One of the main shopping districts in Aruba is downtown Oranjestad. Everything from flea-market-type stalls with handicrafts and cheap souvenirs to high-end jewelry and Swiss watches are found within steps of each other. Designer fashions, duty-free perfumes and Cuban cigars abound, too.
No tax and low duty make for some excellent bargains. Take the new free eco trolley that loops through the main streets of downtown to see what is where.
For night shopping, head to the thoroughly modern multi-story, indoor Palm Beach Plaza just off the main Palm Beach tourist strip.
