Aruba
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+

Great port of call - you can walk into the city - take a taxi to the local beach and save your money on excursions.

We walked into town; did some shopping and then sat down by the water during happy hour and enjoyed some Amstel Lights for $2 each - the deal of the day. The straw markets are not bad however they are tough to haggle with - I walked to 4 booths to get what I wanted for the price I wanted.

There is nothing to do in this port if you do not do an excursion. We did the ATV tour and the tour was good, lots of fun and we had some time after to go swimming at the port.

This port seems to be a new port of call - we took a taxi into town for $15 each way and went to central park which is where the local straw markets are located. If you have been to Jamaica and think that the folks there are annoying - add 10 times to the people here; don't get me wrong they are super friendly but everyone harasses the bazoobas out of you. The are is very safe but very poor - do not walk outside of this 1 block area and you only need 30 minutes to see this but you can buy some cute little souvenirs here. Everything I bought was more than half of where they started and have exact change - $5-$10 bills.
