Interesting question... Do you live on the island? Own?
i feel like you're defending this lovely parking since you CAN find a space. Maybe if you had gotten booted your defending it would change. This is not an attack so don't think it is.😀
The formative stages are gone. This mess is in full swing.
I did contact AHATA, Tourism bureau and Aruparking. I have not heard back.
I urge you all to check out ARUPARKING FB page. It's in Papiamento. Aruba Lisa found it.
It's full of info, well.... If you could read it
BOTTOM LINE.... They need to educate tourists.( I'm sure they don't want me to do it).
There are many ways to do that.
Signage in airports,government flyer glued in rental cars on visors, hotel check- in flyers, pre-paid parking cards, ads in newspapers, etc. Oh wait..... They want the money, so they won't be doing this.
Somebody is making money!!!!!

Right now, it's in its formative stages. One can only hope that the system will be refined and become more tourist-friendly once the government figures out what works vs. what gets people into a rage.[/QUOTE] THAT SHIP HAS SAILED... ITS IN FULL FORCE
