“Great to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Very cool bridge that leads you into the town of Willemstad. The ships that come in dock on the other side of Willemstad and you have to walk the bridge to get to there.

We walked the bridge then had a beer at Iguana Cafe. We watched the bridge open and it was very cool to see.

“It's a moving bridge!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

A tourist favorite, the floating and moving bridge that connects Punda and Otrobanda. Don't worry if it closes (or opens?), you now get the chance to either stand on it for the duration. Or you can take the free ferry. Either way, it means a ship is coming in or going out.

“Very interesting bridge!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I've never seen a bridge like this and it was very interesting to watch. We enjoyed watching it open and close during our visits to Punda/Otrabanda. Very fascinating!
