Do the prices at the Aruba duty free arrival tend to beat the prices from your airport leaving the US?
As far as Balashi, my husband and I usually a bud light or coors light drinker and we did not like Balashi. American beer is very expensive in Aruba, I like Amstel Brights, but Jon just pays extra for what he likes.
I love that cuban rum too Havana Club and at the supermarket they have regular and special age rums. I also was pulled over by customs for having more than 1 bottle allowed per person and had to pay $11 tax.. It wasn't worth it and I was upset.
