Girls getaway to Aruba or St. Maarten

Jump to last reply

My friend and I are going to either Aruba or St. Maartens for a 30th birthday celebration girls getaway in August! We are not sure which location is "better" and i have heard different stories about both islands, so i need some more help in making our decision...

We are looking for nice beaches, a fun night life, horseback riding on the beach, hiking, para-sailing, zip lining, day spas, good restaurants, and a few interesting/cultural locations to visit.
But with all that said i am also worried that people keep informing me that St. Maarten is not the safest of the Caribbean. Also, I am told that while in Aruba i wouldn't need to worry about a car rental St.Maarten is almost necessary should we want to visit anywhere away from the hotel/beach is that true?

any help, opinions, and information is welcome.
