfortable about buying a ticket! I need to get to know my way around. Maybe I'll rent a car this time.

Thanks Andrea. As I have said, I just can't wait. Going to make sure this is a great vacation, as it is our 20th anniversary. My hubby was in the hospital last year in Aruba. He has had blood work done, and everything looks good, so we are good to go. Just gotta pack.:eek:
Be careful going to Florida and I will check out your "moving" updates when we get back.
Good Luck!:D

Have a wonderful birthday

Hi. My husband and I are traveling to Aruba for the first time June 4th - 11th. I've been looking at the Aruba site for months and there are so many activities to choose. How do you decide?

my suggestion is to surf around the site and take lots of time.

a big suggestion is to not to OVERDO.

give yourself lots of beach/pool time.
give yourself a good choice of restaurants.
pick a snorkel tour
and maybe a land tour.........

do not overdo.
tell us what you want to do?
do not be embarrassed to say I WANT TO LAY ON A BEACH ALL DAY.
where are you staying?

i will post some snorkel links in another post.

welcome to the forum.

Thank you Sunscreen. We went to the fest. last year to see Robin Thicke and Common, but my husband got sick and we had to go back to the hotel. We will try to go to Moomba's this year--that sounds like fun.
Thanks again!
Pat
