No pool here. (Not yet anyway). I guess that would consume a lot of water due to evaporation. Our home is occupied about half of the year but the water consumption doesn't increase that much. The $100.00 per month is an average for the entire year. We had bills as low as $35.00 for the month and as high as $200.00 for the month.

i have a friend who sent me this message re: your cost of living questions (she does not post to social media)
here is her reply:
I saw the forum post about living costs....aqua man needs to put a lock on his meter.
We average afl40 for water and afl 525 for electric....that includes the AC (inverters) running 24/7 in the bedrooms.
We spend about $250 at Lings per week. We eat in, maybe take away from the local place down the street once a week.
Child care is expensive and their kiddo will probably need the International school...check the website for prices.

I was wondering if anyone would like to share ideas about cost of living in Aruba .We are looking to know more about this because some say it is not as expensive as in Canada but some others say that is has become quite expensive.
We are in our late 30ies and we have 5 year old son and some pets.We don't go out too much maybe once or twice a week and we are looking to have a nice decent life nothing extravagant here.
Any thoughts are appreciated,
