    First time renting a vehicle in Aruba, any good places to get road maps?

    I know I'll get one when I pick up our Jeep but I'd like to have one in advance. Any idea where I can get one online? I've visited a dozen sites but haven't been able to find one.

    We purchased this map and love it! It's laminated and pretty detailed. I have seen them in Aruba as well, but we purchased ours from this website. Amazon also sells it but they have been out of stock for a while. Good luck!

    Google Maps is a good place to study the road maps online. You can also view the satellite images of the island with Google, which I find gives you a better idea of the actual terrain than a map does.

    I used Google in advance of our trip, and then picked up a road map from the Hertz desk at our hotel when we arrived.

    also go to a website and become familiar with the road signs, they are pretty easy once you get familiar, have fun and it is pretty hard to get lost

    I know for a fact that they sell the laminated maps in the giftshop inside the holiday inn. We have 3 maps now, since we always forget to bring it and have to buy a new one. Costs $8 there. Enjoy the trip!
