    Venezuelan's and the beer situation?

    Just checking in to what to expect when I get there. Are they still buying it off the shelves?

    I did not get to visit the supermarket on this trip but I heard they started enforcing rules on who the let in to aruba. They have to carry cash I think $500 for a set number of days and more for a longer stay. If they don't have the cash and are just carrying credit cards they will not let them pass immigration and they will be put but back on a plane to Venezuela.

    We had no problems at Superfoods. The beer aisle was well stocked. At the rate we are going we may be more of a problem than the Venezuelans
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Ha ha ha.. Good one Tracy!

    I also bought beer at a mini market at la cabana the first day because I was too lazy to go to Superfoods which was a 15 minute walk for me or 30 minutes round trip. Usually I walk and cab it back for $7.00 because I buy too much. I paid $20 for 6 Balashi from La Cabana Mini store but I noticed the receipt had 3 different taxes that came out to 4.5%. Unbelievable! I also bought a few cold beers at The Market At the Allahambra mini mall and it was cheaper about $2.69 each and only a small local tax. They also have large Pastechi for $2 at the deli there. Its like an empanada but better. Goes good with a beer. I had a ham and gouda which was awesome. I which i had bought a few to go. Next time!

    There's tons of beer at Ling's, Superfood and Price Smart. No worries.
