Go to the smoothie stand and get a smoothie made with fresh fruit. Nothing like what we have in the states. Far better. Also, this is where you will find Kura Hulanda. You must go there.

Just across the pedestrian bridge from Punda, this area also has much to offer in the way of shopping and dining, a bit more upscale.

We found Willemstad in general to be underwhelming. There are a few interesting attractions (in Ostrobanda, the Kura Hulanda Museum), but otherwise it wasn't that exciting to walk around. I would plan a day in town because it seems like it would be a shame...More
