Activities/Tours in Aruba

Jump to last reply

My family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenagers) will be in Palm Beach, Aruba for 10 days starting on 07/31. This is our first time in Aruba. We are excited but a little at a loss as to what to do beside hanging out by the pool and at the beach. Please help suggest activities and help answer the specific questions below.

1. What island tours do you recommend? We are interested in the Madi tour and/or the Rancho Daimari horseback tour. I do not know whether they will cover the same locations.

2. We are also interested in a snorkeling excursion. Should we sign up for another tour (which one)? Or is it better to go on our own (how/where do we buy/rent snorkeling equipment)? Do you need to know how to swim to go on a snorkeling tour or will the tour operator provide flotation devices?

3. I am interested in giving myself and my 17-year old girl a spa treatment. Any recommendation?

4. I believe that dollars are widely accepted. However, I should probably have some cash in the local currency. What is the best way to get this? ATM machines? Are ATM machines readily available in the Palm Beach area?
