Exclusive Shore Excursion

Willemstad, Curacao
The Heart of Curaçao; Willemstad Highlights, Jan Kok Plantation House with Refreshments

Boasting charming Amsterdam-like canals and gabled Dutch colonial buildings, the Dutch influence is ever present in Curacao. With its candy-colored facades and diverse surrounding landscape punctuated with rolling hills, towering cacti, divi-divi trees and salt flats, the region is truly breathtaking. Willemstad, capital of Curaçao and the Netherlands Antilles, is one of the richest cities in the world in terms of culture and diversity. This private tour will introduce you to some of its most astounding highlights. Travel to the western side of Willemstad, called Otrabanda, which literally means “the other side.” From your coach, view the lovely capital of Willemstad, see the floating bridge Queen Emma which connects both sides. Then, take a scenic, guided stroll through Kura Hulanda Village. The Dutch have left their lasting mark on Curaçao in many areas, but perhaps none as striking as the architecture. Nowhere else in the world outside of the Netherlands are there so many exquisite 17th and 18th Century Dutch colonial buildings accented in uniquely Caribbean influences such as verandas, porches, fretwork and shutters of a rainbow of colors. Pass the famous "wedding cake house" for photos before stopping at the Dutch colonial country estate Curacao distillery, Chobolobo. During your guided tour of the distillery, experience a firsthand demonstration of the fascinating production process and have an opportunity to sample the liqueur. Continue with a photo stop at Fort Nassau before departing Curacao on a scenic countryside drive past the salt flats, a favorite habitat of flamingos. Stop at the Landhuis Jan Kok plantation house before arriving at a renowned local restaurant for refreshments. If you choose, this is a convenient drop-off point for independent sightseeing. Otherwise, a short five-minute drive back to the pier concludes the day’s tour.
