Island Transportation - Getting Around Aruba

Rental cars, taxis, buses, and personal automobiles are the most common methods of travel in Aruba. The majority of the roads are paved, but towards the interior of the island you will encounter unpaved roads. With a total of 800 km of road, 287 km are unpaved.

The most econnomical option for your island transportation is "Arubus". The busses won't take you out on the back roads of the island but will transport you efficiently between Oranjestad, San Nicolas, Palm Beach and most major beaches and the hotel areas. Bus stops regularly serviced by Arubus are also located just outside the airport. There is daily bus service all along the hotel strip. Fare is US $ 2.30. There is bus service every 15 minutes from 5:45 am until 6 pm; buses then run every 40 minutes until 11:30 pm. The central bus station in downtown Oranjestad is located across the road from the cruise terminal next to Royal Plaza. For up-to-date information please see Arubus Information

There is an abundance of international and local car rental companies but only 10 of them operate from the airport. Others have a shuttle service between their office and the airport.

Information about public parking at the airport may be found Here

You can even entertain your wild side and rent a genuine Harley-Davidson Motorcycle for a do it yourself or guided tour.
