    DUTY FREE @ Queen Beatrix ARRIVALS

    well i will be darned! a duty free has set up shop/opened at the Aruba Airport.
    Carries liquor and cigarettes.
    Unsure if it carries other kids of "duty free" things like perfume, cosmetics, jewelry, sunglasses.
    It is in the baggage carousel room/ area and before you walk thru Aruba Customs.
    Reminder 1 liter duty free per person, or pay the duty/tax for any additional bottles.

    They have good prices on liquor. We bought two liters of rum and it was $22. No beer, just liquor , premium brands too and some cigs.

    We only buy beer, wine, and champagne (and we don't smoke) so we never use/buy anything at "duty free".

    When we arrived on July 6, we noticed a makeshift "Duty Freee" area to the right of Customs. Since we had shopped at our departing airport, there was no need to stop. I did however file the idea away for next time. Much easier grabbing a few things in Aruba than hauling stuff down in the carry-ons.

    exactly my thoughts.
    sometimes hauling the liquor in carry on bags and checked luggage becomes problematic with the weight restrictions.

    ........then again, aruba customs will have a fine view of the purchases and sneaking things thru undeclared if over the limit will be an issue to some.

    Bringing in booze to Aruba and picking up additional booze in the Aruba DF store


    Hi everyone,

    I've been reading that you can bring in 1 liter of booze into Aruba per person.

    Also, there have been posts about a duty free store in Aruba's airport. Its in the baggage claim area.

    Can one increase this limit buy also purchasing more alcohol at the DF store in Aruba's airport before you exit the airport?

    Not sure if there is a limit at the DF store or not?

    I will be arriving in Aruba on a Sunday afternoon.

    Most stores where I live ether do not sell liquor on Sunday's or if they do its later in the afternoon.

    Does anyone even know if this DF store in the airport sells alcohol on a Sunday at all?

    Can you tell I'm more worried about booze than anything else?

    1 litre per person of age.
    the age allowed is 16 and older.

    so, if you pick up a litre in boston's duty free AND then pick up another before you go thru aruba customs at the aruba arrivals duty free you will be paying duty on one of those bottles ($10 or $11)

    i do not know if the new duty free store in the aruba arrival area is open on sundays.
