We'll be going for our annual visit in September in 2 weeks. Last September we were getting conflicting information about downtown parking - some said we longer had to feed the meter & some said we still had to pay. On a trip to Orangestad last September we asked a store clerk in one of the Seaport stores & she said we no longer had to pay, but we observed people paying at the meter.

I heard they are towing down there not just booting the car anymore.

I got an email from Hans at Tropic & he mentioned that you have to pay from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM - after 3:00, you don't have to feed the meters.

That is like it has been the last year or so. No changes then.

Take care not to park between the yellow lines, not even after 3 pm!

Yes - aware of the yellow lines. What annoyed me last year was that there were many open parking spaces with the yellow lines, but most of the spaces with the white lines were filled - most of the cars in those spaces had "A" license plates. When I've gone downtown during daytime hours, I've been lucky to find a space in the Ren parking lot close to Casa Tua.

Aruba citizens are allowed to park in the white line spaces as long as they pay the fee.

And the yellowed lined spots are for those who have paid the monthly fee to reserve the spot...they don't have to use it...they just have to prepay the fee!
