the aruba national bank atm fees were decent - comparable to usa rates.
>>> "ATMs are as conveniently located in aruba as they are here in the usa"
----- Would not go that far. Some resorts do not have them. Casinos charge a fee. State where you are staying and someone may know the best/closest ATM to your resort.
here are just a FEW of the locations of ATMS
Travelers with ATM cards bearing the CIRRUS or Plus System network logos can withdraw cash in Aruban florins. Home bank accounts will be debited in dollars at a favorable exchange rate, and a service charge will apply. Before departing for Aruba, it's important to verify whether your PIN number will work in Aruba by calling 1-800-4-CIRRUS.
ATM machines are available at the following locations, all in Oranjestad unless otherwise noted:
RBTT Bank (formely ABN/AMRO Bank):

Are there ATM machines in Aruba? I don't like to carry a lot of cash. If so can I get american money. What are the usual fees?
there are ATMs
when one wants to make a withdrawal, one is given a chioce to have Aruban Florins or US Dollars.
the fee is nominal i think when we hit up the ATM the fee was $2 per transaction
Warning ***** the fee at Casinos ATMs are HIGH******
from liz aruba lover
Cash machines in Casinos charge high fees in Casinos not ATM's. Cash machines you withdraw $$ from your credit card, not checking or savings. The credit card company starts charging interest (which is very high) from the day you withdraw the cash. Some Casinos you will see both a ATM and a Cash machine next to each other.
Thanks for your help. Really looking forward to our trip.
also let your bank know in the states that your coming to Aruba so they dont freeze you account thinking its fraud. Also check to see what your banksfees are because alot charge international user fees.
My suggestion is that you only use ATM's located inside the banks. I know that this is not always convenient but it is much harder to install card readers on the inside bank machines. I would not use a debit card at any retail establishment. I use my credit card for everything and pay it off as soon as it posts to my account. I also monitor my account daily to check for any fraudulent activity. So far, so good.
