    Parking map

    I know, I know, I'm frankly sick of the parking crap... I'm only posting this for everyone's info.

    its an updated map, labeled so we can finally understand it. Hold onto your hats, Palm Beach will be next.
    no need to comment on this, it's just an FYI.

    Any idea what the blue squares represent? I see that the red dots are the parking meters.

    The blue squares are parking signs.

    Here is a link which shows Aruba traffic signs, including parking and non-parking signs:

    well that video Andrea posted shows they have the meter stations in english & papiemento (sic) so that should make it easy. I think if there is a number in the spot you are parking in, you can presume you have to pay at a parking meter whether you see a sign or not. And the fact they take US coins (I'm assuming quarters), will make this so much easier.

    Yes, there is the option to choose the language on the parking meters: English, Papiamento, Espaņol and Netherlands.

    There are lots of square, blue parking signs where parking is allowed, if it's paid parking they point out on the sign "Parking meter".
    If the signs are round with a red circle and a red line, parking is not allowed.

    In the parking lot all parking spaces for the public/tourists are marked with white lines.
    If the parking spaces are marked yellow, those are reserved spaces for people with a parking permission.

    If you park your car in a parking lot with parking meters, you have to remember (or write down) the parking space in order to give this number in at the parking meter. When the ticket is printed out, you will see that parking space number. This is helpful if you have to add some more parking time at any other parking meter.

    The parking guards/police have a tablet which shows them electronically if a parking time has expired. Then they can check if the vehicle has left or is they are late.

    Hope that helps.

    I just parked there ( near Cuba's cooking) this morning and had my choice of parking. The parking machine it is very easy to use. It took me about 30 seconds from choosing the language you want until the ticket is printed. Just place the ticket inside the car on the dashboard. (refer to the attached photo of the parking ticket).

    Retagger, that was great to see the actual ticket. It looks like you paid $5.00 for 2 hours. What is the longest you can park and does the machine take bills? Also, does anyone know if you can park somewhere for free if you go to the Crystal Casino?
    Thanks

    I paid 5 florins ($2.79) for 2.5 hours. The machine does not take bills.
