Is there enough to do in Aruba to stay 8 days
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.
This year (our second visit-last year our first) we are staying 15 wonderful, glorious, sun filled days!!!
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!
Our first year we went for 7 days....2nd trip 10 days...3rd trip 10 days...4th trip 14 days....this time we'll be there for 11...tried to get a couple more but the flights didn't work out.
stlscooter....there is a BB party at the Amsterdman Manor every Monday from 5:00-7:00....drinks are two for one from 5:00-6:00...we'll be there on the 14th...everyone is welcome...the more the merrier.:-)
IMHO if you have to ask, then NO! for us yes!
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.
