I loved Punda, even though many individuals did not speak English I was able to communicate, however some people are not that tourist friendly. The clerks at the bus stations are very rude, they are not customer service driven,More

Punda, means the "point". Here is where it all started. The first buildings on the island when the Spanish discovered the "Isla de los Gigantes": the big Indians. After several wars the Dutch conquered Curaçao and the buildings are almost replica's of Old Amsterdan and...More

Very historical place to walk through, lots of shopping and great restaurant choices. I must say Curacao itself is a great Island but the people should be more friendly and attentive. There would be places you go to either to shop or eat and people...More

A very beautiful place with lots of history. A great shopping and diner area for tourists with beautifully colored houses aligning the water.

While there are lots of shops, most are either junky tourist shops or just everyday shops. There is really nothing special to buy here. There are the usual upscale cruise shops but nothing spectacular. Once you walk the town and see the historic Main Street...More

Beautiful building and tourist shops. This is a must see if you are visit Curacao. Bring your camera and some cash to spend at the shops. Go early in the day to avoid the heat and sun of midday.

We took the hotel shuttle to Punda. Many shops and restaurants. Fun to walk around and eat and shop. Unfortunately, we had to catch the shuttle and did not have time to see everything we wanted to.

Punda is the Other Other Side from Otrabanda which means "Other Side". The Old Town of Willemstad is actually two small cities connected by the Queen Emma bridge and is a great walking tour if you are visiting for a day.

Punta is the equivalent to downtown. This is definitely the more touristy side of the bridge. Many shops, restaurants, and cafes on this side. Almost every place can accommodate American and Dutch tourists, speaking both languages and using both currency. Can easily spend many days...More

Tons of shopping, lots of restaurants and places to sit and have a drink. Fantastic view and fireworks every Thursday. Nice way to spend a morning or evening walking around.
