    i did buy some sorbet with no dairy ingredients at lings in jaunuary but i cannot remember the brand name.
    our lactose intolerant guest was thrilled with it.
    made for a nice snack/treat

    Asking about the number of supermarket in Aruba

    Hi Aruban folks !

    Now I'm assigned to do a study about the supermarket and reatil stores in Aruba.
    Unfortunately, as i've never been there before, I'd like to ask for your help to estimate the number of supermarket and stores in Aruba Island please.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    1st trip to Aruba booked! Grocery store?

    Hello all! We are officially booked for our first trip to Aruba in February! We are staying in the Palm Beach area. Since it's a short trip (5 days) we would just like to stop at the Grocery store before we get the hotel to get it out of the way. We just need bottled water, beer (suggestions for my BF who drinks Summit Pale Ale), vodka, diet Mt dew, and cheese/crackers. Where should we go and how much extra do you think the cab will charge to stop? Thank you!! Soooo excited to try a new place other than Mexico (but loved all our trips there)!!!

    sorry to hear that your trip is short, but still it is a great trip!!
    welcome to the forum.
    the grocery stores are on the way from the airport to the hotel/palm beach area.
    you can either take the can there and have the driver wait. OR
    say bye to your taxi driver at the grocery store and pick up another when you are done shopping.

    Pack water bottles and bring with you, or buy just a couple of bottles of water in the mini mart and refill from the tap and keep in the fridge, or on ice.
