    Shete Boca

    Thank you! I don’t know if we are supposed to take down posts (or how). We rented a car from Advance. $75 Met us at the cruise terminal and we were off! Also met us at the terminal when we were done with the car. Spent about 3 hours at Shete Boka (it was too hot to hike anywhere). Honestly one of my favorite places on earth! We went snorkeling at one of the smaller, more local beaches. (Little knip?). No entrance fee and it wasn’t crowded. Snorkeled first a solid hour and I have never been able to snorkel in the past. have a wonderful time in curaçao if you haven’t been before. At Advance, we worked with a guy named Celestino. Doubt it matters. Here is his phone # +599 9 566 2220
  2. Just want to thank the original poster. We used them on Weds and it was simple and wonderful!
  3. We just took the bus. Thanks for all of the info! Our minds were sluggish and kept looking for the booth. Remembered that all we needed to do was get on the bus. I think is was $2.75 a person. Coming home we took one of the old, run-down mini vans. All worked great.
  4. What did you do in Costa Rica? Were you in Limon? Was it safe to wander around?
  5. Exact itinerary we are doing in a week. Is it safe? I have heard both ways. I would love to catch a church service at 9 and then see jungle or sloths or something (idk. Just found church. 1.2 km away) do you think we can catch a tour after 10 and do you think it is safe to walk around? The only port we have ever felt unsafe in was Belize (and we actually had locals turn us around).
  6. Yeah!!! We booked with him after reading everyone’s positive reviews. So excited!!!
  7. Thanks. I like to take a dress for each formal night but my husband went and lost enough weight that none of his suits fit so I guess we won’t be dressing up as much anyway. 😢 always love that part..
  8. Cruised around everywhere and couldn’t seem to find the answer. Thanks.
  9. Hi! We have perused the excursions in Gatun Lake/Panama for hours. We finally booked the Fort Lorenzo tour thinking it took a bus to the Fort and we would be able to see some of the countryside. Now we think it might be a ferry? Can anyone verify? We will be on Holland America Zuirdam on 10/20/19 Thanks!
  10. Further investigation 😉 the star is in the mall. According to my husband, they are building a walk of fame... but so far he is it. He is from San Nicolas and I originally thought something would be there. It looks as if they have amazing murals but not much else (unless we want to go to baby beach).
  11. The bus in Aruba looks so easy! Although I want to go to San Nicolas and my husband wants. Snorkeling tour so we may not have time for both. Is the bus bus in Curaçao so easy? Having a harder time finding info on it. I want to go to shete boka but it seems like it might be too far on the bus? thanks.
  12. We have never rented a car in port. Sounds like you all are pros. How difficult is parking? Driving? I want to go to Shete Boka but not on a tour. It seems like a car might be our best bet and then Kenepa and maybe a couple of other beaches on the way. Anyway, suggestions for car rental?
  13. Okay it is at Paseo Hortencia... so excited! Saw a picture and it just made me excited, but I am a huge Xander fan (and Red Sox). Yeah for baseball!!! And Aruba 😂

    As a local I hope you can help. We want to go back to Shete Boka. It truly is one of my favorite places anywhere. Can you suggest the best way to get there? Last time we were in Curacao we had a private driver who took us to most of the amazing island. I really want to go to Shete Boka and then some beach. Ideas? Thank you so much!
  15. Thank you so much! I will let my husband peruse it tomorrow. He will be so happy. I had been looking into the San Nicolas area because one of my favorite ball players and all things Aruba is from there (ridiculous I know). I then saw the art and thought it looked amazing. Idk. Going to check into Xander a little more. My husband said that they have a Star (like in Hollywood) for him. Hoping to run into him. Lol... rather see him than any star in Hollywood.
