ABC-Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao: You can bet on it.

As good as it gets, all of these Caribbean islands have white sandy shorelines with the same New Yorkers you might be fighting with for parking spaces back home only this time it's beach chairs. They speak a lot more Dutch here (in Aruba) than I expected. There's a lot of casinos, and a lot of the online poker/sportsbook sites who set up -offshore-shops. Maybe more will be here after the Dec 1 deadline for online gaming, when mostly all banks won't take deposits from American players . (December 1st, the date by which the financial services industry in the United States must fall into line with the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA).

B is for Bonaire, and I won't be headed there this time around.

Then there is "C" , Curacao, pronounced Curaçao. It is a quintessential port town with lots of activity and a quasi European feel, If you ever wished palm trees in Holland and 80 degree Januaries; complete with Amsterdam-like canals.
