Aruba, an island in Distress: Surrounded by Uncertainty, Cover Up and Mystery
(Vanderbilt Ã¢â‚¬” ’06)
Some 15 months later Aruba finds itself an island in distress surrounded by a sea of mystery and cover-upÃ‚ due to the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. As Vanderbilt points out, “even the the waters surrounding Aruba looks muchÃ‚ like Natalee’s clothing to tourists. Scary.“
Tourism continues to fall even though the story of Natalee’s disappearance is not in the headlines everyday. People have made up their minds and until Aruba decides to come clean there will not even be a chance of tourists returning. No amount of money or marketing will fix this problem. Justice for Natalee just might.

My Opinions,thoughts and some facts!
OMG!- is all I could think after a short discussion I had with my mother about jsut soem of what is going on in ARUBA~ who is a native arubian- my family is from aruba and in the early 80′s they moved to the U.S. we have gone back to aruba several times but not in the last 7yrs- we stay updated by reading the local paper(Diario online) I have many family living in aruba aunts,uncles,cousins and an elderly grandmother that lives alone and I FEAR for her SAFETY!!!
LET ME MAKE SOMETHING CLEAR~
ARUBA- was a HAPPY ISLAND
ARUBA- was a SAFE ISLAND
ARUBA – was a GREAT VACATION SPOT FOR ALL!!!
until Holland gave Aruba over to the arubian people 15 yrs ago.
Since then Aruba’s government has become corrupt-and not to mention aruba has let any TOM DICK AND HARRY into Aruba!
LET ME MAKE THIS CLEAR 99% of arubians are nice, friendly,quite AND peaceful-
MOST OF THESE ACTS OF HATE, VOILENCE, SEX, DRUGS, PROSTITUTION AND MORE ARE CAUSED BY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS THAT FLEE TO ARUBA FROM COLOMBIA-VENEZUELA-DOMINICA R.
GO HOME COLOMBIA
GO HOME VENEZUELA
GO HOME D. REPUBLICA
WE WANT OUR COUNTRY BACK!!!!
how long is Holland going to sit back and watch as they destroy our beautiful home- our beautiful country!!!
ARUBA IS NOT WHAT IT ONCE WAS! AND SOMEONE NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING AND DO IT FAST!
WE NEED TO WRITE TO THE QUEEN- AND TELL HER TO HELP US HELP ARUBA- HELP THE PEOPLE GET OUT OF THIS TERRIBLE TERRIBLE SITUATION! ARUBA’S GOVERNMENT IS SO NAIVE- THEY JUST SIT BACK AND LET IT ALL HAPPEN- CANT THEY SEE WHAT THEY ARE DOING?- FOR GODS SAKE WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!!!!
WHERE IS THE MORAL!
WHAT HAPPENED TO NATALIE HOLLOWAY- HOW COULD THEY NOT FIND HER BODY- HOW COULD THEY LET THAT DUTCH KID OFF SO EASY- WHILE HES OFF TO COLLEGE IN HOLLAND HAVING A GOOD TIME LOOK WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ARUBA-
THEY ARE LOOSING MONEY- THEY ARE CRYING FOR AMERICANS TO GO SPEND MONEY YET ONCE THEY GET THERE THEY MISTREAT TOURISTSSSSSSSS
ONCE AGAIN- ITS NOT THE NATIVE ARUBIANS- THAT I CAN SWEAR ON ANYTING- ITS THESE DAMN IMMIGRANTS THAT HAVE BROUGHT THIS ONTO OUR COUNTRY!!!!
WHAT THE HELL!!!
FEEL FREE TO COMMENT- SORRY FOR ANY MISPELLED WORDS- VERY UPSET AND TYING FAST!
HAVE A GOOD DAY!
Well that is true Aruba is in distress especialy with this goverment a bunch of corupted money eager burocrats.
All that they think about is money and nothing else.
And its true that since the dutch handed over the island goverment to the Arubians that sooner or later Aruba is going to go belly up.
All the crime that is going on is because the govement has let these columbians, venezuelans, dominican rep., peruvians ect. enter Aruba with out any screening so what do you get only scum that moves to Aruba because in thier country they were convicted or you name it. Before we could leave everything unlocked but now you have to lock up everything. And Aruba is getting more expensive every day and nobody gives a hood.
