Trip Report Curacao is actually amazing!

Jump to last reply

I just came back from Curacao and I am pleasantly surprised.

The Renaissance Curacao Resort & Casino was lovely. It was situated right in Willemstad. The capital city of Curacao, Willemstad is a lively town with colorful Dutch architecture. Willemstad also offers some interesting museums such as Museum Kura Hulanda, which pictures the history of the slave trade.

It was nice to eat at one of the restaurants overlooking the Emma bridge, a pontoon bridge that is hinged and opens regularly to enable the passage of ocean going vessels. The bridge is quite fun! I was also surprised at how many nightlife there were. Bermuda discoteque was top notch!

The beaches in Curacao are nice. Snorkeling and diving are the best thing to do in Curacao! So much to see underneath the water. My favorite beaches were Porto Marie, Caracasbaai and Sonesta.

Most people in Curacao are very kind and helpful, even though i did find some people that were a bit reluctant to help but overall they are very nice.

The food is also good but the service is a bit slow. But who cares you are on vacation! The last day I ate at a very nice Chinese restaurant. (I dont remember the name, Saiko or Saiku, Saika )

Overall, Curacao is truly a hidden gem in the caribbean that is worth visiting!

I´ll be back!!! (I am already boooking for January)
