Default Aruba .. Banana Bus??

Has anyone taken this day time tour before? Can you give me some details on how it was and what you wore? I understand that you are to bring a change of clothes, I guess thats so you have something dry to wear after the beach.

Up next ...

I went on the banana bus- a lot of fun- crazy bus drivers- I think that it is probably the best excursion to see as much as you can. Wear shoes for climbing on rough rocks (Natural bridge) I wore sandles -NOT. You will get a nice overview of the Island, iguanas and beach. The current may be strong to snorkel at Baby Beach and it doesn't have the variety of fish or plant life as other sites, but all in all I think it is a fun worthwhile excursion.

one more thing, the climb down to see Natural Bridge is steep and rugged- I did it when I was 54, but it is not for anyone with bad knees or ankles. They will help you and tell you where to climb and give you a hand if you need one. ( I needed one)

Ignore the Natalie comment. The island is safe as a good portion of it is timeshares & a few hotels. Been there several times & you can walk anywhere late at night & nobody will bother you.

I saw the Banana Bus go by a few times & it looks to be a good party bus!

FYI - the Natural Bridge in Aruba has collapsed, you won't be going there.
