Parking in Aruba

Park your car rental at the clearly marked white parking areas on central locations in Oranjestad.

The busy streets of L.G. Smith Boulevard, Oranjestad Aruba in front of Crystal Casino/Renaissance Mall


To enhance the parking experience in several busy areas in Oranjestad, paid parking has been implemented in Aruba to stimulate parking flow. The paid parking spaces in Oranjestad centre around Caya Betico Croes, also known as the Main Street and the L.G. Smith Boulevard, the main road by the Renaissance Resorts, shopping centres and the Aruban parliament building.

The usual parking spaces are highlighted with white lines to mark each individual space, along with registration numbers. The yellow-lined parking spaces are for employees and permit-holders only and are not available for public parking. Please note the differently coloured spaces as you park your car.
