Things To Do
If you’ve ever seen a picture of Curacao, you've viewed the brightly colored buildings that line the riverfront. This area is called Willemstad and is best experienced by foot.

A vacation didn’t happen if you don't have the photos to prove it. Set up your tripod, or if you’re fancy hire a photographer and let your first stop be the Queen Emma Pontoon Bridge. A Pontoon bridge is a fancy word for a floating bridge. The Queen Emma bridge guards the entrance to the port of Willemstad and swings open to allow ships to pass through. Be mindful when crossing the bridge, as you may return at a different point if the bridge swings open to give a ship access.
