Currency, Exchange, Credit Cards, ATMs in Aruba

Flag of Aruba

Aruba's currency is florin, but US dollars are also accepted everywhere (although change may be given in florins). There are 6 banks, one of them at the airport. Not all banks have ATMs, so the best place to get cash is the airport. Onother option is to bring traveler's checks, which are widely accepted, as are major credit cards. Most of the available ATMs let withdrow US dollars.

Most stores are open from 9am to 12pm, and then 2pm to 6:30pm, Monday through Saturday. The Alahambra bazaar is open from 5pm to midnight. Banking Hours: Mon-Fri 8am-12pm and 1:30pm to 4pm. Some banks remain open at lunchtime.
