Aruba is so beautiful! I was there in May and I'm still talking about it. Definately do some shopping, but make sure you also visit the beautiful beach while you are there. I actually did the majority of my shopping while in Aruba. I agree with the idea that the shopes in Aruba were of higher quality. There were a number of very nice shops there and the prices were very reasonible. I also found it very interesting that many of the people in Aruba were from many different countries. My mom and I shopped at 2 very nice stores and actually met the owner which was from Costa Rica. Enjoy Aruba, IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL!!!
