Hi all.
First off, awesome website and forum. It's been a huge help for researching and planning our trip.
My wife and I will be in Aruba, staying at the Hyatt, from March 12-18. It would be great if we were able to meet up with someone while we're there. We love meeting new people and trying new excursions, going to local hangouts, etc.
We love playing beach volleyball, but it doesn't appear Aruba has much of a volleyball scene. I'm sure we'll have a blast either way.
Very Excited.

The Hyatt was where it all started for DW and me..... We'd always have coffee in the morning in that magnificent lobby and drinks before bed. You chose a first class hotel..... Welcome 'aboard' the Aruba Community Forum!

It’s always nice to see new people posting!! I am sure you will enjoy Aruba. The Hyatt is a beautiful property and convenient to a lot of dining and shopping spots.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.
We're looking at 3 different activities:

- Scuba diving the sunken ship
- Party Bus
- Caves/National Park exploring

Any preferences or feedback about these?

using the Search in the upper right hand corner..........type in: Jane Sea; Antilla; (for wreck dives) kukoo kunuku for party bus; arikok caves

my husband, son and i have scuba'd at the jane sea and antilla ...both nice dives. we went with unique water sports.

we did the party bus many years ago and i can still feel the hangover headache ;) it was fun and a nice mix of ages. food mediocre at best.

caves.....husband and son played in the caves a number of years ago. we also have gone thru the arikok a couple of times. (we were in a sedan on paved road)


my big suggestion is that if you are a huge beach fan........do not schedule too many activities that take away from beach time.

see the "activities/sports" and the "nightlife" categories/subforums.

My husband played some beach volleyball a couple years ago at Holiday Inn, but I don't remember seeing anyome playing on our last visit. the Marriott Surf Club sometimes has games in the afternoon. Both of these games would be a quick walk on the beach from they Hyatt.

Welcome to the forum! There is usually a pick-up volleyball game at the Surf Club around 3:30 or 4 most afternoons.

Awesome! Thanks for that info. And I agree, we will probably spend most of the time on the beach. We do tend to get a little stir crazy if we're doing the same thing, so we'll probably look into one or two activities.

We’ll be arriving the day your leaving. Would loved to have connected. We love Aruba. Try the sunset cruise on the catamaran.
We had such a good time that night. Hope you have a great experience in Aruba.

Walt is the volleyball game open to anyone or just guests of the surf club? I would not intrude but if allowed it would be fun to play at some point.

I don't play, but a friend that goes with us does. I don't think there is any rule stating only guests can participate. There certainly isn't anyone checking IDs or room keys. The only caveat is a guest has to check out the ball.

Darn. Would have been fun.
We did the sunset cruise in Cabo one year and it was pretty fun, so that might be an option.
Thanks
