This is one of the most recognized areas of the Caribbean and no wonder as it is photographed very often! The coloured buildings are a sight to behold, and make sure you walk by all of them - each has it's own 'personality' and story...More

Loved all the pastel colored buildings. Ate lunch at a sidewalk cafe w/wonderful views of the pontoon bridge and even got to see it open and close so a large yacht could pass through.

While in Curacao we visited Willemstad. The Handleskade is just like it looks in photos. Make sure to visit!

We loved this boardwalk for the colorful lights at night that was so serene and beautiful. The Pontoon bridge is fantastic as it moves aside to allow the Cruise ships in. Many restaurants and ice cream shops line the Boardwalk as well as street vendors...More

A picturesque shopping area by the waterfront. The buildings are painted in pastel colors and have unique architecture. The Queen Emma Bridge is lit up and the sidewalks are lively. A fun place to walk around and take in the sights.

This is one of the pictures of Curacao you see in any holiday brochure. Best viewed from the bridge or the other side of the water. We were lucky that the bridge opened as we were having lunch, so the ferry service began. We sailed...More

Very colorful and clean buildings. Feel very safe during the day. People are friendly, city geared to tourism. Floating bridge is fun. Many languages spoken but no problem in communicating in English.

I will be visiting Curacao in September. What is the best way to get around for sightseeing? Public transportation? Bicycle? Scooter? Rent car? Pay $$ for tour guide? Thank you for your insight.

Hi, It depends on three (3) factors: what you want to see (where you want to go), how much you want to spend and how much time you have. If you have one to two days and want to enjoy most attractions available, it may take... More
