Getting Around in Curacao
 
 
 

By Air

Windward Islands Air International (www.fly-winair.com) operates flights to the other islands of the Netherlands Antilles of Saba, St Eustatius and St Maarten.

By Water

The only ferry that operates in Curaçao is a shuttle that makes regular trips between Willemstad's Punda and Otrobanda. Ferries are a great way for shoppers to get to and from some of the island's main shopping areas.

Travellers pay nothing for this short journey between shopping centres, and the view from the boat is spectacular.

By Road

Traffic in Curaçao drives on the right. 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.

The speed limit in Curaçao is 45 km/h in cities, towns, and residential areas, and can be 60 to 80 km/h hour on the faster roads. Road signs will be in Dutch and European traffic markings.

Bus

A good public bus service runs throughout the island and many of the main hotels provide their own minibus services to Willemstad. There are two types of buses on the island, BUS. and Konvoi. The easiest way to ride is to go to one of the two bus stations in Willemstad. These include Otrobanda Station, located across the street from the Rif Fort and Punda Station, at the post office, across from the Circle Market.

Taxi

In good supply and recognisable by their signs and also the letters 'TX' on registration plates. Taxis have no meters but fares are standard and are based on one to four people with a 25% surcharge for a fifth passenger and/or after 11 pm. Always agree prices in advance. Tipping, while not obligatory, is usually about 10% of the fare. Some taxi drivers will even be your tour guide for the day, if you ask. But remember to agree on a fee before heading out.

Car Rental

International and local firms are located at the airport and in the main hotels, as well as in the capital. Many car rental firms also require drivers to have a major credit card and be at least 25 years of age.

Documentation: An International Driving Permit is required.
