Not easy to see from the road but do park the car in the Renaissance car park and walk through the gate to the town. This is also the entrance to the town for the numerous cruise ships that come into the Curacao port. A plaza with cafes, restaurants, a coffee shop, a cheesery and shops and offices. All very...

Beautiful place for a stroll, good options for food (lunch and dinner alike), well known brands and also good souvenir shops - although you'll get slightly better prices for local souvenir at the floating market and with the sellers outside Rif Fort, just by Queen Emma Bridge.

Riffort Village is located in Otrabanda (which means that if you are in Punda you will need to cross the floating bridge or, if there is a lot of ship traffic, you can take the ferry across). Riffort is an historical location although most of the fort area has been very updated, so if you are going to this location... More

While my family shopped for Souvenirs in all of the shops here, I walked around and took in all of the scenery. Walk to the top of the fort and take in the great island breeze and excellent view. Walk all the way around the top level, through the restaurant on the end and it will take you to the... More

They managed to ruin the ruins with tourist traps and commerce. Amazing this is possible at a world heritage site.

We came here for a couple of hours for a change from the beach. There plenty of great shopping and high end stores in Riffort village. If you want, you can cross over the pontoon bridge to Punda for cheap souvenir shops. One of my favorite restaurants Steak and Ribs is located upstairs in the Riffort Village. Go there for... More

The Anchor Bar and Grill on the 3rd story overlooks the ocean with a great breeze and awesome views. Food was large portion. I ordered a quesadilla and my daughter and I split it. Prices were reasonable.

Riffort Village is a small shopping district located in an old fort build right on the coast line of Curacao Otrobanda side. It is a place you can walk through and see many touristic souvenirs. It is also a nice place to just get an ice-cream, some coffee and something to eat (Specially at night). Eating here at night means... More
