We were there on a Sunday. Parking is free and only food shops are open, all the rest is closed. This is not bad as there is then less people on the streets. The best view is on the other side of the bridge or...More

It was fun to walk the streets on the Punda. Some narrow, some dead end, but most interconnect in the maze. Lots of shops offering the visitor a compendium of choices.

It doesn't take long to explore Punda. Lots of colorful buildings and the old market. the floating market was not operational at the time we visited. Lots of upscale jewelry stores (no tax) for some reason.

Absolutely gorgeous area, the colors and architecture are out of this world. This area is also the main one shown on magnets, ornaments, and other pieces of art, so it's neat to visit it before you get your souvenir.

Punda is a beautiful place near the port. It has the iconic buildings there. Also, tons of shopping and restaurants. The restaurants a few blocks away from the port are cheaper with very authentic dishes.

There are a number of different shops here which you can easily get some souvenirs. You can negotiate price with the store. Make sure you check what you get and tried on. Some of the products have stains on and are not very pleasant but...More

Anyone visiting Curacao must make the trip to Punda. The quaint little shops and bars that line the streets are filled with both tourists and locals. Beware - Parking on the street is not free in the downtown area and you’ll need change to use...More

We had no trouble finding a taxi at any time. By the way, it was strongly recommended by our tour guide, a local, that if you are out past 9pm on the island, that you take taxi anywhere you want to go for safety reasons.
