Cool Verify Current Aruba weather

I have booked to go to Aruba 19/7/04 - 03/08/04 travelling form RAINY COLD London, England to hopefully HOT and Gorgeous Aruba.

I am not asking anybody to guarantee the weather whilst I am there but for anybody who has just left Aruba or better still living their to verify the truth on the web weather forecasts that are showing Thunder storms rain and more rain.

Also I have read many, many reports on the Occidental Grand Aruba (Allegro) and would like some info on there childrens club if anybody has any as I couldn't fine any on the net.

Much appreciated x x x

Don't worry about any weather forecasts you see, they almost always show cloudy, and it's almost always sunny. If it does rain, it's usually very brief and a relief. Plan on sun!

Thank you very much for your quick response.

I knew what the answer would be - but sometimes all one needs is a little reassurance HA!HA!HA!

When you get all your bits and pieces put away at the Allegro, trot yourself down to the beach and stick your feet in the ocean --- THEN you'll be truly convinced!

I've not been to the Allegro and can't answer about the children's activities... maybe somebody else can?

Yeah I shall have a try at that HA!HA!HA! - I can't wait. Just over a week to go then it's off to paradise. I've been to many tropical and paradise Islands and Aruba comes highly recommended.

As for the kids club - the kids will be happy just being in the sun and swimming in the sea.

My wife and I were in Aruba from June 28- July 3 and the weather was great. You need clouds to give yoiu relief from the sun. One question, my daughter just moved to London to start a new job and I was wondering how she would get to Aruba if we were to meet up there. How are you routed and on what airline? Thanks

Hello Cahsbo

I booked a package deal via hayes & Jarvis the flights are direct from London Gatwick (North Terminal) flying with First Choice Airways. She could just book a flight direct with First Choice Airways. I'm not sure of other airline form London that go to Aruba but I could find out, maybe British Airways or Virgin I'm not sure.

I do know that the cost of package deals or flights form London to Aruba is a costly thing.

What does your daughter do here in London, did she tell you about our miserable weather and non-stop rain HA!HA!HA!
