    Advice that you'd give a 1st time Aruba visitor?

    What would you advise a novice Aruba visitor?

    My advice would be to not schedule too many activities.
    THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind? SIDTM

    Pack half of what you think you'll need!
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!

    Don’t over schedule as you will return soon. Do get away from the tourist area to see the rest of the island, especially the north shore. Try the local food.

    Take half the clothes you think you'll need... and twice the money!

    Pretty much echoing what is said above. Relax, don't schedule too much, don't overpack, don't be in a hurry.

    Bring lots of small bills for tips, and don't pay attention to the weather forecast. It always says that it will rain!
