I love Aruba. One of my favorite beaches. It is ACTION 24/7. It is a quite more laid back kinda vacation place. If you want great food and to relax it is the place to go. The bigger hotels have gambling and things like that but the smaller places do not offer as much. The people were great and it is a very clean place to visit.
My Boss loves Aruba. It has virtually no crime (despite the recent happenings) In fact she like it so much we plan to take a company trip there when we can afford it. The pictures she took there are breathtaking. I would go if I was you. Have fun!
