      Is Curacao similar to Aruba?

      Curaçao Mar 23, 2015 at 6:14 PM

      I visited Aruba last year, and loved it! I am thinking about visiting Curacao, and was wondering if it's similar to Aruba, in terms of windiness, transportation, food, prices, safety, and people.

      In Aruba, it was really windy. The bus and taxi system was wonderful. Taxi drivers would give each other business, and the people in general were the friendliest I've ever met. We would have complete strangers offer us rides, and I was hit on by the local girls on several occasions. And we could walk around pretty much anywhere, at any hour of night, and no one would bother us. And there were no hawkers, aggressive vendors, or harassment by locals. And the locals didn't get angry when they saw a camera, in fact, quite the opposite.

      What about the airport? We had to get 3 hours early in Aruba, they were very lazy and short staffed, and we had to go through customs and 2 security checkpoints.

      Is Curacao the same as Aruba? What are some similarities and differences between the 2 islands?
      I heard that Curacao is more "European" than Aruba. Whatever that means.

      Anyone who has spent at least a few days on both islands, that can provide some insight?

      I've read alot of mixed comments about the Breezes Resort and it makes me wonder what am I really in for. If anyone has stayed there recently please tell me how it was before it's too late!

    • Williamstad cruise visit

      by tonyuna Online Now Mar 24, 2010 at 3:04 PM

      I will be coming to WILLIAMSTAD on a cruise in March 2011, with a group of 10. I would like to find out some information about where the ships dock.
      1. How far is the cruise port from downtown Williamstad (is it within walking distance). We have some people that can not walk great distances.
      2. Is there any shopping at or near the cruise port?
      3. We want to take a tour but do not know which tours are the best. What would be a good tour to take for 10 old foggies?
      4. Can you suggest any thing else to do while we are there? We will only be there for the day.

      Thank you.

    • Curacao Hato Caves

      When you are on vacation on our beautiful island and you need somewhere to go, you want to explore on our island, come to the Curacao Hato Caves. This is one of the most beautiful cave of Curacao. There you can learn a lot of Hato Cave history. When you arrive at the cave, you can see some carves where the Caiquetios Indians religious ceremonies took place about 1500 years ago. In other words, it is a nice historical experienced. It is a pitty to visit Curacao without visiting the hato caves.
