Definitely....you'll probably find yourself booking a longer visit if you return. We've found one week is just not long enough.

I agree with Get Away. We started going for one week, then extended it to two a couple of years ago. We find it gives us a great balance of beach time and active time.

My brother and I extended our normal stay of 7 days to 11 this year. I'll have my feet in the sand next Friday!

We usually sit on the beach all day, what we like to do. This year we are doing 12 nights in Dec./Jan. and 21 nights starting 2/28/10. We are also doing a 16 night cruise in Oct. which of course stops in Aruba. We can't get enough....

I honestly thought we would be bored out of our gourds the first time we went to Aruba. After all, it's just beaches and casinos, right? And we don't gamble.

Heck, NO. One week is not enough. Next summer, we're shooting for at least ten days. When the kids are out of the house, I want to MOVE there.

If you go, I hope you will feel the same way.

Aruba was actually our first Caribbean destination in '04...long story behind that trip. Honestly, the magic of falling in love all over again, the sea and every part of that vacation always reminds me it first happened in Aruba.....there must be someting in the water. ;-)
