We shopped along here while visiting Curacao and enjoyed the many shops they had to offer. We also enjoyed looking at the Fort. Then we walked across the floating bridge into curacao.

After a busy day snorkeling in Curacao, we took a stroll thru the village. Numerous shops and restaurants, live music and very clean.

Very commercialized view of Curacao. The bars are nice, the view from the fort is nice. Don't expect to hang around for hours on end.
