Re: Verizon I-Dial - Other Fees ?

I use Vz Wireless and was in Aruba in April and the only charges I incurred were the $1.29 roaming fee. We only made 2 calls of 3-4 minutes in duration each.

Re: Tipping?.........

I agree with Corrine - and my own "rule" of thumb is at least $1/day per each person staying in the room /suite. Also, $1 per bag if you use bell staff to bring your luggage up to the room.

Most of the rooms in the Aruba tower have some kind of ocean view - making it the preferable tower for most. However, such a view does come at a price.
