How much does it cost to live in Aruba? That question might pop into your head before planning a vacation. 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 vacationer.
