    Where can I buy a cooler on Aruba?

    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 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?
