I visited based on the strong reviews but sadly when I got here there were no signs and the people I spoke to kept sending me to places where there were ropes across the entrances. Really hard to work out where to go so I...More
The best attraction in Curacao and still being used for its original purpose.Constructed as the main base of the Dutch West India Company it was the seat of government and the main defence of Willemstadt along with several other forts.
Beautifully maintained and preserved the...More
The awe we felt standing in the middle of this complex is hard to explain. Pure history. These are the original buildings and how I wish I had the dates in front of me. But 100+ years. Make this part of your walking tour.
It might be possible to take a tour, but our guide said these were working government office buildings that included a reception hall, etc. We only stood on the outside in the hot sun and stared at them. If you are interested in colonial architecture,...More
This is another great example of the restoration of the historical buildings you will see all over the sections of Willemstad. Many of the buildings were originally white but the reflection in this hot climate was blinding. The government decided to paint the buildings colorful...More
Beautiful building with refreshing colour. There is an officer at the front but does not stop you. No charge to walk through the gate. Pictures are allowed. There is a museum near the back but it's not free. There is a charge. Nothing really memorable...More
I checked and it said niether locals or tourists aren't allowed there, only fishermen coming in from sea. But I saw pictures on Google Earth, so someone had to take them. But I saw on a video that there is a gate with security guards, and they won't let you in. I also notice there is a hotel there. Do you have to go through the hotel to get to the fort? Is it trespassing? How do you get to this place?

we stay at divi all the time and that is the way in, in fact our unit is at the top of the hill right at the fort. They have to let you in, all beaches and parks are open to the public in St. Maarten. You do have to walk through the resort but no big deal. There is a bar on the way back down that you can stop and "refresh" yourselves at

Answers: 1. Yes, you can easily walk to the floating market. When you get off the ship you will follow all passengers towards Riffort Village/Renaissance Hotel. You will see the St. Annabay and the floating bridge on your right. Cross the bridge, take a left and follow the walking path along the water (water is then on your left). This will lead you right to the floating market. 2. The Liquor Distillery at Landhuis Chobolobo is about 15 minutes by car. 3. To get to the synagogue -->...More
