    Bug spray is really needed most places here at the moment, but you can buy it almost everywhere in Aruba, so no need to bring it.

    Let's hope so, leaving on Friday for first ever visit. Wouldn't want the little buggers to make it my last. 3,000 miles is a long way to go for a spoiled holiday.
    An update on weather/mossies would be appreciated.

    We will be on the island Fri. Hubby is a magnet for anything that bites. Hope the tradewinds have helped.
