Aruparking: Parking in Aruba

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

Parking in Aruba

To enhance the parking experience in several busy areas in Oranjestad, paid parking has been implemented in Aruba as a solution to the lack of available parking spaces.

The paid parking spaces in Oranjestad are centralized around the Caya Betico Croes, also known as the Main Street, and the L.G. Smith Boulevard, the main road alongside the Renaissance Resorts, malls and Aruba's parliament.

The regular parking spaces are made visible by 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 regular parking. Please note the differently colored spaces as you park your car.

Tariff for paid parking

The tariff for paid parking in Aruba is mentioned on the parking machine in Aruban Florins (AWG), but you can also pay with American $ cents:

30 mins: 1 AWG=$0.55

120 mins: 2 AWG=$1.11

+90 mins: AWG 0.50 cents for every additional 15 minutes = $0.30

Walking around with coins is a hassle, so good thing you can also purchase a rechargeable Aruba parking SmartCard for AWG 15, -. This parking card comes with a balance of AWG 10,-. Take the card with you back home; the card nor the credit expires! The SmartCards are sold at most hotel gift shops and car rental companies and can be recharged at any Aruparking/Arubus recharging stations.
