i've been to Aruba for a holiday and thought the shops were pretty boring. I do remember seeing something and decided to leave it until the last day but, when I went back to buy it the price had doubled. I asked the owner why and was told it was due to the cruise ships docking.She told me every shop doubles the price when the cruise ships were in, however she gave me it for the first priced advertised so be careful.
I am sure it happens in all the ports, Pen. I know someone who has stayed in St Maarten, at a relatives villa. She used to go downtown, to buy jewlery, because once the ships left,the locals came to buy at lowered prices. Beer used to godown to $1.00 a bottle at the bars too.
Trip, with her book & tea!
