We usually come in September, but a few years ago, we were there over the Queen's Birthday - Labor Day holiday. Everything was closed (unlike the US where WalMart is always open).
What was really nice is that we saw loads of Aruban families at the beach...enjoying the time with family and friends.

Yes - Easter week is known for the family to go camping around the island.
It's amazing some of the set-ups they have!!!
