I know it has only been a few weeks since tourists have been arriving in Aruba, but my wife and I were wondering if the malls were open on Palm Beach. We like to walk around there in the evenings as well as having dinner in a few nearby restaurants and taking in a movie or two.

The Caribbean Cinema is open - their Paseo Herencia location (if you didn't know, they took over the old The Cinemas location in Paseo, so there are now 2 Caribbean Cinema locations, one in Palm Beach Plaza and the other in Paseo).

Some of the stores in Paseo are open, though to be honest I still haven't seen a lot of folks walking through there yet, so more store owners may be waiting for the tourists to return before re-opening.

I'd say it's about 50/50 on the restaurants - Smokey Joes just reopened the other day, all the restaurants that are part of Gianni's group (Gianni's, Azurro, Azia, Daniel's, Amore Mio) are open.

If there are specific restaurants or stores you're curious about, I _may_ be able to tell you their status...

Thanks, bryanzs.
Even when we stay on Eagle Beach we usually cab up to the malls/restaurants 3 or 4 times a week.
We like to eat at Smokey Joe's and Iguana Cantina, among a few other places --- like Bugaloo, Pelican's Nest, Matthew's.

Though I haven't been there myself, I've read that Bugaloo and Matthew's is open.
