which one is october and which one is november?
Aruba is under hurricane area, so anytime of the year is ok, but Cancun isn't.

Do you want quiet, relaxed time on the beach? or visiting more fun places and historical areas?

We own at the Royal Sands in Cancun and at The Marriott Aruba Ocean Club. Our children grew up going to both but they love Aruba. Our 4 yr old grandson has been to Aruba. For a 3.5 yr old I would would go to Aruba
vs Cancun because of water, etc. You will love the lazy river etc. There are kids programs etc. Have a good trip regardless of where you go.

Tough call, both awesome. How about whatever flight is cheaper. Also, it may be nice to not deal with holiday traffic turkey day week, and just stay home and veg and relax :)

I would say the water is warmer in Aruba. There is very little weather change throughout the year in aruba. I have been in October, April and May. The water was great all 3 times.

We've been to both Cancun and Aruba love both areas. If I had to pick I would pick the Surf Club in Aruba. We love the resort, especially the lazy river.

I love Jet Blue and they are pretty predictable ... Was watching the prices from MCO or FLL to NAS ... First the sale prices were through March ... then April .... then, finally, last week, the dates I needed in May. Next month, June will be on sale!

krmlaw - be sure you're signed up for their specials via email.
