Even though you have to go to the dock to check-in and out (no big deal and no fees!) Aruba is a nice island to visit even if some complain that it has that Disney look. Good anchorages in front of the runway (plenty of wind and they don't fly at night!) or at Palm Beach quite away from the shore. If you rent a car, you can visit the island in less than a day with many nice sights also. If you like provisioning in huge, clean, well stocked supermarkets at slightly better prices than in Curacao or if you enjoy night life (casinos, expensive restaurants) you will also be glad you stopped in Aruba (met a few boats been there for many months or even yrs!) From here you get the shortest trip to Carthagena or the San Blas.
