Welcome and congrats!

Plenty of things to do; just to list a few:

Rent a jeep (not a car), stop at Ling & Sons and get some wine, bread & cheese and have a picnic lunch on the north side. Start up at the lighthouse and head down to the natural bridge. About half way there, you'll see a cove like place that's beautiful.

If you like Aloe, go to the Aruba Aloe factory. Neat tour, and they sell a bunch of aloe products. We checked and the prices at the Aruba Aloe stores (Ren Mall) is the same as at the factory if you just want to buy.

TONS of great restaurants. Check out the "restaurants" tab at the very top of this page for reviews.

Check out the light house; just drive up there, spend a few minutes there and head out. The Italian restaurant there is good; try to get there for sunset.

Check out the "experience Aruba" tab at the top of this page for other things to do.

You need to get the Visit Aruba card. Well worth it. Click on the link at the top of this page for details.

I would like to suggested the following options:

- Visit Alto Vista Chapel

- Relax in one of Aruba's Spa's (some spa's offer special packages)

Hope you will enjoy your honeymoon!
