Louis Vuitton/Gucci

Hello

Can someone tell me what the sales tax is in Aruba? And are the prices of LV and Gucci the same to US prices? I have heard it is less in aruba but would like to confirm with someone that has been there recently.

Thank you

The sales tax in Aruba is 1.5%. Have absolutely no idea about pricing. St Maarten and St Thomas have great jewelry prices. Aruba, just so so.

Same prices as home. Have bought Gucci rings , they were the same prices as the store at home.

Happy shopping. Beautiful Beritling watches if interested.

So I guess watches would be the same. I was told they were not as cheap as st. Thomas but we're still a good bit cheaper than in the states and was really look forward to buying a couple.

Lots of Watch stores, know your price of the watch's you want to buy in the US, so you can be sure if you are getting a better deal.

The lv bags are same price as states BUT THEY tack on 1.5% tax to the price they give you.

I thought it would be "duty free" ???

Found the LV prices same as back home, might be saving about 40.00 on purchase of a bag 950.00. I found the Gucci purses prices are better than back home.
