We just got back from Jamaica (Ocho Rios) and already I'm thinking of going away again next year if we can swing it.  We're thinking of Aruba and I hear it's fabulous.  Has anyone been to the Riu there? It looks amazing, at least the pool does anyway.  

Would also like to hear about things to do there.  We tend to stay mostly on the resorts and just relax, but one or two excursions would be nice :)

Oh ...

Nothing too wild like off-roading or zip lining ... :)

I cannot comment on the Riu, although I have been to Aruba quite a few times on cruise ships. It is one of my favourite islands in the Caribbean because it is absolutely beautiful! I will warn you that it is expensive there though. It is expensive to eat, shop, everything. I would say it is one of the most expensive islands in the Caribbean, especially if you are comparing it to Jamaica. As for things to do I would recommend paddle boarding because the waters tend to be fairly calm in some areas. Hope that helps a little bit!
