We didn't get enough time
On our cruise, we had the opportunity to go to Aruba and Curacao, and even though we didn't have a lot of time to get to fully know the Islands, we had a great time there. To begin with, we started taking a tour bus so we could meet a few of the most important parts of the island in a short amount of time. The bus stopped in every touristic place and gave you some information about it so you could know more about that place and take a few pictures there. Once the tour was over we decided to spend some time at the beach, so we could go into the sea or simply rest under the sun, then, when the sun was going down we went downtown just so we could walk around to see more of the city buildings and also to find some souvenirs. The weather was sunny and hot.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
I would've stayed a bit more because there are a lot of places I couldn't spend as much time in as I would've wanted.
How was the food?
Try the typical food instead of the big chain restaurants.
What tips would you give a friend?
If you're staying for a short time, take a tour bus, it is the best way to get to know a bit of everything.
Summer clothes and lots ohats and sunscreen
We weren't expecting to go for a long walk in Aruba's Arikok park, so I would advise taking proper foot wear with you.
