Aruba is an island in the southern Caribbean Sea known for its sunny weather and gorgeous beaches. For many people, it seems like the ideal place to live. The cost of living in Aruba is important to take into consideration for anyone planning to move there. The average monthly rent for a one bedroom apartment in a prime location near the beaches, restaurants, and shops is approximately 800 per month. For families who prefer a larger living space, three bedroom apartments can be found for approximately 2,500 a month. Utilities such as electricity, water, and gas can be in the range of 345 to 625 depending on the size and location of the house or apartment. At this time, gasoline in Aruba costs 5.08 per gallon. This is higher than the cost of gas in other countries such as the United States, but the island is so small (69 square miles) that residents do not have to use much gas to get around. The cost of groceries can be surprising, as they cost about 30 more than they do in the U.S. In return for the slightly higher cost of groceries and utilities, people who live in Aruba get to enjoy warm weather year round and some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. Aruba is wonderful island to move to permanently, retire, or buy a vacation home.
