Really had great shopping and nice scenic areas. The local people were friendly and helpful since we rented a car and at times, needed assistance with directions

Nice to walk around and see a little bit of local culture mixed with more touristic spots. Market is great for those looking to buy fruits. Tons of options. Apart from that, the government buildings and the mall, not much to do. The Curaçao letters are worth a picture!

We enjoyed shopping in this area , just across the moving bridge. There is a mall area close to where the cruise ships come in. Right by the bridge area there are a few vendors that have a few hand painted pieces of wood, lots of bright colored buildings. We were told there was a Jewish museum within a few... More

Fairly priced equipment rentals, however keep in mind that the boat tours are only offered in the mornings a few days a week. This information was not published anywhere. We were disappointed, as this is what we wanted to do. The masks were a little leaky as well, and the snorkels do not automatically close when you dive - mouthful... More

I thought the town didn't have a ton to do -- a couple pretty spots but didn't thrill me. I didn't mind the touristy-ness of it at all, it was just small without many points of interest.

A place you can go for shopping, walking around or simply sitting in a bar and have a beer or two. Some good stores, but some closed also. Anyway, if you go to Curazao you have to see it.

The majority of the shops are located in this area. Some great deals can be found here. I do not recall ever visiting any restaurants on this side of Willemstad.

Cruise ships = revenue so this is good for the shops and restaurants along the canal but that being said visit the Punda when there are no cruise ship passengers if possible (you can look up schedules per port online). The Punda has lots of shops and not just the ones I can find in my mall down the road.... More
