    Also if you import more then the limit the whole quantity is dutiable.

    To export there is NO limit but I'll bet your country does have one...
    Pierre, out of curiousity, where do you get the info on Aruba import laws? Do you have a link we can use as a resource?

    Sorry Pierre....I was worried that Lisa would be up all night researching the answer.

    I'm still wondering how much I'll have to pay, per liter, if I exceed the limit?

    I see you'll be there in just a few days....lucky you! I hope you'll post from the island.

    MAC had 4.5l and paid $29.
    Would it be logical to assume +/-$6.44 per liter?

    Booze

    You can easily save $25 on a 1.75 L bottle, multiply that a handful of times now you're talking a hundred and change, not really "just a few bucks". I've bubble wrapped 3 1.75's(plastic) the last few years in check on luggage as well as 2 1 liter wines(glass bubble wrapped) with no problems. People say the alcohol in Aruba is not much more expensive than US, that's BS. I buy it at the NH Package store and it's alot cheaper. In past years I've always brought five cartons of cigarettes home with no problems, but it sounds like Aruba is trying to now generate cash through fees just like the old USA.

    I do the same thing! Guess it's just part of the game to convince ourselves that we're doing something to reduce the cost of our vacation.

    Guess it depends on where you live. Wisconsin has extremely high tax on alchohol and tobaco (glad I no longer smoke). There's a long running saying in Wisconsin if everyone stopped drinking and smoking, the state would have to double the income taxes to cover spending!

    Seems I just found another benefit to doing AI on the island. No need to smuggle in booze to cover my habit

    Cheap Boooze

    The A/I is great for booze, I did it at the Occidental about 3 years ago, they even had a few top shelf brands. Bartenders always poured a good cocktail. I definately consumed a couple of bottles of Jose Gold that week. I wasn't too impressed with the food though and the fact I'd swim up to the pool bar at 11 AM and start hitting the sauce!
