Aruba or Turks and Caicos?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are getting away for a week in early June. We've got it down to two places - Aruba or Turks and Caicos. Aruba seems easy - we like the reviews of the Radisson and knowing there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance eases our mind (the one thing we don't want to do for a week is eat resort food with resort prices).

Our fear is that the Radisson is too much like Atlantis - huge, crowded, and at times pretty overwhelming. While we like the options that being somewhere like that provides, we're not sure if we'll enjoy it as much as going somewhere more secluded. (I understand that the Radisson is much smaller than Atlantis, but the crowds there drove us crazy and we don't really want to deal with that this year.) Tell me I'm wrong and I'll book tonight!

Enter Turks and Caicos. Our concern with T&C is that we'll break the bank trying to eat and maybe end up bored after three or four days.

We're in our late 20s and not really looking for any nightlife, though having something as an option would be nice (even if it's just a bar). We don't scuba dive or do any water sports, but we can walk for miles to enjoy scenery or to go somewhere interesting.

The most important part of this vacation is to relax - to have zero worries - and to be somewhere beautiful.

Will Aruba make us happy?
