Hi everyone,

first i'd like to say how happy I am to have found this forum!
Myself and my partner Matthew are off to Aruba on the 27th May for two weeks, and we're both soooo excited!! We're staying at the Riu Palace hotel - has anyone stayed there? Or have any useful information/tips about the hotel?

We're looking for a few general ideas if possible - (things/places we absolutely can't miss in Aruba!) and some info about some nice beach bars/pub type places that we can go to in the evening? Some fun and laid back places where we can have a nice cocktail.

Also, are there any particular fun snorkel boat exursions anyone would reccomend? (with music and rum punch included ideally ha ha ) We like snorkelling and hopefully want to get in a few boat trips!

Any other info would be greatly appreciated! As I can see you guys know your stuff thank you!! xx
