Aruba Site Visit 5/22/10

Recommended Posts

I will take any information you have for Aruba! I am actually just starting to look into things to do and places to eat for my fiancé and I when we go to Aruba for our 10 day weddingmoon at the Westin.

 

Do you have any other site visit reviews for Aruba (I tried to search but didn’t come up with anything)?

 

PS – Thanks for the list of things to do in the other recent thread for Aruba! I heard great things about Kukoo Kunuku.

Thanks so much for the information! That's why I like the Westin it gives you the option of AI or not. I wanted to give my guests the ability to choose for themselves. We will definitely go out and check Aruba out and I here so many great things about the food too!

 

Yes, I heard of the Tattoo Party Boat! It is on my Things to Do List.

Maureen - quick question for you. What's the deal with currency? Everywhere that I read says that US$ are widely accepted as well as credit cards and travelers checks. What is the best way to handle $$ to avoid fees and ripoffs by cc companies and banks? I would greatly appreciate your advice :)

Pretty much everywhere will accept USD's and also be able to give you change in USD's so there is no worry about getting the wrong change because of it being in florins. Most major credit cards are accepted everywhere as well. You will have to call your credit card company or bank to find out exactly what international fees they will charge. It is a good idea to call them before you leave anyways to let them know you will be using your card outside the country so they don't block the charges for security reasons.

I leave this Saturday and cannot wait to be back on that island. I only wish I was able to stay longer!!!
Thank you for confirming all this! We are leaving for Aruba next Tuesday so I gotta pack!!!! YAY!!! Enjoy your trip :)

I have the VZ Storm 2 and didn't even think of bringing it. It's probably less expensive to use the hotel phone. Or buy one of those calling cards or disposable phones where you just buy minutes. I wonder if they have those in Aruba.
