Aruba has given our group, who we call the “29ers”, the opportunity to meet each years and renew our friendship at Paradise Beach Villas. It has been like a second home where your friends become family. Our group comes from many destinations and we also communicate and visit each other during the years.

The “29’ers” started 5 years ago when 8 couples decided we needed to clear to choose one day during our stay to have a special activity, our first year we went on the Beach Pearl followed the next year with an all day tour of the island and dinner at Zeerover. Our third year found us enjoying a private concert followed by a wine and cheese party at the home of a local family. Last year a had dinner at the Marriott Stellaris listening to an evening of singer Amy.

In honor of our 5th anniversary, as a group, one of our group members is sponsoring a dinner at Paradise Beach Villas and in addition one couple is celebrating their 30th consecutive visit to Aruba and their 60th wedding anniversary.

When we hear Welcome home we all feel we are home on “One Happy island” we love Aruba and look forward to visiting for many more years.
