I Love Aruba Re: Alone to Aruba??

I have shoes that are older than you!!!

I'm a solo traveler, and over the years have made a gazillion friends, both timeshare owners and Arubans. I actually started off renting, and because each year it got better and better, and I loved it more and more, I now own 4 weeks, and can't wait to get there.

Now.... you may miss your wife, but as for going alone, it's certainly not a problem. People are extremely warm and friendly, and once you say hello, a conversation starts, and you've made a friend!

Others, I'm sure, will echo my sentiments!

I have gone to Aruba solo. I had a great time discovering the place and enjoyed it greatly. And I met a lot of great people both Aruban and people from other countries and states in the US You just have a lot of fun espcally during the Happy hours at the resort Bars

I would do it again in a heartbeat and if my friend cannot come this summer with me to Aruba I will do it solo.

I have been going to Aruba for close to 25 years -- for the past 14 years I have been 'alone' in Aruba. I use that word gently because no-one is ever 'alone' in Aruba. I own timeshare at the Aruba Beach Club, and am there for the month of February. Through the years I have met countless Americans as well as Arubans. I never feel 'alone' while in Aruba. Actually I believe one tends to meet more people when they don't have another person with them. Just keep a smile on your face and be friendly to others and you will be fine.

This is the first year I went solo. Same like all the above answers, I've met so many people over the past 17 years I never felt alone. Had several dinners out on my own, everyone was extremely friendly. Aruba has some great places to people watch, all the entertainment you want!
