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.

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

Although you are learning some history this is a cute little spot where there's a variety of restaurants to choose from for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There's a few shopping boutiques and it looks like there spots for more to come. This also connects you to the renaissance hotel where they have other high end shops, casino, Starbucks and a...

When in Curacao take time even if just to walk around Riffort. The views are great and the shopping is also good.

I guess this area is the rich shopping, hotels, restaurants kind of area. Rif Fort is the proper name with a neat history. This place has little souvenir shops but also higher end shopping places in or nearby.
