  1. RBC Royal Bank 

With more than 10 branches and over 20 ATMs throughout the island, you’ll probably come across RBC Royal Bank during your stay in Aruba. The branches of this Canadian bank are opened every weekday from 8:00 to 2:00 pm - and you can use the ATMs whenever you want to. 

At most of the local, international and American banks in Aruba, the staff speaks English fluently - but you’ll make a great impression if you try to learn Papiamento as well. Plus it’s also a nice way to dive a bit deeper into the culture of the One Happy Island. Are you in? 

What is the best way to get cash in Aruba?

On the One Happy Island, you can pay in USD as well as Aruban florins. That means that, when paying in cash, you can receive both currencies back. Speaking of cash… if you’re in need of change, you can withdraw it at one of the many local, internal or American banks. You can also use a separate ATM; they’re located all throughout the island! One last tip: keep in mind that many stores in Aruba accept credit cards, so perhaps you won’t be needing as much change as you might think.
