All of Willemstad is interesting but the Punda side has most of the shops if you want to shop. This side also has a great local eating place called the Plaza Bluei. It is long green building at the end of and pass the floating market. The first and last family there have the best food (at each end of the building). Very good and very reasonable. Buy some fresh fruit at the floating market or a delicious fresh fruit smoothie from the colorful fruit wagon outside of the Plaza Blue I.
On the Ontrabanada side left of the Queen Emma bridge about three blocks is the Kura museum which is a must see.
Stop by the water front and enjoy a refreshing drink. Just relax and people watch.

I think it's obvious by now Curacao isn't by far my favorite place, But Punda really takes the prize for overpriced shops, ugly streets, bad eating and tourist catching souvenir shops.

People from all over and Venezuela come to the floating market to sell their fare. From gigantic Avocados to fresh Watermelon, you'll find it here. You'll also find local and hand made souvenirs whilst visiting this floating market, definitely a must see experience.

We loved walking around town among the historic and colorful streets. A very relaxing way to spend the afternoon. However,it can be very busy when as many as 6 ships are in port at one time. Beware when entering souvenir shops, the employees are high pressures sales people and they do not want you to leave without a purchase.

Loved the Colors of the buildings, the famous pontoon bridge and of course the Oldest Synagogue in the Western Hemisphere!
