Aruba was amazing. One of the best things to do is the ABC tour they have a full day and a half day. I was so exhausted after the half day it was completely worth it and anyone who goes must to do the ABC tour or you will regret it! I also stayed at a beautiful Airbnb which I plan to book again! The vibe on the island is extremely relaxed they call it one happy Island. Virtually crime-free, with a small exception which they will tell you about, everyone was so friendly and helpful and they speak multiple languages so it's pretty inclusive. I promise if you go to Aruba you won't regret it! Stop saying you're going to do it and just book it already!

I’m just off the intersection of Fokkerstraat and Guterberg Straat, or Beligie and Arendstraat, or even Wilhelmina and Nieuw Straat. I’m drinking a kopstoot—near-frozen jenever gin with a beer chaser (if I was a real traditionalist, I’d have poured a shot of gin into a fluted glass and topped it off with beer). It’s 88 degrees F, and I have a picnic hamper full of stuffed cheese, bitterballen and little meat pies. I am en route to the white sands of Eagle Beach, trying to decide between diving one of two shallow-water WWII-era wrecks. Where am I?

A number of outdoor adventures that are good for couples or family. Nice golf courses. Very friendly locals. The best entrance and exit airport experience ever for American citizens. We went in February and the weather was super. We stayed at Divi Golf Resort and they were very accommodating. They even drop you off within a block or two from grocery stores and pick you back up later. Small island and easy to get around. Set prices for taxis.
