    My trip 6/19 to 6/26

    Day 1 6/19

    At JFK 515 am for a 7am departure. Plane took off at 9am and arrived 130pm Aruba. Customs took 5 minutes. I went straight to agent and only 5 others there. I was first 5 people off plane. Baggage 10 minutes. At La Cabana 200pm and in room 220pm. What a miracle!

    Went down for last half hour of happy hour and dinner at islanders grill was quite good. Casino for 2 hours left $25 up and back to room.

    So glad to be in paradise!

    One thing I like to add. I found the selections at duty free airport very limited. I like rum and they did not have any Captain Morgan. Bacardi Oakheart is actually a lot better but they did not have that either. All they had was a 2 liter bottle of Bacardi white for $30 which is no bargain. I get it for $27 in the states before tax sometimes $25. They did have a big sale on Malibu Rum. I ended up paying $33 for a liter of Bacardi Oakheart at super foods which I thought was expensive.

    glad that you got settled into your room at lacabana early! i guess that the 2 hour delay at the beginning, became a non issue when you landed, breezed thru immigration and then got all checked in

    thanks so much for sharing your story ace and we look forward to your report.

    I especially want to hear of your review of the italian restaurant at Paradise Beach Villas!

    Enjoy

    Looking forward to your reports when you have a chance. Any special excursions or restaurants this trip? I'm also interested to know how you compare your stay at LaCabana to MVC (last year right?)
