Trip Report Curacao Trip Report

Jump to last reply

Just back from five days in Curacao. May is supposed to be the driest month of the year, yet we had plenty of rain along with plenty of sun.

Flight: American Airlines with a connection in Miami. Going there was fine. Coming back we were delayed about 1.5 hours on both flights. We flew on Weds. On Tuesday and again on Friday, AA canceled the Miami-Curacao flight and on Thursday, they canceled the Miami-New York flight. Seems to happen a lot.

Hotel:Curacao Marriott - I wouldn't particularly recommend it. Rooms definitely need renovation, A/C took a few days to start working properly, food pretty bad and service in the restaurants appalling. Location is good though and beach is ok.

Restaurants: Bistro Le Clochard was excellent. Also had decent meals at La Bahia in Willemstad, Jaanchi's in Westpunt and the cafe at the Kura Hulanda Museum.

Sightseeing: The colorful buildings of Willemstad are beautiful. The Maritime Museum and the Kura Hulanda Museum are both excellent and highly recommended. The first tells the history of Curacao, the second covers Africa, the slave trade and African American history. The synagogue is worth a quick visit. Jan Thiel beach is nice, although there is little sand and you walk down a staircase into the water. And nearby Spanish Bay has beautiful views. Less exciting were the Seaquarium where you can pet and feed sharks but otherwise there is little else to merit the hefty admission fees and the much hyped floating market was no big deal.

I'd recommend Curacao for the cultural sights and there are plenty of opportunities for sun and sea. Just skip the Marriott.
