Aruba: Getting There, Getting Around

jeep safari in Aruba

Getting There

Aruba is a 2-1/2 hour flight from Miami or four hours from New York. Service into Queen Beatrix International Airport is available from American, Continental, Delta, KLM, United, USAirways, and others.

Getting Around the Island

Taxis are available in resort areas or you can have one dispatched. Rates are fixed (no meters), so check with your driver before the ride.

Taxi rates from Palm Beach to Oranjestad run about US$16; you may pay in US dollars.

Rental cars are widely available and traffic is light; of all the Caribbean, this is one of our favorite places for renting a car thanks to that sparse traffic. Driving is on the right side of the road.
