Much improved over the old terminal. Check the Customs line before you hang out too long in the duty free area. An hour to get through the line isn't unheard of. Once in the gate area, there are few food options and they are all basic. Still that seems to get better each year. There are plenty of car rental options at the airport and cabs are plentiful. Baggage return is pretty slow. If you have preferred status, do know the priority tab on your luggage tag apparently means nothing to the baggage handlers. Your on vacation, don't sweat it. If you have an unlocked cell phone, you can get a SIM card at a booth in the outer lobby for $20. This will give you something like 50 minutes of calling to the US, unlimited incoming calls and unlimited local calls on the island. There is a duty free shop in the baggage claim area with good prices so you can make good use of your time waiting for luggage. Good prices but only 1liter per person. Aruba is awesome!
