Statia Seeking Affordable Curacao for a 4-5 Day Biz / R&R Trip

Jump to last reply

Some expat friends of mine are going from our little island of Statia to Curacao for some business and a couple days R&R, and are seeking an affordable (decent and clean, yet doesn't break the bank) hotel on the island. Less than $150 per night, if possible.

They are also wondering about car rental vs. cabbing it and seeking a rental company recommendation if a car is the better way to go for 4 or 5 days.

Also any shopping tips for those of us islanders who don't get to shop for the basics very often (clothing, shoes, etc....for both adults and children.)

I have yet to venture to Curacao myself, but figured that my Fodorite friends could help me out in some tips in helping them research.

Any advice on lodging (they are possibly looking at Otrabando Hotel on recommendation from some islanders here), car rental agency, and basic shopping would be greatly appreciated!
