Aruba is one of our favorite ports.  I can't help you with scooters as we have never rented them. The water is crystal blue for any water activities you might want.  The locals seem to want your company as well as your money (so many islands seem to only want the money), there are many shopping activities, it feels safe and so much more.  We have gone off on our own and booked tours through the ship(s).  We will be sailing to this port again in November and I'm not sure what new activity we will try, but I am looking forward to it.

 

Enjoy your visit!

Been there several times and usually rent a jeep.  Runs about $50 but well worth it to be able to see the entire island including some of the National Park areas that are not easily accessible by car and go to various beaches.  I'll look up the name of the company ...Can also do ATV tours where you follow a group on your own ATV ...

I am 100% comfortable with any of the local companies we used.  There are also "US" Brands that rent like Budget and Thrifty. Our US credit card always covers the insurance part of the rental.

Public transportation which runs around $2.00 is also easily accessible with various buses running all over the place. You can get an ABC Card that is good on Aruba, Curacao, and Bonaire that runs about $5.00.

A jeep sounds like a good idea.
