    Liquor Purchases

    Is it cheaper to buy my liquor thru duty free coming onto the island or just wait and get it locally? I would be looking at buying Vodka(Absolut), Rum(Bacardi), Hennesey, etc.

    I'll be coming from the US.

    I would read through some of the info at Cheap beer/liquor in Aruba

    http://www.iatatravelcentre.com/AW-Aruba-customs-currency-airport-tax-regulations-details.htm

    Keep in mind

    "Aruba Customs, Currency & Airport Tax regulations

    1 litre of distilled beverages or 2.25 litres of wine or 3 litres beer;"

    Is liquor that expensive in Aruba? Usually, alcohol is cheaper on the Caribbean islands.

    liquor is expensive in the grocery stores.

    it is still cheaper to buy it at duty free and if you exceed your allotment, pay the duty and you are still ahead of the game.
