Spectator Sports in Aruba
Compleho Deportivo Guillermo Prospero Trinidad. You probably won't find Arubans singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," but come soccer season (late May–November, with matches on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday) or at track-and-field meets, some 3,200 spirited fans pack into this complex. Events open with the Aruban national anthem, a display of flags, and the introduction of any old-timers in the stadium. Adult admission ranges from $3 to $6, depending on whether it's a local or international competition; children get in for just over a dollar. Regardless of what's on, you can hit the snack bar for such Aruban favorites as pastechi (meat-, cheese-, or seafood-filled turnovers) and bitterballen (bite-size meatballs), which you can wash down with a soda or a local Balashi beer. Stadionweg, Oranjestad. 297/582–9550.
