    Hello! Need some helpful advice.

    This forum has been so informative. I was wondering if anyone could share some tips on both transportation and cell communication for our upcoming trip! My first daughter of three getting married decided she would love nothing more than to get married in Aruba! So Feb 2022 they will! We have visited three times before and rented houses/Gold Coast once. We have 50 guests coming and all have rented places around Palm beach area since the wedding is at the Hilton. Other than taxis is there anyone you can hire that does driving to and from for maybe the week? There will be several that rent a car but we would really like to have a reliable option for people that don't so they could contact if needed a ride to places. We are trying to make things easy. Also what is the best kind of cell service we should be telling people about since we need to really stay in touch with many people that week. We used whatsup before but you need to be by wifi and wasn't always reliable. Usually we wouldn't care about staying connected but with all the plans that week we need to be able to get ahold of people. Any thoughts? Thanks a ton!!

    welcome Marianne to the aruba.com community forum

    I recommend that you should check with your cell provider for international pricing.
    I know that verizon is $10 a day.
    We bought a Setar SIM card and that gave us data that expired after a month.
    (we were only there 2 weeks)
    We use the same Setar Sim card every visit.

    You may want to contact Bully for transportation.
    If he cannot assist, he will put you in touch with someone who can.

    Email. Bullytaxi79@hotmail.com

    Also consider FoFoti. You can google them to get their info.

    Welcome to the forum Marianne. We have T-Mobile and it is free in Aruba for text and data. Calls are very reasonably priced, you roam on Setar. Also search in the top right corner in "Getting Around on Aruba" for tour operators and look through the "Weddings and Honeymoon" for others that have moved massive amounts of people.
