My husband and I are considering a trip to Aruba. We are debating on whether or not to do the AI at the resort. The difference in price per day in $285 which I think is a little steep. I really don't see us spending that much on food and drinks. I was hoping that maybe the resort was close enough to shopping that we could pick up beer, etc for drinks during the day rather that paying the premium prices at the resort. Thanks in advance for any advise.
