    As far as jeans in Aruba, i agree its hot but if you look at the locals, they all wear jeans so who am I to judge. And thong bathing suits, i think its a cultural thing among Europeans and South Americans. They all wear them regardless of their shape. Just like Americans love to wear shorts and they are overweight. As i say, whatever floats your boat.

    1. The Happy Flow Line is always closed every time I arrive on the island.
    2.People that wear socks and sandals to the beach.
    3.Arguments and near fights over chairs by the pool or palapas on the beach.
    4.Having to get up extra early in the morning to book a palapa on the beach.
    5.How far in advance you need to make reservations for Wacky Wahoos.
    6.swim suit and swim short choices that some people make.
    7.Fellow guests assuming that I work at the resort and proceed to give me drink orders or inform me that they need new towels.
    8. The bratty behavior of some visitors while on the island.
    9. Hotels that claim to be near to the beach, when they are located on the other side of the highway.

    People who litter the beach. We visit because we love the beaches so be responsible and pick up after yourself.

    you would not have believed the "beach litterers" at Reflexions.
    they were flipping bottle caps right onto the sand......cigarette butts too.
    were these people brought up at the dump?

    It’s something I will never understand!!! I will say the beach in front of Manchebo was really clean.

    Women in 2 piece bathing suits and there belly overhang hides the bottom(or at least I presume there is a bottom under there). The jeans always has my hubby and I shaking our heads. People who bring their “well behaved children” to a romantic setting restaurant and then totally ignore them kicking sand,running around and ruining everyone else’s dinner. People talking loudly on the beach or playing loud music on the beach. I don’t care to hear your drunken banter or listen to your crappy Muzak. But then again I am lucky to be in Aruba and I try to just relax and be happy!

    People who talk on their cell phones nonstop on the beach. We always seem to end up near at least 1 every trip.
    Someone else already mentioned entitled guests - we all paid to be here, your vacation is not more important than mine.
