    Your shortest stay and your longest stay?

    Every now and again I see a posting about someone heading to Aruba for a long weekend....maybe 3 or 4 days.

    I often wonder really how many of us have gone for a short period of time and what is the longest that you hav stayed on Aruba?

    Our shortest visit has been 7 nights and our longest was 19 nights.
    (One I was in Aruba for just 2 nights almost 40 years ago as a pre and post Bonaire trip)

    I think that 12 nights would be my ideal. (only because I begin having separation anxiety from my very old dog and cats)

    How about you?

    Our shortest was 7 nights and the most was 10 nights. We’ve found 9 nights to be our perfect number. Even at 9 nights I find myself getting a little itchy so we split our vacation between 2 resorts. This trip will be 6 nights Manchebo and 3 nights at the Renaissance.

    Shortest stay 7 days, longest 91 days. This coming year will be 86 days but 2021 will be shorter because we signed up with a friend for a cruise to Antartica.

    Our shortest stay was seven nights and we only did that once. From then we’ve extended every trip, with our longest being 38 nights. We hope to reach Robin and Stu status in the near future. Even with two trips this year, we’ll only total 68 nights.

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    Not only is 7 nights our shortest stay, it is also our most common length of stay.

    We've been going to Aruba, on and off, for almost 40 years and that duration of trip sees to suit us just fine. We may have a longer Aruba vacation at some point, but for now, a week there is okay for us.

    Got to remember too that we have to tack on an o/night in Toronto each way; an extra $300.00 to $400.00 added to our trip.

    For us the key to staying long is renting a 3 bedroom at gold coast which is almost as big as our home so we never feel cramped otherwise we would never stay as long as we do.
