    Pearson Airport Duty Free $91.00 (CAD) <-- that is ridiculous... there's no tax exemption AND they're charging a premium
    Aruba Airport Duty Free $51.00 USD $69.38 (CAD – Visa foreign exchange posted $1.36099)

    And the winner is...

    Super Do It Center $50.00 USD $67.76 (CAD -- Visa foreign exchange posted $1.34930)

    It's official: we now buy tequila at a hardware store.

    Price Smart didn't have any Patron Silver in stock so couldn't get a price check on that one.

    This sums it up nicely:

    No... but the most expensive places to buy liquor/wine/beer on the island are "Ling's", "Superfood" and the smaller grocery stores based on previous experience.

    If you look at the top of this thread, it shows a comparison of "Ling's" to "PriceSmart"... "Superfood" pricing is somewhat similar to "Ling's"...a little cheaper in some instances.

    If you can't make it over to the "Super Do It" or "PriceSmart", I'd say the duty free at QB is your next best bet.
