Sadly, there are few books on traveling to Aruba In most cases, this beautiful island is included as part of larger guides Thus one is left purchasing a bulkier travel guide with extra information and a greater cost I purchased this book for a trip to Aruba this past January Normally, my husband and I purchase DK Eyewitness Travel Guides, and we were terribly disappointed to find there was no DK Aruba guide After reviewing what little was available online, we decided to purchase the Fodor s guide We found it surprisingly good and detailed The island is fairly simply to traverse by car, and most of the time the directions and locations were fairly accurate The restaurant guide also came in handy It is a compact guide thus it is easy to out in a carry on as well as take with you on explorations of the island.
I only gave it four stars because the guide could have used maps and pictures, as the DK guides provide However, for bring one of the fewest guides solely on Aruba, it is the best one.
Many great ideas Just returned from Cruise to Panama Canal with a stop in Aruba Lots of Info Thanks Went on vacation to Aruba.
Had to book to review and was a nice asset to the internet review we had completed.
It was also portable while there unlike the internet at times.
Like Fodor s works would recommend.
Used this book everyday in Aruba, it was very helpful and was spot on We used it to see the sights, snorkel and for dining suggestions I would buy any of these guides if I was traveling to any new destination.
I bought this as a stocking stuffer for my wife as we are going to Aruba in a couple of months Its a nice, concise overview of the island and it gave us alot of great ideas on what we will want to do It has alot of pictures to give you the concept of some areas and the advice seems fairly balanced The size will make it easy to bring this along with us.
Daf r aber ist dieser vom Feinsten.
Sehr sch ne Aufteilung, tolle Fotos und er weckt die Lust auf mehr For the price, I think I paid about a fiver vs the list price of a tenner, this seems to be a very useful, concise informative guide to the island Concentrating on the beaches, bars, restaurants, hotels and attractions that norma l holidaymakers rather than backpackers would be interested in Will see if it is as good as it appears when I use it when I visit the place On the basis of this book, I would consider buying Fodors guides again I also bought the Frommers guide to Aruba, and of the two I would say the Fodors came out slightly better.
