We used Fast Phones. Charles was great and it was very convenient. Good pricing, too.

Are you renting a car? One of the car rental agencies throws in a cell phone rental if you rent a car for a week?

Do you need to/expect to make a lot of calls back and forth? If you just need it in case something happens for emergency contact, you could probably buy a US prepaid phone for $50 or less in the states & use it there. The price per minute is fairly high, but if you don't really plan on using it much, you might make out okay. We have AT&T, so we just brought out phones in case we needed them but never ended up using them.

Here is the site we used when we rented a cell phone in aruba. the rates were very reasonable. We stayed at the (then) Wyndham

and they delivered the phone to us at the hotel, and picked it up from us on our day of departure. Also, they will give you your telehone number before you arrive so that you can let people know. chapeau@setarnet.aw.

Royal Car Rental is the company that gives you a free cell phone rental when you rent a car for at least 5 days. They will also give you the number a few days ahead of time.

Just returned from a 10 day stay in Aruba and rented a cell for the whole time we were there. We rented from arubadiscountcell.com and they were fantastic. The rates are awesome with great international minutes and they drop off and pick up at your resort. Enjoy your trip!!
