We are getting ready for our annual trip to paradise next month. I was hoping to hear of some new things to do or places to go that some of you might have found off the beaten path. This trip will be over three weeks and we love to explore the island in it's entirety. Would appreciate any thoughts or ideas.

Sunset UTV trip leaving from Club Arias is nice. Appears a little expensive, but Arias throws in some dinners and free nights at B & B. Just used a free night this past November.

Aruba Outdoor Adventures is an amazing company. RJ Aruba will take you pedal kayaking and snorkeling in some unique spots. We LOVED it and are planning two more trips for the summer.

We are also planning to try Monforte.

Monforte is a newer boat, more of a luxury experience, we are planning to give them a try in July. Snorkeling, food, rope swing.

We just back from a two week trip.
We did the Montforte afternoon cruise and loved it. They have a maximum of 34 passengers.

The crew is top notch, attentive and friendly. Top shelf drinks, not the watered down rum punch in the other ships.

They sail south, past the airport to the Spanish Lagoon where they anchor and snorkel. Only one other boat there, so not crowded. This is the only stop, so snorkeling and swimming is not rushed.

They serve a delicious lunch, cooked on the boat.

The champagne with watermelon puree was fantastic!

This trip costs more than the usual ones, but we thought it was well worth it.

This year I am leaning towards renting a jeep for a couple days and mapping out a route I can take with our regular car to some spots on the East side. Too bad there are no palapas on those little beaches for shade.
