Beach day or Excursion

Recommended Posts

just curious if there are any resorts you would recommend getting a day pass for? Should we do a beach day in Aruba or should we go out and see the island?

The excursion to De Palm Island is a favorite of ours. (y)

 

Can I ask what you loved about DePalm Island ..... we are thinking of booking this for January with a private palapa add on. Thanks

We like taking the 6 hour excursion to DePalm.

Everything is totally included ... food, drinks, chairs, snorkel mask & fins, etc.

Easy access to the water from one of the snorkel docks -- LOTS of beautiful blue parrot fish.

We've never had a private thatched roof type of thing but there are ample chairs in both the sun and shady areas and we've never felt crowded.

 

When in January will you be there?

We'll be there on January 23rd.

Rumor has it that Depalm Island just purchased some flamingos. :)I'm trying to get verification.

I got the confirmation that Depalm Island does now have flamingos. They need a little time to get adjusted before they can mingle, but they will probably let people see them until then.

Are you talking about a ship excursion or an independent company? If ship excursion, which ship?

I was looking at going to that flamingo island but if this place now has them that’s great news! We are on the Caribbean Princess.
