Visit Otrobanda, one of the most historically important areas of the capital of Curacao. Within the area, there are over 800 UNESCO-listed monuments. Originally developed in the 18th century, the area now serves as a popular shopping destination. The now redeveloped neighborhood houses many historical merchants’ homes, and offers great examples of Dutch colonial architecture. From here, you can also enjoy panoramic views of Punda and the open sea. Sip on a coffee on a cafe terrace, or visit the stalls set up from time to time by vendors.

  • This part of town is where businesses and restaurants are concentrated for the local people, is, say, is not so tourist and prices are low on the other side of the bridge, here you will find supermarkets, schools, churches, etc. is worth take a look to learn about another part of the island.
