Oranjestad from 7 - 2pm, time to catch bus to Arushi return?

Hi, we are on MSC cruise and only in Aruba from 7am - 2pm. Would we have enough time to catch a bus to Arushi or Boco Catalina for snorkeling and get back to the ship on time??

Much appreciated!

Best source of information on all things Aruba Bus is the Arubus website.

absolutely figuring you catch a bus at around 8:30 am and a bus back at around noon..........you will have sufficient cushion getting back in plenty of time!

follow that link daka630 provided www.arubus.com

Thanks so much - I have checked out the bus schedule but was still a bit nervous in case buses do not run on time etc....

A nice fall back option are the private white vans that can be found in the rear of the main bus terminal - about the same $$ - they make the same run as the public bus.

I started using them on my last two visits, no problems, very fair rates

One more reason I Love Aruba - 11 trips and never felt like I’ve been gouged/taken advantage of.

Thanks guys - another question! Is the snorkeling better at Arushi/Boco Catalina or Baby Beach?

Baby beach, last time with guests there were sea turtles coming and going, eating seaweed. Great pictures and go pro footage.
