Driving in Curacao

Driving in Curaçao is done on the right hand side of the road, so travelers from North America and mainland Europe will have no problem adjusting to the movement of traffic. Seat belts are required in Curaçao, and children under 12 years of age must travel in the back seat of the vehicle. Children under the age of four must also be in a child seat. Motorcyclists are required to wear helmets. Travellers from North America and the United Kingdom should have a valid driver's licence with at least two years of driving experience in order to rent a car in Curaçao. Many car rental firms also require drivers to have a major credit card and be at least 25 years of age. As for other nationals, an International Driving Permit is required.

The speed limit in Curaçao is 45 km per hour in cities, towns, and residential areas, and can be 60 to 80 km per hour on the faster roads. Look for posted signs along the road that indicate speed limits and traffic rules. Right hand turns at red lights and stop signs are not permitted in Curaçao. Roads are often dark in the evening and street signs are often missing or not visible, so drivers should exercise additional caution while on the road. Most roads in the Curaçao are paved, but can become dangerously slick when wet. Travellers should beware of pedestrians and animals while on the road, and should consider renting four-wheel drive vehicles if travelling to remote locations on the island.
