    Hello + Planning our 3rd Trip to Aruba

    Hi Everyone:

    Although I have been a member of this forum since July 2018, I have never posted. I want to thank all of you for your posts as they have been very helpful with all of my planning.

    Our 3rd trip will be in three weeks (January 8-15). We are staying at the Hilton, same as our previous two trips.

    Our first trip was a cruise stop in 2013 and we fell in love with the island and we promised each other that we would return. Then, life got in the way and our second trip wasn't until September 2017 as a couple. We arrived on a Saturday and on Wednesday of our trip I took a bad fall and broke my wrist. I do have to add that the medical attention that I received at the hospital was first rate. The fall took place at 8:00 AM and we were on the beach by 1:00 PM, the accident did not ruin our vacation at all. I purchased a plastic sleeve that covered my cast at the medical supply store so I was still able to enjoy going into the ocean and the pool. We brought our adult children and future son in-law with us in September 2018 and we are now eagerly looking forward to our fourth trip.

    We live in upstate NY, just outside Saratoga Springs and the temperature here now is in the single digits. We are hoping for and looking forward to warm, sunny days!

    Thanks for the read.

    Ellen

    Thank you all for your welcomes! We have only stayed at the Hilton for each of our trips. It is a lovely property and within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. On our last trip we walked all the way to Asrashi Beach - we love to explore!
