@pink0815:  I just vacationed for 2 weeks in Aruba in July!  While I don’t know of any photographers there, I wanted to suggest to you the ABC Jeep Tour! HOLY COW for something like $60 (Half Day) you see the entire island, and snorkel/cliff jump in the Natural Pools.  It’s a MUST. Best money we spent on the island! Sorry I’m no help with the photographer 🙁

@pink0815:  We also did a snorkeling tour with Aruba Bob’s snorkel company.  While it was cool, and you couldn’t really do it without a guide, it was definitely more for beginners and is a good option if you’re not a fabulous swimmer/or it’s your first time.  They have these little motorized fans that pull you along so you don’t really have to swim but since I have been swimming competitively for most of my life I found it annoying. It was really awesome to see though. Tons and tons of gorgeous fish! 

Other than that, we didn’t eat out much since we rented a house but there’s an italian restaurant at the lighthouse at the top of the island that is supposed to have amazing (expensive) food- but the view is incredible.  

My favorite beach was Eagle Beach- they have jet skiing and parasailing on the beach and there’s a little mini bar that waitresses come to you and let you order delicious beach drinks and you don’t even have to get up.  Arashi Beach is small, but very beautiful and not too crowded.  Not a huge fan of Baby Beach, as there was too much seaweed and sharp shells.  

During the day we went to the Diamond District which has great tourist shopping and fun little markets. There is also the high rise area where all the hotels are and lots of restaurants there. It might be worth it to rent a car instead of paying for cabs everywhere, depending on where you’re staying.  

Overall I really loved the island but I would have went with my bf or friends instead of family if I could do it over.  Skip the chain restaurants- they’re all the same and have some sort of amphibian mascot and mediocre food.  If you can find local places those are the best.  A little warning though- there are LOTS of stray dogs on all the side-streets and local areas.  It made me so sad.  We did see some wild goats though so that was cool.  Best advice: wear sunscreen!!!! The sun is a lot stronger since it’s closer to the equator. We had a few cases of sun poisoning- not fun.  

Hope your honeymoon is everything you dreamed of!!!! Congrats 🙂
