Several excellent supermarkets lie about 2 miles north of town with wide range of canned & packaged goods. SuperFoods is particularly good value.

Nov 2017 - Varadero marina in Aruba is a very good place to haul out the boat, and to leave it for the season.

Good things:
1.Out of Hurricane belt
2.Very professional at the yard, all lifting/launching operation were carefully managed
3.Reasonably priced
4.Close to the airport
5.A good bar/restaurant in the marina.

Not so good:
1. A little bit far from the city and the shops, you must rely on taxi (expensive), a bus (very few during the day), or your dinghy: in five minutes through the lagoon you will be at Reinassance Hotel/harbour in the city center.
2. Rats in the yard, when leaving the boat do not leave any ropes from the deck to the ground, or your anchor chain dangling.
3.The place is close to the airport, so noise and gas smell are dominant.

Electrics and electronics
I would highly recommend Rob Fijn from Radio Holland for any electrical or electronics. I tried many tradesmen from Grenada to Aruba to fix problems I was having with my Garmin system but no luck. He came to the rescue even when his family were visiting from Europe and sorted everything. Thanks Rob things are running perfectly again.
