I always rent from Hans, but we have friends going who want to rent a 4wd. What companies do you recommend? ( I did a search of the bb and did not find the answer)

There are a number of companies that have Jeeps to rent. Last year we were staying at the Surf Club and I had made a reservation at the Marriott Hertz location for a Jeep. I think my son used a company called Top Drive. Both of these were one day rentals and we both rented a car from Hans for use on the island.

We rented a jeep one time and found out that the 4WD had been disconnected. If you want a fun experience, rent a UTV from Arubiana or Road Runner.

As I drive around Aruba in my air conditioned car with the windows up and the A/C blasting I gaze out the window of the "real adventurers" in their roof less, no door off road vehicles and say "enjoy the extra expense and heat and if you stop somewhere make sure you bring everything with you".

We rented last year from Top Drive. They had a pick up office at Manchebo so it was an easy walk for us from Costa Linda. Make sure you get up early and go to wild side for sunrise. It's well worth it!
