Aruba is home to some of the highest-quality aloe in the world, and there are many products containing it for purchase. The Dutch influence also offers up good deals on quality cheeses, Delft Blue china and fine linens.
Unique local Aruban spirits are also a good bet. Look for ponche crema, a fortified eggnog-type liqueur, and coecoei, a thick licorice-tasting red liquor.
Aruba’s hot sauce made from fiery local Madame Janette peppers is also a great souvenir. And now Aruba’s artistic community has a new home for high-quality and only made-in-Aruba arts and crafts called Cosecha located in downtown Oranjestad.
