  1. Similar company here is "Let Lucy Handle it".
  2. I actually would not agree. I have seen many pictures of families on their tour. They have a new owner who is just as good as the previous owner IMO. Again, they will customize the tour based on what you want so what you read on the website is basically a guideline so to speak. I live here and honestly can say this was one of my favorite tours I have done here and am planning on doing another one with them.
  3. This is a good option for you too (from your other post).

    afternoon arrival

    If you are in town on the Punda side, you can catch a cab at the foot of the Queen Emma floating bridge, Mambo beach is close (calmer water).
  5. Are you renting a car? If not, our downtown area is 10 minutes walking at most from the port and has the Maritime museum, Kura Hulunda slavery museum, the oldest synagagoe in the Western hemisphere, plenty of restaurants and shops, street art.
  6. Porto Mari has a restaurant, bathrooms, etc. Grote Knip charges $1.00 I believe for the bathroom and additional for the shower. If you want a full service beach, Porto Mari would be it.
  7. Grote Knip and Klein (little) Knip yes you can use the receipt for chairs at both. Grote Knip is one of the prettiest beaches here IMO but not consistently good snorkeling. Klein Knip (oh also called Kenepa Chiki) usually has good snorkeling. Porto Mari has good snorkeling and the bonus of 2 pigs and several brand new piglets.
  8. I live here full time and what you may be talking about is the USA being allowed to use Curacao as a hub to store/transport humanitarian aid, which currently is the only thing that has been approved. The vendors at the Floating Market have been back for many months, but that could change. The current situation should not affect a 1 day visitor at all.

    afternoon arrival

    Playa Piskado will most likely be very busy in the afternoon, it actually is busy most of the time now sadly for the turtles. The sand would not be stirred up bc of it being afternoon unless we happened to have a storm here that day, which may make to the water "cloudy " so to speak.
  10. Answered on your other postbut check out the Pietermaai area. Pasa Bon online will have listings of what's going on here when you are here.

    The Pietermaai area has a few places. Check online Pasa Bon to see what is happening the night you are here.
  12. When you walk out of the port, follow the path, going towards the Carnaval Casino (it's inside the Renaissance hotel). Walk through the Renaissance and make a left, Starbucks will be on your right next to a movie theater (it's like a 5 minute or 10 minute walk).
  13. There is one right by the Renaissance hotel and also a Starbucks on the 2nd floor of the Renaissance.
