About This Willemstad Tour
Welcome to coastal Curacao, where the flame of exhilaration meets the warmth of relaxation in a tour designed for superheroes and their mortal friends!
You’ll begin by climbing aboard a 38’ speedboat that will hurtle you faster than a speeding bullet across the waves along the coastline. Sharp, rocky outcrops and the thunder of hammering breakers will send shivers up your spine as the wind, too, reminds you that it’s a force to be reckoned with. Your heart will begin to pound, but that’s nothing compared to the staccato beat it will thrum on the nail-biting course around Devil’s Corner. Holy Speed Bumps, Batman! Better fasten your utility belt, because it’s going to be a bumpy and thrilling ride.
Safely in the lagoon, you’ll alternate between cruising and catapulting around the mangroves and small islands of Spanish Water. Stop for a break at top-rated Santa Barbara Beach to swim and chillax on the sand. Then, once at “blood pressure normal” again, head for the snorkel site where you may meet facemask to face with scorpion fish, morays, coral, lobsters, and other squiggly gems of Curacao.
First, last, and in-between, you’ll gawk unabashedly at sights you’ll pass by like the “table mountain” of Tafelberg, guess-the-celebrity mansions, the world’s yarest yachts, and - cross your fingers for this one - the pelicans of serene Fuik Lagoon.
I’m so dizzy my head is spinnin’
Before Deep Woods Off and Bug Guard, the people of Curacao were going absolutely dotty. Polka dotty, that is. Wander the most traditional kitchens in Willemstad, and you’ll find that one quirky color scheme dominates: red-painted walls with large white polka dots. It’s not about fashion or tradition. It’s about mosquitoes. On this largely arid island, the occasional welcome rains bring with them the sting of these unwelcome pests. Clever islanders realized that white dots on red backgrounds sent drunk and dizzied mosquitoes out the door. And snap! Willemstad kitchens high-fived the polka dot.
