Last time in Aruba we looked at grocery stores, gas stations, beach stores and found nothing. I'd prefer a disposable cooler but will settle for anything as long as it's not too expensive.

Try EZZZ Brothers on Schotland Straat - the road between Lings and the Texaco station. We had luck there.

The grocery stores carry the styrofoam coolers. I had to use those one year because I forgot to pack my soft cooler. That's like forgetting your passport! They are pretty expensive and very fragile. It didn't last the week.

Saw the styrofom one at super foods. What I do is pack a portable cloth insulated one. Fill it with clothes , etc. and pack it. it takes up virtually no room.

We just ordered a soft cooler from LL Bean. Will easily pack in your suitcase!

we bought a rolling cooler with a radio built into it. We love it, my husband uses it as his carryon then we use it as a cooler when we get there, you can plug your ipod or any MP3 player into it too (earphones also). Linens and Things around 40 bucks

Since we are on the topics of coolers (ha-ha). Is it allowed in Aruba to bring a cooler with 'beverages' to the beach? We a brginging a cooler so we can pack some snacks and waters for the beach, but figured some days we may want to throw a feer beers in there as well. Will anyone bother us if we do so?

Great news - nothing like an ice cold beer while lounging on the beach!:thumb:

:offtopic:Trud, curious where was the photo taken for your avatar? Odd that there are 3 palapas one on top of another like that. :confused:

I was in Riveria Maya, Mexico. The hotel next ours was a smaller Botique type that had recently closed. There was a little beach bar in front, so I assume they may have just been there to sit under while having your drink? They were the only 3 palapas on that section of the beach - it was kind of odd!

Coolers and beverages are encouraged. There are trash receptacles usually nearby to throw away your non recyclables.Beer is expensive on the island but is ALOT more resonable to pack a cooler

I was in Tru Value at Certified the other day. They had lots of beach stuff. I wasn't looking for a cooler, but I'd guess they probably have some.
