    I think many people prefer the USD as most things in the tourist areas are posted in USD- its easier to calculate what you owe/tips and you don't have to exchange what is left at the end of the trip.
    Trip 33 begins on July 15.

    Do I need coins in Aruba? P.e. for shopping carts at Super food?
    And if yes, USD or AWG?

    I have always used a US quarter but I know they take the florin coin that is similar in size.

    I will be honest...Ive never had a need for florins. The closest to needing them was when we dined at Zeerovers and they happily took our USD cash as well, lol.

    superfoods takes quarters or florin, but the last couple trips they haven’t had the carts locked up. There’s been someone there and they hand you a cart.
