  1. We did an inexpensive tour of the island in the morning by taking a taxi into town, walking around, and going to the museum, and then taking another taxi back to the Margaritaville pier. We then spent the rest of the day at the pool and beach at the M. pier.
  2. We would choose depending on the amount of time walking around and not being on the bus too much.
  3. The first time there, we did a morning bus tour of part of the island. We got off at St. John's Church and at a plantation. We would do this type of tour again, as we saw about a third of the island. It was through the ship.
  4. Have been on many excursions in Curacao. The one we liked best is a morning at Blue Bay Beach and an afternoon walking in Willemstad. We went on a ship's excursion to the beach and were guaranteed a ride back to the ship in time.
  5. We took a bus tour of the island in the morning and then went to Palm Beach after a late lunch on the ship.
  6. We took the van taxi at $5 pp. We waited until it filled up- but it was worth it.
  7. We have enjoyed The Melia at Cable Beach. There are many good hotels on Cable Beach to choose from. Have been to several of the other beaches- Cable is best in our opinion.
  8. We also did Blue Bay thru an excursion with the ship. Arrangements must be made to be picked up otherwise. We did not see many taxis around Blue Bay.

    which beach?

    We paid only $5 pp for one way to Palm Beach in a taxi.
  10. Sometimes it's quite hot at the beach- depending on month. 3 hrs. was plenty for us.
  11. We went to a beach for half a day and walked around Willemstad after lunch. Sometimes the sun is very hot for a whole day at the beach.
  12. It is worth it to take an air conditioned bus tour of the island. One can see about 2/3 of the island in about 3 hours.
  13. Cable Beach is really nice on a non-windy day. One can also go to the Blue Lagoon.
  14. We liked Cable Beach in Nassau. Also, the Blue Lagoon excursion.
  15. We liked the Blue Lagoon and the Melia. There are many options at both.
  16. One thing everyone usually likes is the Ardastra Gardens and Zoo. This is a half day excursion.
  17. Thanks for the review. We did the Dolphin Encounter and enjoyed it- had time to swim and sun bathe afterwards.
  18. Have been in Curacao many times. We spent the morning once at Blue Bay Beach via the ship's excursions and walked around Willemstad after a late lunch on the ship. There is so much to see and do in Willemstad.
  19. The restrooms are good to have for a day.
  20. We did a bus tour of Aruba- about three hours- saw alot- stopped at the Aloe Factory, the rock formation, and the bridge area. We saw about 2/3 of the island!
  21. A ship's excursion is good for the first time and perhaps they offer a food tour.

    Perfect Beach

    Palm Beach is good for drinks. We paid $10 -for 2- each way to Palm Beach.
  23. It is really a good hotel- but small beach and pool.
