Nicely preserved fort, good location for taking sunset pictures. Restaurants inside are quite expensive, but worth a look. Climb the outer stairs to upper walls of fort for good view of Otrabanda side of Willemstad.

It was just a few minutes stroll from the port. There are plenty of tourist shops, bars etc, bu the fort is the star her. It's free to enter and you can walk around the top of the walls - the views are great and you can see why they built it here.

Nicely set in historic fort building and you can walk up on the walls for sea views, but the shops are a bit 'up-scale', bland and pricey compared with Punda. Riffort museum closed for renovation in Feb 2016 when we visited.

This area is attached to the cruise ship terminal, and geared to attracting that clientele. So shops are very expensive and so are the restaurants. But it is still very pretty to visit.

I ate lunch there and had a brownie out of the ice cream spot. The food was great. It's like a small shopping mall. I recommend a visit. I hear dinners there are awesome!

Riffort Village is a nice place to enjoy a drink and people watch. There is free parking above the shops. Shops are over priced but all the staff very friendly. You have to give it a look when visiting Willemstad. If you are just here for the day at least walk around.

This area has lots of shops and restaurants. I is actually an old fort. We enjoyed walking through and there are good views from the top of the walls of the surrounding area.. it seems to cater a bit to the Cruising set since is near the pier. We did have a very good Frozen Majito. Also they were selling... More

This place was a lot of fun to visit. We loved the shops and bars here. The casino was there, but we didn't stop in. Definitely stop by
