It was a nice area to visit and do some shopping. The area was great to get to know the locals and the food was #1. The locals told us the best place to eat and they were right!

Willeemstad is a lovely little town and small enough to walk round in an afternoon. There are good bars and restaurants all fairly close to each other close to the main entry from the sea in to the inner harbor. There is a pontoon bridge there that is moved every time a ship comes or goes so to get across... More

It' worth a visit with it's buzzeling atmosphere and friendly people, good food and nice scenery. But we were quite shocked over the prices in the stores, so don't expect to go on a shopping frenzy if you are on a budget. But if in Curacao, this is a must.

The first time I visited Curacao was in 1970. After that I have visited the island many times and I have seen the decline. What was once the pearl of the Caribbean (vacation, shopping etc.), is just a shadow of it's self today. The criminals of (oil company) Shell played a major part in this. Many shops have closed, but... More

From here you'll find probably all the souvenirs you need, and some food to get rid of hunger. Everything to sea is next to the narrow/channel leading to the (oil) harbor. Basically that means the houses which look the same as in Amsterdam besides these are much more colorful. On the streets you'll just see gift shop after another, banks,... More
