We walked around both Punda and Otrobanda for a couple of days just looking before spending a morning shopping and picking up gifts for family at home. We found UA golf shirts for $6USD. Bought Pandora bracelets at great prices. Each store has something different on sale so take your time. You can't beat the brands and duty free -... More

So much to see. Punda requires about two full days of wandering the streets, the pub and bistros. It is a treat for the eyes and the palate.

Punda is modern yet it maintains that old fashioned look. You can find familiar places like KFC(smile)' right among the ancient styled buildings. Dutch architecture at its best. Which brings me to the amazing moving bridge. My daughter could not contain her excitement when she saw the moving bridge I'm action. A sight worth seeing indeed.

We really liked Punda. We've bin there during queensday and it was crowded. The people where friendly and relaxed. Everywhere was music. Don't forget to visit the floating market. Parking was free and very convenient.

Nice place with some dutch and colored buildings... It's a nice place to visit and to do shopping!! It's a mix between old and modern and Willemstad is also the capital town of Curaçao

Punda is in downtown curaçao, u can shop and eat unlimited. Lot of sightseeing. U can walk over the bridge to the other side of the downtown called " Otrabanda" . Both side are beautiful.

Easy to shop through and some quaint shops and restaurants in some side alleys. Clean. Take the free ferry to get to Riff Fort Village.

The dive guides where very professional and knowledgeable. My dive buddy was not 100% until she spoke to the dive masters, they calmed here right down and and made our experience one of the best we have had!!!!!!
