Security for Our Trip to Aruba

For our latest trip to Aruba, we went with the Pacsafe system for the first time and loved it! Though it was not cheap, we will get many years use out of it and now that we have actually used it, knowing the security it provided, we feel that it was money very well spent. It served the dual purpose as a carry on for air travel to Aruba as well as beach bag each day.

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.

Delta Air Fares to Aruba

Aruba Bound

C - O -M - P - E - T - T -I - O - N

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.
