Enjoying a one week stay in the Luxe Apartments right on the harbor front. Loving watching all of the boats passing and cafe life on the street below. Such an awesome experience. If you want peace and quiet during the day then this is not for you, but if you love boat and people watching and close proximity to shopping... More

Punda is hands down a very pretty town. It is great to walk through and you can relax at the restaurants, by the Curacao sign etc. I would definitely recommend walking through it and visiting the many stores, but especially the local market.

Good place for a walk, nightlife and trendy bars, specially in Pietersmaai. A little bit of care walking there alone or late hours.

The area close to the bridge can be considered exotic with its floating market, open market and a some stores around. A few restaurants with local food (I did not have the stomach to try). Looks as poor as it is with several stores closed and waiting for investors that may never come. Parking lot or get your ticket at... More

We parked at Otrobanda and walked over to Punda via crossbridge. Punda is a little scarey at night. There are a lot of places to drink and eat during the day. During the day it is nice to walk around. Lots of shopping.

We enjoyed visiting Punda. Enjoyed walking around all the shops, sipping on a fruit drink, and having lunch. We bought a few souvenirs...and just enjoyed seeing and feeling what the culture is like in Curacao. We also walked over to the floating market...if you stand on the bridge you can get a great pic of all the boats that come... More

This area has tons of places to shop from local vendors to big names (Ralph Lauren, Victoria's Secret). There is a large round building just off of the floating vendor market that is a sort of local flea market. Lots and lots of booths with local selling everything from herbal cures to sandals to handmade jewelry to hammocks. There aren't... More
