Beautiful weather. Always 90+ degrees with a cool breeze. Deceiving because I got a sunburn the two days we laid out in the sun….even with a base tan and sunscreen! Not a huge tourist place, at least in our opinion. It was more authentic. Outside of downtown Oranjestad (except for the High Rise Hotel area) was very poor and extremely dirty. It was disheartening to see all the closed buildings and stores with broken windows. Just completely rundown. We could only imagine that at one time, this place was hoppin’!


That being said, we still enjoyed our time away and are very grateful for the help we received from family. Thank you!!!!
