Quick cruise stop

Hi

We call at curaçao for five hours. We like walking around and looking at the local area.

How far is the town from the cruise terminal, we would like to walk and have a look around the town and surrounding area and maybe stopping by a casino or two too for the air con of course!

Thanks for your help

Coops,

The cruise terminals are right in the downtown area, so no walk at all. The mega pier where most ships dock is right at the Rif Fort, where there are lots of upscale stores and restaurants in the old fort and the Renaissnce has a large casino. Right outside the fort there are the typical local vendors selling souvenir trinkets. You can't miss the floating bridge, which you can walk across to the Punda section. Have a drink or lunch along the waterway and watch the bridge open for a large ship to pass. More shopping, old Dutch architecture buildings, and photo ops in Punda to explore. Have a look at www.curacao.com to see all that there is to do and see. Enjoy your day on Curacao.
