Nice little town

Little is a very good description. Some restaurants in the area. Some good some not too good. You definitely have to see the neighborhood. But don't plan to stay very long

Punda is a mix of some European flair, with it's colonial architecture and structure of the old town, but with a Caribbean colorful touch. I absolutely LOVE to wonder around, discovering beautiful buildings, some renovated, some abandoned (which I love to photograph).

It was the posh part of Willemstad. It offers a lot of cool looking houses. Lots of colors and some nice little walks. Quickly visited and well worth it.

Neat area for some tourist shopping. Many little shops, coffee areas and a fabulous bakery or too. Need a souvenir, you will be sure to find one here!

This was my second visit here and I was surprised at the shopping options available for a small Caribbean island. Well organized and generally clean.

From the cruise ship we strolled the floating market and the retail areas around this area. Neat places to eat and look at. Area seemed very safe. It was bright and well populated. We would go back to this area again on another trip

Easy to walk around here and felt pretty safe. Visit floating market and shops. Some good restaurants but on New Year's Day it was a ghost town!
