The fifth Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival will take place on October 7 and 8 with a pre-heating warm-up preceding the festival. Held at Cas di Cultura, as is customary, the event has grown to full adulthood through the years. This means that world-class performers can be attracted to the event and thus the 2011 edition will be filled with the names of enormously talented artists. Names like Angie Stone, Eddie Palmieri, Candy Dulfer, Richard Bona and Raul Midon will be the festival’s headliners without contest, but Cosy Cotton with singer Grana Louise is sure to attract a wide audience as well. Cosy Cotton is performing on Aruba for the fourth year now and, we can tell you, it makes the hearts of local and visiting blues fans beat faster!

This was dh's first time traveling with a backpack and he LOVED it. He will never go back to his wheeled carry on and separate computer bag EVER again. His Pacsafe backpack had a separate padded compartment solely for the 15" laptop. TSA security has always been difficult for him trying to juggle the laptop and this made it so much easier.

Is the name of the game in air fares. For example, Delta's fares during the week, when there is no competition to Aruba, are astronomical.
If you fly on a day of the week during which Delta has competition from Spirit or Air Tran (soon to be Southwest)you will find a much cheaper fare. We have not been able to take advantage of Air Tran or Spirit's lower fares because we chose to stay more than 7 or 8 nights. As of right now, Air Tran and Spirit fly weekends only.
