Just like in the United States, prostitution is illegal in most parts of Aruba. However, there is a city that does have legalized prostitution. This city is San Nicolaas, and it is the second largest city in Aruba. Some people opt to hire a prostitute, or a person who has sex for money, while traveling abroad. This is a very risky move, however, as STDs may be transmitted, a person may put himself into a position to be robbed or injured, and an arrest will be made if a prostitute is hired in an illegal area.
