Default Re: Am I in Cancun (2)?

You're right JohnL, it was you who said that - my reading error!

I think you've hit the nail on the head re possible effects on tourism due to global events. Flight costs to Aruba are already pretty steep to start with, with oil shooting up again now, it can't be good news for any longer-haul destination. Airlines have already been raising prices and charging extra for all sorts of things that used to be included, so fuel surcharges or straight price hikes should not be far off. I'm hoping that the government here sees some light as far as overbuilding is concerned, there definitely is a lot of concern by Aruban people themselves about it.

I hope you get a positive reaction on your letter, with some tangible results!
