Cost of Living in Aruba

Be as prepared for your holiday as you can be, so you can experience ultimate relaxation while staying on our island.

Whether you're on a budget or you're ready to splurge, a holiday to Aruba is suitable for everyone, whatever their budget might be. 

If you can see yourself taking long walks on the boulevard, enjoying some sea breeze, and doing (water) sports, then Aruba is the perfect place for you. Here’s everything you need to know about the costs of living in Aruba. 

How much does it cost to live in Aruba? That question might pop into your head before planning a holiday. Knowing what you can expect in terms of costs is an important way to prepare for your stay. 

A holiday in Aruba is as affordable as you want it to be. If you book a luxurious resort, take a taxi everywhere and only order the most expensive drinks on a menu, then you might spend more money than the average visitor. 

If you compare the cost of living in Aruba vs the U.K., it is quite similar. Groceries are a bit more expensive since agriculture in Aruba is limited and almost all food needs to be imported. Prices are 5-10% higher. You can save on bottled water since Aruba’s tap water is perfectly safe to drink. 

We’re just getting started with the amazing effects Aruba has to offer. Dig into your trip details below to unlock a Caribbean experience that will leave you sunnier, happier, and (of course) a little more tanned.
