Summary: The best reasons to visit Curacao.
Have you been in a vacation where you just sit inside your hotel room wondering what else you can do and where else you can possibly go to?
Curacao Landmarks leave you plenty of choices. From a great park with abundant plant and animal species, to beaches that tolerate topless sunbathing, to hand-feeding sharks!
A nice place for historical buffs would be the Hato Caves. Presently still forming with water dripping from the walls, the caves have very impressive stalactites and stalagmites that are mostly taking on shapes. These caves date back to the Amerindian Arawaks days where these are used as their shelter. Petroglyphs, the term used for cave drawings, are over 1,500 years old.
The Sea Aquarium and the Christoffel Park are only two of Curacao Landmarks that encourage a visit from animal and plant enthusiasts. Beach bums can enjoy to their hearts' content and find solace in Curacao as well. The beaches as Curacao Landmarks are Curacao's best kept-secret. From outdoor water activities to a quiet scenery-watching, the beaches are the core reasons of a tourists' visit.
Architectural fanatics have their own paradise among Curacao Landmarks. Interesting sights would be the Fort Amsterdam and the Landhuis Ascencion. The latter is now a recreation center where one can hear local music, watch shows and buy some souvenir items.
The Tafelberg and Landhuis Brakkeput is a must-see as well. Hopeless romantics would go gaga over this particular Curacao Landmark. From a historical eighteenth-century plantation structure, it has transformed into an open-air restaurant. It promises a memorable romantic evening with its superb menu, great Caribbean music & tropical ambiance. This famous restaurant caters to a quiet dinner for two, to a posh party of up to a thousand persons. Brakkeput, as it is commonly known, is a child-friendly establishment. Children can do coloring activities under supervision.
Willemstad, the capital city, is one of Curacao Landmarks. The famous Carnivals in Curacao which run from early January to the end of February or March are done along the streets of Willemstad. Tourists from around the world look forward to these festivities. An opportunity to party and street-dance with the locals is a great come-on for visitors.
And what's with Curacao Landmarks and shopping freaks? Aside from the impressive Dutch-inspired structures, Willemstad is also famous for its five-block shopping district, Punda. In reality, shopping is not duty-free. However, since haggling is a must to get away with the best prices, some people believe that shopping here is tax-free.
Curacao Landmarks basically cater to a vast range of interests. Tourists who have had the Curacao experience would agree that it's the place to be.
