When we told a friend of ours who works for the government and his dad is an Aruba customs agent that we bring steaks, his jaw almost hit the ground in shock. They are members on this forum. As far as I'm concerned, no meats for me

    I think they are looking for booze and cigarettes more so. I bet they didn't even realize what they saw on the screen. What airport did you fly out of?

We make sandwiches for lunch almost every day and even an easy dinner after a busy day.
    Thanks again for this information. I am going to bring some beef from outer freezer. We buy our beef from the farmer and it is much better than we could get in Aruba. I was worried about the amt of time it takes to get to Aruba but it sounds like it will be fine. I have a soft sided small cooler I will pack in luggage. This is only our 5th trip so I am still learning.
