We are taking our first trip to Aruba in a few months and staying at the Manchebo Beach Resort. This is my first post on the Aruba forum, and I have tried to do some research before asking any redundant questions. If you could please look at my information and either comment or correct me on it, it would be most appreciated.
-We are taking US Airways, so the departure tax should already be included in the ticket price.
-The hotel is about 7 miles from the airport and should cost the two of us about $22.00 USD for a one way transport.
-Places to eat within walking distance of Manchebo include Pizza Bobs, Elliots, Tortuga Grille, Matthews, Pirates Nest, Screaming Eagle, Turtles Nest, Frangiapannis, Dushi Bagels, Duncan Donuts,Subway, and Shon Gecko.
Are there any good "local" places to eat near the hotel? Someone in another post mentioned a trailer in the low rise section across the beach from the Swiss Chalet (?) which serves lunch from 12-2.
-The local bus leaves from right outside the casino with one direction going to the high rise section, and the other to Oranjestad. Can the bus take you to any other places of interest?
-It takes approximately 40 minutes to walk the beach to the high rise section(?) Is there anything worth walking to in the opposite direction?
Thank you again for any information, and we look forward to our first trip to Aruba!
