Curacao Maps

Someone asked about maps. Here are a few I find useful:

caribbean-on-line.com/islands/cr/images/cura…

good overview of the island

http://curamap.com/index.php

this one let’s you search by address, attraction, road name, etc. Plus you can zoom/out, for as much detail as you need.

Drive & Dive is a good one to buy on arrival (Avis gives you an excellent one, as well).

shorediving.com/Earth/ABC/Curacao/index.htm

great resource for learning about various snorkel & dive sites.

Are there road names or numbers for the larger roads/highways? I don't see any designations for the roadways on those maps.

The larger roads are identified on the first map, like Weg narr Westpunt (which you'll certainly use to visit the western beaches). The second map requires honing in on a specific are, but then it does indeed show every street name.

I meant specific "area", not "are".

Thank you.

What type of speed limits do you have on the highways?

"The speed limit in Curaçao is 45 km per hour in cities, towns, and residential areas, and can be 60 to 80 km per hour on the faster roads. Look for posted signs along the road that indicate speed limits and traffic rules. Right hand turns at red lights and stop signs are not permitted in Curaçao. Roads are often dark in the evening and street signs are often missing or not visible, so drivers should exercise additional caution while on the road. Most roads in the Curaçao are paved, but can become dangerously slick when wet. Travellers should beware of pedestrians and animals while on the road, and should consider renting four-wheel drive vehicles if travelling to remote locations on the island."

I'm finding the Berndston in a 2007 edition on Amazon but can't locate a more recent one - perhaps there isn't one? Anything I should be aware of in terms of whether the 2007 map is still accurate?

So, from everything I've read, it seems that the Dive and Drive map can only be bought on the island, it that true?

If so, where is the best/easiest place to pick one up?

Thanks
