Thought I'd post a new one on our experience at the airport. I know some have asked how much time to allow. Since we had a rental car to return, we allowed just over 2 hours. Needed every minute. As we learned, there is something to be said about "Island Time". It means slow!! Even though my husband got right up to the counter, it took 1/2 hour to check our car in. We have only flown out of the country 2 times before and Aruba's international airport is very different than Mexico. We almost missed picking up our luggage that we'd thought we'd checked at the ticket counter. Going through security twice was something unexpected and while waiting to go through customs once again, realized everyone else had their checked baggage with them. We did notice the baggage carrousel and I questioned my husband about it but just thought it was weird they had it there for incoming passengers. As it was, we had to go back and retreive our "checked baggage" and haul to another conveyor to get loaded. The lines were long and slow and several times aiport personnel came through calling for passengers on certain flights as they were boarding and were about to be left. Maybe it was just since we were leaving on a Sat. but I barely had time for a potty break before boarding our plane.
