Grocery Store
“Superfood is my favourite place to do groceries. It has a variety of Dutch products and popular American brands. What I like about Superfood is the cleanliness of the place and their fresh products. Take notice: Aruba has a ban on single use plastic bags, so you need to take a grocery bag with you for your groceries. I am providing one in the guesthouse which has printed pictures of Aruba's flora and fauna, made by an Aruban nature photographer.”
