Was wondering about atms and the kind of money used in Aruba. Is U.S. money accepted places? Is there an exchange rate?
USD is accepted everywhere the exchange rate is 1.75 afl=1 usd.
Us $ accepted everywhere including taxis and buses. ATM machines are also available but will give you Aruba Florins.
Best to use a mixture of credit cards, cash and traveler checks
and avoid the hassle of converting Florins back to dollars.
We didn't use ATMs alot, maybe twice. But I'm pretty sure we got USD out of the machine at Marriott and the one we used downtown. (I honestly don't recall seeing a Florin at all.) ??
I just asked my husband, and he can't remember converting from Florins (or using them) either. But our brains are mush today....
Hey but the casino's will pay you back in US dollars if you gamble with US money right?
Only dealt with USD in the casinos, as well.
