Have a beer at one of the many restaurants, and watch the bridge in action! We ate at The Iguana and it was delish!

This is the way you get across the bay by car from Otrobanda to Punda. The bridge is high and modern. So pretty. Granted, it's a form of transportation, but we had to cross it the night we drove to Fishalicious, and I'm glad we had an opportunity to do it.

While there in April, the bridge was under repairs - and traffic was awful coming and going! But absolutely beautiful views from this HIGH bridge!

Great fun to walk across the bridge, but even more interesting to see it pivot to the side for large ships. Free ferries spring into action when you cannot cross on the bridge.

There is very convenient parking in the mall on the other side of the bay from Punda - A short quite beautiful walk across the bridge gets you to the old capital of Punda.
