“pretty to look at”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

punda is pretty to look at and that's about it. the floating bridge is nice too a good photo opp
with the colourful buildings in the background.
but the shops are very boring looking and there were no good deals. i found nothing there that appealed to me, the only thing i got was a souveneir tshirt.
the merchandise looked old and can get for much cheaper elsewhere.
if i had to do over curacao i would do over as a one day stop on a cruise. spent three days in curacao and could not wait to leave.

“Shopping Area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

The shops are pretty run down & lacking compared to other Carribean islands. The markets are a little seedy & offer a lot of the same stuff.
