Aruba is a place of constant sunshine and warm trade winds, friendly people and fun shopping, great restaurants, luxurious spas, and magnificent beaches. And all are within walking distance of the Marriott complex!
Prices are American style where our dollar is worth a dollar and accepted everywhere, and we can still buy some duty free gifts and beautiful jewelry at great savings. People are very friendly, speak English as well as one or two additional languages, and create "A Happy Island" for all its visitors. We are wanted and welcome and it feels like home to me every time my plane lands. I am not alone in this as Aruba has the most repeat visitors of all the Caribbean islands put together! Once you go to Aruba, you come back to Aruba.
Although certainly not comprehensive, I have put together a list of useful info that I have learned throughout my many visits, as well as those of my observant clients, to this wonderful island. Please browse around and let me know if you have any questions or something to add.
Have a great trip and make many memories!
