  • 2. Boca Tabla Cave

    Boca Tabla offered spectacular views and amazing displays of force, when the
    water came crashing against the rocks. Apparently 3 kinds of turtle
    species breed at Boca Tabla. We didn't see any turtles, but then I'm
    not sure, when they breed. We did see fantastic rock formations though,
    and we really enjoyed our visit. We came at high-noon, so we drove to
    most of the places because of the heat. But we did walk part of the way
    to the natural bridge, which was worth the sweat.

  • 3. Willemstad

    My first impression of Willemstad could only be colourful. I love the
    architecture and the colours of the old colonial buildings. Willemstad,
    a UNESCO Heritage Site since 1997, is divided by St. Anna Bay into two
    parts, Punda ("the point") and Otrabanda ("the other side"). The two
    parts are usually connected by the famous Queen Emma Bridge, a floating
    pedestrian bridge. The bridge was going through a thorough restoration
    during our stay, so only the pontoons remained.

  • 4. Ostrich Farm

    An ostrich farm is not normally something I would take time out for when
    travelling, but I am very glad, I didn't snob the Curacao Ostrich Farm.
    We had some trouble finding the place, and when we got there, the place
    seemed empty. Inside though we were told that the next tour would be in
    20 minutes. As cruel as it may seem we killed the wait with an ostrich
    burger. As the only two we were driven around the small farm in a
    safari-type vehicle by a very entertaining and informative guide. He
    had us feed the ostriches, stand on an ostrich egg and hold an ostrich
    chick. We spent a very enjoyable hour there learning about something, I
    would never have thought could capture my interest.

  • 5. The Flamingo area

    This will seem sad to most, I know, but I have a thing for flamingos. I find them very elegant, nonchalant birds, and the pink colour is very exotic to me. So when we passed a flock of flamingos, the car was brought to a screeching halt. I could have spent hours just watching them, but my partner doesn't quite share my fascination with flamingos. Curacao is my first live encounter with flamingos. I still find them elegant and exotic, but having heard them "gossip" like geese, maybe not so nonchalant.
