Punda's a nice place to spend a few hours to admire the architecture, explore the small but nice market, and hit the bars. However with Willemstad being a small town, don't expect to spend a lot of time here.

Too bad we did not have more time to shop. Lots and lots of stores and merchandise to select. The linen shop had a particularly great selection.

We enjoyed our window shopping of this lively and beautiful shopping area. I did not find the hawkers to be too insistent and most people were very polite and helpful!! I know its a cultural thing, but I did not feel comfortable buying anything without posted prices therefore we did not stop at any shop that did not have clearly... More

With it's beautiful coloured buildings, plentiful market stalls, floating market and pretty square it's well worth a visit. None of the items on the market stalls had prices, so no idea what they would have taken and did not really want to get into an embarrasing haggle with anyone! I really enjoyed wandering round, taking it all in and, of... More

Went for a day in town. I would recommend when there are no cruise ships in. The people and markets were almost as colorful as the painted buildings. So tropical!

We enjoyed the Punda meeting locals, having a chat. Typical things to shop for and good places to eat. We were there when a cruise ship was in, a little crowded but fun. Check this part of town out, it's a must.

When going to Curacao Punda is a must see. The buildings are unique and very colorful. You can really get a flavor of the dutch architecture when walking through Punda. Be sure to cross to Otrobanda so that you can view have the best view of Punda.

I really enjoyed wandering through Punda. It is very touristy as many people from the cruise ships stop here, but it was still fun. There are many shops and restaurants as well as the floating and round markets. I really enjoyed the afternoon I spent there!
