    does the hotels carry them (i dont mind paying more!)
    The hotel store at Playa Linda did have McArthur milk (from Florida) last month if it is not available at the Mariott. It is walkable from the Marriott.

    The prices are cheaper at the other grocery stors if you can make it there. If you are arriving on Sat. the grocery stores will be open until 8:00 and Sunday until 1:00.

    Hi,
    First, enjoy Aruba, You will have a great time. There are several grocery stores that are all nearby each other. Ling and Son, Certified, Hong King (I think thats it) and Super Foods. 2 of them (I think it is Hong King and Superfoods) are in close walking distance, and I wouldnt worry about your frozen pizza melthing on the way. Also, Since some markets carry some products, but they dont all always have everything, I would recommened taking a cab to one, then walk to the other if needed.

    We got good "american" milk at both. They have a lot of American products, and a lot of dutch products, as welll as other international groceries. The only thing we had trouble finding this time was vegetable baby food for our grandson. Lots of frut baby food but limited vegetable. Otherwise we stocked our pantry and were fine.

    Our tip: We rent a car every time, just for the convenience of having it to go to dinner, shopping, touring, but you certainly dont have to. We go shopping the first day, to make sure we have what we need, and to make sure we use it up before the end of the week. Maybe the first time you cab it, if there is another trip to Aruba, you will feel more comfortable renting a car.

    Enjoy your trip.
