Aruba’s shopping is concentrated in the capital of Oranjestad and in the malls of the highrise and lowrise area. The downtown and harborfront areas boast colorful malls, main street boutiques and shops. Jewelry stores are plentiful on Aruba and specialties include watches, gold, diamonds, tanzanite, and many other precious stones.
Aruba’s stylish boutiques offer the finest in exclusive watches, jewelry, diamonds, cosmetics, crystal, china, perfumes, state-of-the-art electronics, souvenirs, international fashions from leading designers – and much more. Though Aruba is not a duty-free port, its duty is low enough to make for excellent shopping for local and imported merchandise.
Casting an inviting neon glow on the island after dusk, the popular open-air malls are also home to a variety of live nightly entertainment. Major shopping complexes include Royal Plaza Mall, Renaissance Mall & Marketplace, Paseo Herencia Mall, Palm Beach Plaza Mall, Port of Call Marketplace, South Beach Centre, The Village Mall, Margarita Plaza, and Alhambra Casino and Shops.
Beyond the malls and shops, the wharf area and popular Tourist Go Flea Market can be a bargain-hunter’s dream.
