I should get in touch with MasterCard and suggest that Lorna and Bob Pecora do a commercial for them. When the Pecoras talk about their annual vacations in Aruba, they describe the people of the island and the friends they have made as “priceless.”
When Lorna married Bob, he was already an Aruba lover and a Divi owner. He bought a two-bedroom pre-construction after one visit to the island. It wasn’t hard for Lorna to fall under the same spell. She adores the island and its people. For two weeks every fall, now going on 27 years, they can’t remember anything, but wonderful vacations while in residence at Divi. The island is beautiful. There is no language barrier to overcome. It’s safe and the food is great. While there, it’s mostly about relaxation, some reading, and a little bike riding. They also take advantage of the Links at Divi.
Aruba is their home away from home, which during the other fifty weeks of the year is in Illinois. When they get to the island, they like to mix it up a bit. The first week is always at Divi Village. The second week, they spend at the Golf Villas, which overlook the manicured greens, the shimmering lagoons and the blue Caribbean Sea just beyond. Other than that, they’re pretty committed to certain institutions on the island: Jimmy’s for happy hour and Mulligan’s for dinner.
They have made countless friends with their fellow fall travelers and count the days until the meet up again at Divi. The Pecoras witnessed friends get engaged at sunset on the beach at Divi, which was a romantic moment for them just watching it happen. (It’s not unusual to see such bliss while at Divi; Divi likes to make romance happen.) For their own private romance, the Pecoras dine on the beach under the stars at Flying Fishbones.
