Willemstad, Curaçao

CURACAO EVENING TOUR

DETAILS

  • 2
    hrs Estimate Duration

Enjoy a leisurely walk through the historic section of Willemstad in the evening, when temperatures are cooler and the city lights are wonderfully radiant. As you meander along, you will pass a collection of colorful, Dutch-inspired homes overlooking the canals. This colonial architecture and the district’s European-style layout earned Willemstad a UNESCO World Heritage site designation. Even so, the architectural highlight may well be Fort Amsterdam as it was constructed in 1634 and a cannonball from a conflict with England is still lodged in one of the walls. You will also view the 19th-century Queen Emma pontoon bridge whose colorful arched lights shine brilliantly on the water at night. The orange Dushi sign is another icon; the word means “sweet” in Papiamentu, the official language of Curaçao. Later, you will toast the experience of walking through Willemstad with a Blue Curaçao, a sweet cocktail made from Laraha oranges grown on the island.
