One point off for the pursers desk. I had to visit the desk 5 times to straighten out my laundry bill. I was right in the first place and had the cabin steward to back me up. Still had to argue my point over and over. Bad guest services.

Just shopped. Government Flea Market is a rip-off. They start at such high prices you can't even start to bargain. Vendors at the port start and less than half the price and will still bargain. Tour Operators and too pushy.

DePalm Island was excellent and so is the lunch. Since we were in on a Sunday the shopping was closing by the time we got back at about 1:00. Shouldn't stop in Aruba on Sundays.
Don't Miss: De Palm Island

Our excursion took the entire time but our host was very informative. Also took us shopping. Hot Springs was excellent....too hot. Although the very warm pool bar and pool slide was great.
Don't Miss: Volcano Hot Springs Resort

Huatulco, Mexico
