13 THINGS I WISH I KNEW BEFORE I WENT TO ARUBA [AVOID THESE NEWBIE MISTAKES]

It’s easy when you are planning that exotic Caribbean trip to get lost in the pleasure of just getting away. But it’s also important to do your research too before you visit Aruba or any foreign destination if you want to avoid spending excess money or wasting your time.

Here are the 13 things I learned both before and after I visited Aruba. I wish I knew all of these things about Aruba first!

1. Cash is king when you visit Aruba!

Though Aruba has its own currency system, the US dollar is accepted everywhere. So, no need to get money changed over. I expected that I would need some cash, but have gotten relatively comfortable knowing that credit cards are widely accepted in most countries now. It is even safer to use credit cards as any fraudulent charges will be refunded and many offer zero foreign transaction fees.

2. Taxis are expensive in Aruba!

Taxis prices to hotels in Aruba are regulated by how tall the hotel is!

I had asked someone who travels to Aruba regularly about the cost of a taxi and they said it was “relatively inexpensive”. I guess cost is truly relative. I didn’t think that $31 + tip is inexpensive. Interestingly, taxi rates are determined by how many stories a hotel has. Yep. The signs are clearly posted at the Aruba airport. Plus they do not take credit cards. Welp, there went about fifty percent of the cash I had brought with me to Aruba.
