13 THINGS I WISH I KNEW BEFORE I WENT TO ARUBA [AVOID THESE NEWBIE MISTAKES]

6. SPF 30 sunscreen isn’t strong enough!

Usually the day before a trip, I hit up Target and get the carry on essentials – makeup remover, lotion, shave cream and sunscreen. Have you noticed that all the carry on varieties of sunscreen are SPF 30? Well, Aruba is VERY close to the equator and SPF 30 sunscreen just won’t do the trick. My husband got a bit of sun poisoning even though he lathered up each and every day every part of his body.
Why do hotels give you body wash, shampoo, conditioner, shower caps, sewing kit but NOT sunscreen? Oh that’s right, you can go pay a ridiculous price for it in the gift shop.

7. Off road tours – what the extra cash is for

We took an off road (UTV tour) in Aruba. It was the best thing we did when we were on the island! They mysteriously said “bring extra cash” but never were clear on what exactly it was for. Turns out, if you are doing a off road tour there is no windshield in the UTV and sunglasses won’t do the trick for keeping dirt our of your eyes. So, they will want to sell you goggles for 10 bucks a pop. Do yourself a favor and buy some on your own so you can save your cash. Some of the other guests also bought lunch (we pigged out at our breakfast buffet) so were able to avoid the food truck lunch and I recommend you do the same if possible.
