I always use Travelers Checks in Aruba and typically have not had any problems.
When I need cash, I usually have been able to exchange the checks for cash at the hotel lobby. Last year, this was not always the case.
Any suggestions as to where I can "cash in" traveler's checke for cash in Downtown Oranjestad? Maybe the Casino?
Believe it or not....I've never noticed a bank....probably because I've never looked for one.
