    NYC, LI too
    I'm on my way in 3 weeks for vacation!

    What's to do other than frying on the beach?
  2. Maybe renting a moped could be fun. Or rollerblading, yachting, scuba, photography... Never been there myself.

    Or sitting there and doing nothing. Which is what I'd be doing.

    Take windsurfing or kitesurfing lessons, it's among the best places in the world to learn those sports. My wife went there about 5 years ago, and loved it. My brother's been there a bunch of times. It's a little too far away for me to do a week vacation comfortably. Casinos are a big deal there too, as well as late night Euro disco action.

    PM me if you want more specifics. Google on rec.windsurfing too if you want restaurant recommendations and the like. Have fun. :cool:

    you are a lucky man. I've never been, but my girl has many times. She always describes Aruba as perfect.

    Windsurfing is THE watersport down there as its usually pretty windy.

    I prefer to sleep on a raft in the ocean. For me, tropical vacations are all about parking my a$$ on the beach & not moving unless I need another mudslide.
  6. i went a couple years back. i wouldn't know what to do other than drink on the beach. i was a stress case at the time, and i needed a quiet vacation with plenty of beer, beach and sunshine. i got it.

    beautiful place. you'll love it.
