    For those lookin to visit aruba i grew up in aruba, want my advice?

    In the Aruban language bon bini na mi felis island, welcome to my happy island. Don’t go out and shop for fancy tourist outfits, just bring a few everyday items and a dress up outfit if that’s your bag. Buy what ever else you need from the Aruban fashion. I grew up here; all I ever needed was a sport shirt, shorts, sandals and a straw hat to go anywhere on the island. Come on down and be yourself, relax, kick back, don’t plan anything just go with the flow, you will never forget it.

    That is exactly what I love about Aruba. I'm able to pack light with a few bathing suits, shorts and tees. There is no place like Aruba for true relaxation. It's the perfect place to visit.
