Curacao Island and Beach Tour
Your tour of Curacao, rich with culture and natural beauty, begins with a scenic drive through the Otrabanda residential area of Willemstad, the capital. The area's impressive history has earned it designation as a UNESCO World Heritage City. You will view the St. Anna Bay, an inlet that bisects the capital city, dividing it into two notable regions. At the west entrance of the St. Anna Bay stands the Riffort, which was built to protect the city in 1828 and is now filled with restaurants and shops. Pass by the Queen Emma Bridge, a floating pontoon bridge known for its beauty and function as a moveable bridge that allows vessels to enter the bay. Cross the Queen Juliana Bridge, which offers a colorful view of Willemstad's unique pastel colored buildings.
Your first stop is the plantation house Chobolobo, where you can see how authentic Blue Curacao Liquor is made while enjoying some tasty samples. Next, the tour takes you to the east side of the island through the Spanish water area, where views of the cliffs along Caracas Bay will take your breath away.
A two hour stop at Mambo Beach will give you the chance to enjoy this beautiful beach and the water. Bring your sunblock and comfortable walking shoes. Discover Mambo Beach Boulevard, a unique concept for the island that combines shopping, dining, entertainment and the best beach Curacao has to offer.
The tour concludes with a pass through the Scharloo area, a historic Jewish neighborhood with colorful architecture marked with unique elegance. For those who want to experience the sights and climate of Curacao, this tour can't be beat.
Please Note: The entrance fee to the Mambo Beach is included; however, amenities offered by the beach such as beach chairs and access to the swimming pool, are not included.

Enjoyed this tour very much. Learned a lot about the island. Tour guide was knowledgeable and provided insights into the government, people, and culture of the island. Enjoyed very much the visit to the Curaçao Liqueur factory. Mambo Beach stop was relaxing and a nice way to end the tour.

This again was a great tour. The guide was very good. She was a woman and was very humourous yet well informed about the island. The Curacao factory was fun and interesting. Thank you for a lovely time.
