The shoppers in your group can start their retail therapy in Aruba’s capital city while enjoying a taste of Aruba’s heritage and historical architecture at the same time. Those looking for a fun adventure can hop aboard one of the complimentary open-air streetcars (designed in San Francisco and utilizing clean energy sources) journeying through the heart of downtown, where both historic Dutch colonial architecture and shopping opportunities await. The route takes visitors on a loop offering various cultural discoveries and shopping opportunities to visitors, who can hop on and off at several designated stops. Shopping malls located downtown include Royal Plaza Mall, Renaissance Mall, and Renaissance Marketplace.
Aruba offers a colorful selection of modern shopping complexes in the resort areas and downtown store-lined streets and upscale malls, as well as a potpourri of unique local boutiques and emporiums. Offering everything from top-name luxury brands to locally made arts and crafts, your group will love our shopper’s paradise
A free hop-on trolley bus will even shuttle shoppers between the various shops along Oranjestad’s signature “Main Street”. Your group can then stroll along the city center’s waterfront boulevard for easy access to a wide variety of specialized jewelry stores and souvenir shops.
Our prices are competitive, and often even lower than in the U.S., while many European brands are priced better here than in Europe. Experienced buyers keep coming back for duty-free shopping and great deals, year-round. It’s no wonder visitors find Aruba’s shopping irresistible!
First Class Aruba can arrange private shopping trips for your group, touring top boutiques and jewelry stories, and even closing stores for our guests to enjoy an exclusive experience. Group VIP shopping cards are also available through Visit Aruba.
