Default Re: Grenada, curacao,margarita,aruba - whats the b

Grenada has a lovely port town where you can buy fresh spices. A necklace made from spices is a great souvenir to bring home. Grand Anse is a beautiful beach. Just take the water taxi from any independent on shore. Curacoa is a flat Dutch island with only a few hotels and a nice downtown historic area. The Aquarium is very interesting though for this type of country. If you take a taxi to the Aquarium beach (man made) where there is a entry fee, spend some time on the beach then wander over to the aquarium for some local culture. Arrange for your taxi to return for you at a certain time. Have him leave you off downtown so you can do a walking tour on your own. Be sure to go into the hotel at the mouth of the canal. Go all the way to the pool area for a relaxing view and cool beverage. The Pontton bridge is a site to see as is the ship going under the Bridge. I am not sure ships still do this as I understand there is a new pier. Aruba is one of our favorite places to return to again and again. Just walk to the main street and get on a local bus to Palm Beach $2.00 RT. Ask to be left off near the Holiday Inn and if they are not real busy, they might rent a lounge chair to you. The water and view is lovely. You can get a taxi back to town if you don't want to wait for the bus. Casino's are open early to late. I Don't like Venezula.
