Fodor's Expert Review Kurá Hulanda Village

Curaçao Fodor's Choice

Kurá Hulanda (Dutch for "Holland courtyard") is the heartbeat of the historic quarter of Otrobanda, and it was completely rejuvenated in 2023 to create a vibrant new village of boutique shops, alfresco cafés, bars, dining spots, public squares, a boutique hotel, and eye-popping outdoor art. It’s an enchanting maze of pedestrian-friendly cobblestone alleys bedecked by a rainbow of brightly colored and beautifully resorted 18th-century colonial buildings. The Kurá Hulanda Museum is still a cornerstone of the square, offering visitors a unique glimpse into the region’s slave history as well as comprehensive exhibits on African art and culture. Live music on weekends nights are popular here now, too.
