"Off the beaten path - well allmost" Punda and Otrobanda Tip by jackyveerman

Punda and Otrobanda, Curaçao: 3 reviews and 4 photos


Otrabanda, meaing 'other side' is literally located on the other side of the harbor. Even though some of the main cruise liners dock near the riffort village there are plenty of shops that offer some local flavour.

Worth a visit is Kura Hulanda. A renovated area made by Dutch businessman and filantropist Jacob Gelt Dekker. There are shops, restaurants and a five-star hotel as well as a museum and usually some exhibitions.

What to buy: Many shops have local music and woodcraft.

What to pay: In the more touristic shops around the Brionplein the prices are also higher but the local shops can be found on the Breedestraat.

Address: Breedestraat
Directions: Brionplein or Breedestraat or Kura Hulanda
