Our party of five arrived on Monday, June 9th. We had arranged for an airport transfer from Marco through Wix Tours. He was waiting at the airport with a welcome sign. He loaded our luggage and we were off the LaCabana. I had asked him about stopping at the SuperFoods. He showed us the path to walk there and said it would be cheaper for us to walk than have him wait for us to shop. We bought snacks and breakfast food.
The first night we ate at Iguana Joes. All of us enjoyed our food and drinks. Nothing real special but a cool atmospher.
Tuesday was spent at the pool and beach. 2 for one drinks at the Oasis Bar. Took a taxi ride to Zeerovers for dinner. Long $30 taxi ride. It was interesting. Not sure I would go again but glad I went once.
Wednesday we booked a tour through Marco at Wix Tours. It was awesome. Only the 5 of us with our own private guide. Marco is so full of information about the island and answered all of our questions. He was more reasonable than the large impersonal bus tours. So glad we booked with him.
Wednesday afternoon we did a wine tasting at LaCabana. If you are staying there it is so much fun and Catherine does a great job. Met some really nice people and had a blast.
Thursday was another day at the pool/beach. Thursday night we went shopping at the high rise area and ate at Driftwood. That was our favorite meal of the whole trip. Be sure and ask for the 3 course special. It is a great deal. Wonderful food and service. The white sangria is very good.
Friday Marco was there to take us back to the airport. I would definitely recommend him for transfers or tours. He was prompt, professional, always on time and very knowledgeable about Aruba.
