Many day trips, boat rentals, scuba/snorkeling have websites and offer the opportunity to book in advance. There are also options to purchase through hotel or travel agent. What is the better deal? buying in advance or waiting till Im in aruba to take advantage of any specials/deals. Im staying at the Marriot Resort and Stellaris Casino

I think it's an individual decision. We prefer to book when we get there, but if the discount is important to you, you may want to book ahead of time.

There are a lot of activities but we also like to relax and play it by ear...and vacation is one time we do not like to be on a schedule.

If you arrange tours through the hotel concierge, you will most likely pay a higher fee. The extra money is paid as a commission to the booking agent.

If you are taking a laptop, book your tours while you are there and get the discount that is offered on the website.

Hi SuperBunches,

Good idea .......we don't usually take our laptop with us on holiday, but may do this time to get the discounted prices on trips.
