        Aruba needs to start putting life guards on its beaches. There have better too many drownings that could have been prevented if trained life guards were present. The Tourism Department doesn’t want tourists to know there are no life guards because they are only interested in getting tourist dollars, not about keeping tourists safe.

                  Yes and worst even if you have personal insurance... "All visitors must take out Aruba’s COVID insurance, even if they have their own insurance – because their own insurance will not cover costs related to isolation or quarantine in the event of having symptoms or testing positive for COVID-19."

                      It's a well know fact that all beaches are public and that there's no lifeguards, Aruba isn't trying to hide that, get educated before launching accusations...
