Money Matters :
The Aruban florin is the official currency, which is divided into 100 cents. Silver coins are in denominations of 5, 10, 25 and 50 cents, one florin, 2 1/2 florins and 5 florins. Current exchange rates are AF 1.77 to the U.S. Dollar and AF. .34 to the Canadian Dollar.
ATM machines: Travelers with ATM cards bearing the CIRRUS or Plus System network logos can withdraw cash in Aruban florins. In the Wyndam hotel you can get dollars at the ATM machine. Avoid the casino ATM, huge fees. Many places will take US bills higher than $20 due to currency fraud.
