    You know you only have to pay duty for more if caught, or declared (no jail time) there has been a lot of other things that have crossed boarders right!

    They will have domestic brands from the states but the prices will be quite a bit higher. We've been trying various Chilean wines when we travel to Aruba and they're really good and inexpensive. I went to both Kong Hing and Ling & Sons this year for wine and each has a different selection. Can't say that I liked one better than the other but we usually do most of our shopping at Kong Hing. There is also a new wine store that just opened up in The Village area across the street from the Radisson - it's located between Papillon and Ben & Jerry's. I went to a wine tasting there one night and they had a pretty interesting selection, too.
