    We are travelling to Aruba in April 2023 and have been debating renting a car or opting to get around by taxi/bus instead. Our previous visit there we did opt for car rental for the duration and it was quite reasonable but since travelling with another couple this time and since we are staying 3 minutes from Eagle Beach and near Superfood store perhaps we don’t need a car? Can you advise how frequently the bus runs from Eagle Beach to Palm Beach or a link to the bus schedule?

    if you can .....rent the car!
    the conveniences and independence it provides is miraculous
    the other couple may want to rent too, but that may be redundent.
    you already have the idea of what its like driving in Aruba.....waiting for the bus is hot and annoying. (imo)

    Thanks for that advice, maybe we will rent a car for part of the time there then at least. I’ll check prices and rental companies

    Hans at Tropic Car Rental is top-notch. The cars are in good shape and the prices are fair. If you rent the car for over a week, they come and wash it during the middle of your rental for you. It might sound crazy, but book something as soon as you have firm dates, even out in 2023.
