Aruba has some of the best snorkeling in the Carribean. You can take a cab to Baby Beach, where the snorkeling is great. It depends on what time of year you go there. I have been there in May and the water was much calmer than when I went in January and March. El Gaucho is one of the best restaurants on the island and well worth a lunch. If you rent a jeep, you can tour the entire island. One side of the island is all beaches and hotels and the other side is wild, dessert like, with only a road to follow, which can get pretty tricky. It is very beautiful and natural, and you don't swim on that side! Shopping is rather expensive in Aruba.
