    Amazon Delivery to Aruba

    So... Amazon DOES deliver to the island - we ordered a few essential things during the pandemic that we couldn't get on the island (try as we might to shop local). We ordered February 16th and received the package by the end of the month. Not bad.

    There's a catch though: they'll only deliver certain items from Amazon directly - I think it's UPS (or a subsidiary) who does the on-island delivery to your doorstep.

    If you want open access to Amazon products, you have to use a shipper through Miami. We've used one with mixed results on timeline.

    One of the benefits of using Amazon directly is they do the customs/duty right at checkout so you know what you're up against in add-on costs.

    So, if you can wait, you can get it done through two different methods.

    Yep, sorta off topic. Shipping is important if you are living there.

    Congratulations!

    Lots warmer than Canada.

    Thanks, Robin! A few winters ago, we once left Canada and it was minus 29C (colder with wind chill factored in) and arrived in Aruba and it was 29C. I turned to Jeff and said, "We need to get the <<expletive>> out of Canada before the weather kills us!"

    Done.
