17th April Aruba
Easter Monday, not a good day for a cruise ship to arrive in a Religious country.
Although all the trips went off, what few there were, the only shops open were the diamond merchants and the Designer Labels.
Even some of the bars/cafes remained closed
The lure for tourists is the sunshine, the interior of the island is arid.
The clear waters are a paradise for snorkelling and scuba diving.
Tourism and oil are the main income for the island, the government has concentrated on increasing the number of hotels on Aruba.
The number of tourist flights coming in over the sea is testament to the holidaymakers coming to the island.
