Aruba Surprise Dining Options

While vacationing recently, there are many Aruba surprise dining options available. When my Husband and I vacation, we always are on the lookout for the best dining experiences. Aruba Surprise Dining Options So, if you're willing to try something a little different and dine in a cozy atmosphere with approximately 16 other guests you never met, you're in for a fun experience. Since I'm a foodie, I'm always looking for new restaurants to try. 2 Fools and a Bull When my husband and I vacationed in Aruba in September 2016, we dined at 2 Fools and a Bull. Visit my prior post on 2 Fools and a Bull. If you dined there prior, they will have a different menu on your next visit. I'm sure this can be tricky for Pauly and Chef, Bas. Hence, Pauly informed me of the importance of never having the same menu for his repeat guests. Chef Bas Because my Husband and I had an enjoyable time there, we were excited about returning. For me, the food was the high point of the night. Chef, Bas (short for Sebastian) does an excellent job with the menu and intermixing the flavors. Also, I like the fact that Bas talks about the ingredients of each course. Moreover, Bas is a talented Chef who has trained in both Holland and Aruba. His expertise in preparing special menu's came across both times my Hubby and I have dined at 2 Fools and a Bull. 2 Fools and a Bull Night In between courses, you head outside for some mingling and wine. Of course, I like to poke around and check out the decor. In view of this, I couldn't resist sitting in the chair for a Queen or King. Pauly continues to provide the entertainment for the evening. He starts the evening off with a toast and continues with humorous stories throughout the night. If you have dined there prior, you will remember some of his stories. What was different for me this time, then the last time, was there was a family dining together, so this didn't have [...]

Aruba Tropical Paradise Vacation

If you're looking to get away, consider booking an Aruba tropical paradise vacation. When planning a vacation, there is nothing like this beautiful tropical island. Aruba Tropical Paradise Vacation In the first place, Aruba holds a special place in my heart. It is where my Hubby and I honeymooned. Of course, I continue to visit this island regularly and each time I visit, there is always something new to see. Although Aruba is warm all year-long, it has trade winds which make it very comfortable. For me, there is nothing like being out on a beach with a book and breezy weather. Aruba Tropical Paradise Travel First, if you live in the Boston area, flights are approximately four and a half hours non-stop. For those who live on the West Coast, travel can be long. Of course, if you're travelling from the West Coast, you may have multi-stops. Aruba tropical paradise is a popular island stop for many cruise lines. Also, you may want to consider visiting Venezuela, which is 15 miles from Aruba. In addition, Curacao is a hop, skip and a jump from Aruba. Aruba Beaches Indeed, Aruba has white sandy beaches surrounding the island. Because my Husband and I have often vacationed at the High-Rise hotels, we have spent a lot of time on Palm Beach. By the same token, we were excited to stay right across from Eagle Beach on this vacation. Eagle Beach is considered one of the top beaches in the world. You can expect white sand and calm water. Since there are many water sports going on, sometimes the waves can be a little stronger. While being in the ocean, my Husband had a blast feeding the fish. Indeed, his feeding of the fish attracted a lot of attention. Hence, many individuals started photographing and video taping this activity. Of course, I saw a fairly large fish nearby and thought it was a baby shark and jumped out of the ocean shortly after. Aruba Tropical Vacation Activities Because Aruba is one of the safest islands, you can venture out anywhere. [...]

Recent Aruba Palm Beach Vacation

It all started for me on my honeymoon when I fell in love with Aruba.  On a recent Vacation, my Husband and I stayed in Palm Beach at the Marriott Surf Club. Aruba Aruba is a four and a half hour flight from Boston.  The island lies on the coast of South America.  Together with beautiful white sand and frolicking in the turquoise water, it is the perfect setting for a romantic vacation.  Every time we land, I cannot wait to get to the hotel. Dutch and Papiamento are the official language.  Sunny days, trade winds and many nationalities make this the center of culture.  The island is known for sunshine year around.  Cool air from the trade winds make the heat bearable. To do Due to the beautiful weather daily, I chose to spend my days under a Palapa.   Also,  I am able to catch up on my reading.  Many Hotel's employ staff to take your drink and food order while lounging around the pool or beach.  In addition, water lovers can find an abundance of options such as: Jet Ski Submarine boat excursions Sailboat Swimming Kite surfing Surf Banana Boat Parasail Tubing Jetpack In addition, there are many land excursions.  Some I recommend are: ATV tour Guided tour De Palm tour Bus tour Jeep tour Since I have been to Aruba countless times, I try to take in something new each time I visit.  One ritual I seem to do each time is get my hair braided with beads. Where to Eat Since there are a multitude of restaurants in Aruba, I always look forward to visiting my favorites as well as trying new places.  First night in Aruba, we usually spend dining at Gianni's.  Due to their tableside preparation of spaghetti made with whiskey, I frequent this restaurant every time. Second favorite restaurant is Screaming Eagle.  There is no place like it.  In addition to regular tables, you have the option of dining on a bed. While my Husband and I chose to dine at a regular table, we decided to have our dessert at a bed. Additionally, we usually like to venture out to [...]

2 Fools Gourmet Experience Aruba

If  you're looking for a gourmet experience, look no further than 2 Fools and a Bull in Aruba.  Every time my Husband and I visit Aruba, we have our go-to favorite restaurants.  Since I last visited Aruba, I've heard that 2 Fools and a Bull is one of the best restaurants on the Island.   When I returned home from my last vacation to Aruba, I started my research on this restaurant.  Due to the positive reviews, I was excited to dine there.  Once my Husband and I made our Hotel reservations, I contacted the restaurant for a reservation.  I was excited to receive confirmation for a dinner reservation prior to my vacation. 2 Fools and a Bull Since my Husband and I are foodies, we were looking forward to our dinner reservation.  The first thing you need to do is email the restaurant for a reservation.  Second, once you receive a date, you need to reconfirm the reservation.   Upon arrival, you will see a chalkboard as featured below next to the door. Upon arrival, you're greeted with a glass of champagne and ushered into the patio area.  Since you mingle in the back with others, you feel like you're at a dinner party.  This experience was different from any prior restaurant my Husband and I ever been. First, you're seated at 7:30 p.m.   The menu is on the blackboard with all 5 courses.  They pay attention to allergies.  Paul is a delightful host and entertainer.  Paul engages the diners with his stories. Bas is the talented Chef behind the menu.    If you have dined there before, they keep a record of such so the meal isn't repeated.  Furthermore, between courses, you're able to retreat to the patio.  As you're  sipping your wine, you're able to carry on a conversation.  Your glass is never left empty. A wonderful part of the experience is your taste awakens to quality and flavor.  Exceptional food with wine pairing makes this an experience not to miss. Acquaintances and Friendships While sitting in close proximity, you're able to strike up new acquaintances.  One of the couples we met were on our [...]
