If that is of any interest to you, you can ask them...but it will take a while before Sandy will reply on the board! so better to catch her at the M and G. I am no snorkler so Palm Beach it is for me.

We are planning on Palm beach as well. Will you be taking a cab or going on the public bus? Fran[/quote]

Has a decision been made yet on taking cabs or public bus? I'm just starting on making plans for our port stops.

We are taking a cab to Palm Beach. What are your planning on doing? Maybe we can share a cab? Fran

Hi Fran! This will be my first time in Aruba. I really wanted to go to Baby Beach, but the cab fare would be expensive. I narrowed it down to either Palm Beach or Eagle Beach. They seem to be close together. Fodo's Caribbean Ports of Call book says, "Palm Beach is the center of Aruban tourism, while Eagel Beach is more than a mile long, and is one of the best in the Caribbean, if not the world". As a fellow New Yorker like yourself, I would be happy to share a cab with you and Bill to any beach in Aruba. What are you planning in the other ports of call? Ted.

Re Curacao....there is a stretch of beach starting at the Aquarium which is broken down by different names ...it is actualy the same beach but distinguished by different colour of chairs & umbrellas. A very safe beach that has okay snorkeling...facilities, restaurants etc. Very clean. Last time we were there it was about 10 dollars by taxi/van

I didn't realize that the stretch of beach had different names. That is where we will wind up. Somewhere along the beach! Fran

Fran I was confused the first time we there, too. We got the taxi to take us to the entrance of the aquarium then we turned right and just walked along till we found a nice spot....it seems every time we go there the spot we choose has a different name of beach...I think it is also because of the hotels ...regardless where you end up getting a chair it is nice...

Is anyone booked on the submarine excursion in Aruba? We were going to do a submarine excursion in Cozumel, but then I saw this one through the cruiseline and it's about the same price as booking independently. It seems like a pretty cool experience.
