Aruba bound!!!

My husband and I are heading back for our 4th stay in Aruba! I am really looking forward to visiting aruba again! Aruba was our first caribbean island and since that time we have traveled to many other islands, and though many of those islands were very nice, Aruba is still our favorite. I didn't want it to be like that, but it just is. I think some of it has to do with the people on the island. I may have some questions as I am realizing from reading the posts in this forum how much I still do not know. I heard that some things have changed in the three years since I have last been there. Construction in the little store area by the casino by Costa Linda and in Oranjestad. Does anyone know if this has been completed? I think in one of the posts someone was saying that in Oranjestad it was not, but that was several months back.

I was just in Aruba and the construction by the casino appeared to be finished. Downtown, it looks like there is still some maybe on the side streets but I did not pay too much attention.

Have a great trip!

Hi,

Just got back from the costa linda.. Yes, the area by the Costa Linda is all done. Downtown side streets are a mess with construction.

Thanks. We will be visting in three months, maybe more of it will be completed in Oranjestad by then. I bet it will look really nice when it is completed.

The area near the Alhambra Casino has been completed for awhile now. There a few new shops, a couple of new restaurants, a wine/piano bar, and a nice little mini mart that sells food and liquor/wine, etc.

Construction downtown is still ongoing and the trolley is running although it seems on a limited basis yet.

We go to Aruba twice a year and there are always changes on every trip - some changes we like and some we don't but that's progress for you.
