Curacao

Flight home from Curacao

We had plenty of extra time before our flight back to New York City, so prior to going through security, we sat outside and snacked on some food, while trying to lure Pokemon... I watched a couple of real life birds too. They were super cute; o...

Shopping in Curacao

Shopping in Curacao is (almost) a completely different experience than shopping in the United States. Like I said in my Curacao Day 1 post, there aren't really any big name stores I've grown to rely on over the years, i.e. Walmart, Walgreen's, Cos...

Island Time

Relax, we're on Island Time Today, was a great day except for the fact that the Boo was in an extremely impatient mood and rather than being on 'Island Time' as he always likes to say, was instead on 'City Time' and was therefore, being rather deman...

Kokomo Beach

On our way to go scuba diving at Kokomo Beach in Curacao, our dive guide, Herman, told us to keep our eyes open, because we were going to be passing by a bay that is a popular hangout spot for flamingos! How awesome is that? Sure enough, there ...

Scuba Diving Curacao

The view under water Once we were under the water, we saw some pretty spectacular coral reefs, filled with lots of fish and large sea sponges in vivid shades of purple and red. Everything was new and unexpected with creatures hidden in nearly every ...

Playa Forti

Our goal today was to take it easy and really enjoy some of the nature that Curacao has to offer. After walking around Christoffelpark for awhile, we headed a little further West to Playa Forti, a beach known for it's turquoise water, and for the ...

Christoffelpark

Today was all about enjoying nature and exploring the Western side of the island, aka Westpunt. My cousin as well as a friend of mine, both recommended that we check out one of Curacao's National Parks, Christoffelpark for some hiking. Although...

Zest Restaurant

What we ordered: Steak Tartare served with an arugula salad and fries - prepared to our liking right at the table. Who does that? It was perfection! Smoked salmon sandwich with a dill sauce, served on luxurious white or brown bread. We got a k...

Papagayo Beach

The atmosphere at Papayago Beach is definitely on the posh side with beautiful white sand and a gorgeous infinity pool that seems to merge right into the ocean! There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and they all offer amazing views of the...

Exploring Rif Fort

Inside Rif Fort Rif Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is just a short walk from the Swinging Old Lady. My first impression of the fort is that it feels more like a tourist trap than a historical landmark; there are more souvenir shops and resta...

Swinging Old Lady

PREVIOUS POST: Walking Otrabanda Queen Emma Bridge The Queen Emma Bridge in Curacao, known by locals as the "Swinging Old Lady" is a pontoon based pedestrian bridge, that swings to the side of the riverbank in order to let boats pass through. Th...

Walking Otrabanda

Walking Otrabanda By late morning, boo twists my arm to go for a walk outside of the hotel complex. Before agreeing to the idea of leaving the hotel by foot, I ask two employees if the surrounding area is safe. Remember all that urban decay th...
