    Default Only one day in Aruba

    What would you suggest if you have only one day in Aruba? I'll be there in November on a cruise and we will be there until the wee hours of the morning.

    Default one day in Aruba

    go across the street from where your cruise ship comes in and take a bus along the coast and get off at Holiday Inn. Walk to the back of Holiday Inn and walk along the boardway as if you were heading back to town. Stop at one of the many hotels that have restaurants of go back to Holiday and walk across the street and eat at Tony Romans. Then hop the buss back to town and enjoy dinner on your ship. Enjoy your "little" walk.

    Default cruise ideas

    Take a bus or taxi to one of the beaches, relax all day. Or go on a scuba diving journey. At night go downtown, eat at one of the great restaurants and enjoy the nightlife there.

    Or go on atlantis submarine.

    For just one day since you like water sports, I'd opt to go to the Holiday Inn and spend a day doing many of their water sports activities, small waves and very easy to get in the ocean, nice beach and next to the Hyatt outdoor bars and lunch areas both at Hol Inn and Marriott as well. Great beach walking area, with wind surfers to watch, parasailing, and much more.eing the other side of Aruba is OK if you have more time but just getting there and back will gobble up your day.Hol. Inn is a public beach where you can use their chairs etc. Some of the other resorts do not allow this use. Plus at the Holiday they have the main bulk of water sports.

    i love Night Life in Aruba: Nightlife is spirited in Aruba, especially for those who board the brightly painted Kukoo Kunuku bus, which stops at local bars and concludes with traditional dinner served at an Aruban home. The islandís many casinos also keep things lively all night.

    We may be cruising to Aruba next year.

    As our time is limited, what would you suggest that we see/do there in the short time we are there? We are "beach" people, but not snorkling.

    If you enjoy time on the beach you can easily spend your time at Eagle or Palm Beach. You can get there via bus or taxi. Taxi is faster if your time is limited.

    Hi, we're (2 adults and 3 kids 2-8) travelling in October on a cruize and we have about 12hrs stop in Aruba. Beside spending all day on the beach, are there any special attractions for young (and very active...) kids such as water park? Also, what currency do they use and do they accept US dollars?

    The US dollar is widely accepted everywhere.

    For activities
    Butterfly Farm, Ostrich Farm and Donkey Sanctuary.

    There is a waterpark on DePalm island but it is pricey and smallish in comparison to what you would find in the U.S.
