Tenders are always a problem here - too many people want to get off and it just takes time. Infinity was also traveling with us and arrived first, so we were anchored quite a ways out. About a 30 min tender ride.
Loved Curacao! Beautiful island, buildings and nice people. No vendors hassling you at the beach and all beaches are protected coves with breakwaters. We did a boat tour to the beach. The beach was Sea Aquarium beach and included lounge chairs and a drink. Great beach for sunning, wading and okay snorkeling.
Would love to go back to Curacao for a land vacation.
