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

3. Don’t rent a car in Aruba.

When we arrived and found out how much taxis cost in Aruba, we were frustrated and my husband thought it might be a good idea to rent a car and go exploring on the island. However, we took a off road safari one day and the ride to and from the tour departure site, gave us a good idea of what we could expect to see driving around Aruba and we decided against renting a car.

4. Buy duty free or you will pay dearly for booze

Buy booze at the duty free store in Aruba or pay dearly at hotel resorts and restaurants!

When you arrive at the airport, buy your booze at the duty free store. When we visited Costa Rica years ago, before the tourist boom, we were surprised at how inexpensive alcohol is. But, that’s not the case in Aruba. Both resorts and restaurants are pricey! At our resort, drinks were approximately $15 each. Ouch! We saw many of the seasoned traveler bring their coolers down, no doubt with booze in it. Smart.ADVERTISEMENT

5. Stores are closed on Sundays in Aruba

I get it, everyone needs a day to rest, so in Aruba they close the downtown stores. It is one of the reasons we decided against renting a car when we visited the island. The colorful buildings and myriad of cuisines did beckon us, but the best day to explore on our short trip would have been Sunday. So, know in advance, things are pretty shut down in downtown Oranjestad Aruba on Sundays.
