Taxes and Service Charges

The departure tax is $32.50 (including flights to Aruba), and the departure tax to other former members of the Netherlands Antilles islands is $8. This must be paid in cash, in either florins or U.S. dollars. Hotels add a 12% service charge to the bill and collect a 7% government room tax; restaurants typically add 10% to 15%. Most goods and services purchased on the island will also have a 5% OB tax (a goods-and-services tax) added to the purchase price.
