If you want to spend some money, this is the place to come! The cinema sometimes has a 4D experience, so worth checking out. Otherwise, just a typical tourist mall that you don't really shop at normally.

All kinds of shops are here. Also found some restaurants and bars. Access to the Carnaval Casino as well. Can be accessed on foot from the cruise port without an entry fee.

Nicely decorated, but it's quite small. Crowded with touristic busses. We went to several shops, but the employees seem to be a bit tired of the tourists coming in and out.

An easy walk from the cruise pier and also an interesting one. There are a number of very informative signs posted along the way giving you the history of the people and of course of Curacao. There are high end stores but also others, a very lovely Dutch store specializing in Delft porcelain and a great cigar store. Of course... More

This is a spot, just not to be bored. Purely orientated on tourists, especially those from the cruise ships that come by for a day or two. For them it's easily to pass through because it's between the cruise terminal and the Queen Emmabridge and Punda. Some shops are already closed and staff isn't that friendly. There are clean toilets... More

Worth a visit for a walk especially if there's a cruise ship docked but basically it's mostly an expensive shopping area with a few restaurants. Saw a number of iguanas sunning themselves in the shrubbery near the cruise ships. Some nice views of Punda from the waterfront.

This area is a short walk from the Cruise ship port in Willemstad, Curacao. Lots to do and see here with many shops, restaurants, etc. It is also on your way to the bridge which you can walk across to access the main part of town which offers even more shopping and restaurants etc, This is a very touristy location....

This is the entry point for cruise ship passengers. Nice shops and little restaurants. Lots of jewelry stores, but that's normal for cruise stops. While there was a couple of souvenir shops it wasn't overcrowded with that type of shop which was nice. We enjoyed our visit.

This was probably a nice old fort to tour and walk around in before they added bunch of shoppes. If the shoppes they added had been of local artists work it would of been better. The area is now more of a strip mall than a fort. But ya I walked all over the area and enjoyed my afternoon.
