Trips out on Aruba

Hi we're travelling to the Tam in Aruba in May this year would like to know what trips are best and which to avoid. We're all inclusive, but thinking about budgeting for some opportunities to get out and about.

Check at the Tam when you get there about free excursions that they offer. The one that we did and which we loved was biking down to Boca Catalina for a morning of snorkeling. You get there before the snorkel cruises, so the water is clear and there aren't a lot of people around. They even took a small group of us out to the sunken ship, Attilla, but I would only recommend doing this if you are a fairly strong swimmer. Otherwise, you can stay closer to shore where the reef is and see some incredible fish and coral. The Tam provides the bikes, the snorkel gear, guides, a truck to carry all your gear, drink and snacks at no charge to you. When we were there last April the tour was offered only on Tuesdays and you had to sign up a day in advance.

We did not pay to go on any excursions on the island, but we did rent a car for one day so we could drive to the caves in the national park and to drive to Baby Beach for more snorkeling. We also had time to go back to Boca Catalina. This was a worthwhile expenditure for us as it didn't cost that much and we were able to easily get a rental car at the Tam at their Hertz desk there.
