I was so excited o get to shop in Aruba, but I did do my homework. Pandora bracelets are the same price in the USA as offerred in any shp in ruba. Matter of factk two shops had a higher price. I double cheked on the internet to be sure I a correct. This made me very wary of buying any other jewelry on my trip this past week.
I was also disappointed to find mostly American products for sale and most of those aremade in the Orient anywayand still not any cheaper.
I will come back to Aruba for the sun and relaxation but buyers beware. This is not a bargain shopping paradise. All you save is the tax ratqe and unless yourrate is really high, save your time.
Hmmmm...thats funny....when we were there in December I distinctly remember prices in one of the jewelry stores being 10 % lower than US...There is a price increase going on right now with Pandora in the US, so perhaps you were in the "in between" time...
