Things to Do

Take a Tuk Tuk Tour in Willemstad

Tuk Tuk tours are one of the best ways to learn the history and culture of Curacao. You're able to get through the city streets quickly and see architecture and art while enjoying fresh air. You'll get to see top attractions, along with bright murals around the city. 

Shete Boka National Park

This gorgeous park is famous for its great trade winds. These waves crash against the rocks at the inlet, and there are so many caves to explore.
