    Aruba's hidden gems....what are yours?

    I decided to start a tread on Aurba's hidden gems...things you don't normally read/hear could be anything. food, sightseeing...

    My first one is Casa Tua downtown. Easy walking distance from the Rennaissance, great food, sangria, outstanding pizza. No lines like high rise area. Don't know if many people know it exsists.

    Rennaissance private island
    1)Headed north and up past all the hotels and just found a beach area with no one around and sat and watched the sunset from the sand. The essentials we brought were: Beach towels, 1 bottle white wine, corkscrew, 2 glasses, 2 granny smith apples, gouda cheese, a knife, and some crackers. Wonderful!

    2)On the next trip, we want to see the sunrise from the lighthouse (if I can get up).
    The heck with a countdown calendar, we're in Aruba until May 27!!!!!

    Watching from the sidelines as the Reverend Gibson performs a wedding/renewal of vows ceremony.

    Having breakfast with Charlie (though this is no longer possible).

    Going for a ride through the cunucu with Mrs. 44, an ice-cold Coca-Cola, and Old 918.

    Watching sunrise at the anchor on the southeast end of the island.

    A dip in the water with Mrs. 44 at the little beach in Savaneta, particularly on a mid-week morning when the place is empty.

    A nice meal at Casa Vieja or Pueblito Paisa with friends who visit the island when they can.

    agree about watching the weddings, last year when we were on island for 4 weeks we were fortunate enough to watch 2 "from the sidelines"

    Divi links, pool, beach, lighthouse, Arikok National Park, etc.
    Palm Beach Refreshments which is down the road from Wendy's (on the same strip as Linda's and Bingo's). Great, inexpensive breakfasts and lunches. Mainly all locals. Owner is super nice and friendly. We go there at least 2-3 times each trip.
