“Explore Punda!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Take a day or two to explore Punda. The streets and alleyways lead to tons of shops and restaurants. The more you explore the more you find! It was a fun way to spend some vacation downtime.

Reviewed September 12, 2013

We enjoyed seeing the different types of buildings and learning the history of the town. Never felt uncomfortable walking.

“Very scenic along the water”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Recently visited Willemstad one afternoon while on Curacao. Truthfully, it was so hot and humid we didn't have a tremendous amount of energy..we did cross the Pontoon Bridge which was fascinating to see in action, and got great photos of the multi-color buildings along the canal. We strolled along the floating market and then in through the town to the giant CURACAO letters and then back out to the waterfront. I can't say we saw any unusual shops or many restaurants that caught our interest--but then we didn't really walk very far due to the young and old in our party. If we returned to Curacao I'd like to see a few of the museum and neighborhoods.

“nice atmosphere”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

There is a very nice atmosphere. Colourful houses, lovely weather and friendly people. It is faraway from home so it is easy to leave all work behind. There are good places to eat and shop and just spend time. I have been there twice ja am going third time next march.

“Most colourful town in the world.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Apart from being an historic city, like Amsterdam in the tropics, Punda is so full of joyful colours. It's a pleasure to walk through it.
When I visited Curaçao after many years in Holland, I fell in love with Punda at once and knew I had to come and live here again.
