We've noticed while traveling this past year that some places in the states will no longer accept cash. Does anyone who recently came back from Aruba know if there has been any change in the grocery stores or restaurants concerning cash payments. We hope the side street vendors and small businesses still do.

I was there for 3 weeks in November and used cash everywhere except at my hotel - Amsterdam Manor has switched to no cash at their bars and restaurants so I either used my credit card or charged to my room when I forgot my credit card (which was often. LOL!!)

All other grocery stores and restaurants we went to accepted cash except Elements Restaurant but they were cashless pre-Covid.
