someone said it takes US coins. did you notice what kind of US coins, like quarters, etc.
Smoki, I believe there is no limit how long you can park as long as you paid for it. Some parking lots require payment until 7 p.m., others until 11 p.m.
There is a "Smartcard" for parking which you could buy:
Crystal Casino offers free parking! From their FB:

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, you don't have to place the ticket inside the car on the dashboard. You can take the ticket with you as it shows the remaining parking time you have paid for. And it shows your parking space number in case you have to add some parking time which you can do from any parking meter without having to return to your car.
The parking guard/police can see on their tablet the parking space numbers and when the parking time will expire. It's done through a network.
Aruparking told me that to lightly moisten the ticket and press it to the inside windshield. And to take the receipt with you in case you need to add more time at another pay station.
I saw the explanation on the FB of Aruparking. There was as well a post in English a few days ago but couldn't find it anymore. Here is the one in Papiamento:
Brian En Carol Na NL mi ta pone e ticket back den auto ariba e dashboard pa asina e controller por wak e cu e auto ta para legalmente. Esaki ta e caso kinan tambe?
