I am a 57 year old female. I have traveled to a few Caribbean islands; Mexican destinations. I can also now add Puerto Rico and Belize to places I have traveled I love the beach and the ocean and renting a jeep and exploring the island. I am a bartender and I just got my degree in Allied Health. My husband is a retired police officer who now works industrial security. When the time comes for vacation, we are ready to vegetate and snorkel and eat good food. We have now been to Aruba 12 times since 2005. We are more off of the beaten path type tourists. We go where the locals go. We rent a small apartment in Aruba and live like the locals. That is not to say that we do not do anything touristy. We eat dinner out every night. We just are not into the glitz of the hotels and resorts. We go to the beaches that the locals go to. Go to the restaurants that the locals go and we have made such good friends in Aruba that we have been invited into their homes.
