We had a great time on this private tour. We saw birds that we missed a week earlier. We swam with big sea turtles. The lunch at Yaachi's restaurant was good. The guide did an excellent job.

Curacao is the New Orleans of the Caribbean. We started the day on a driving tour/beach stop. The tour simply drove us around the city; nothing of note except that the city is surprisingly developed and western. We then stopped at Mambo beach. The beach area is very modern and clean with shopping, restaurants, and bars. We didn't want to swim, so we had lunch and some drinks. It was a very enjoyable experience and we hope to return to spend more time there. When we returned to the port area, we hit the town and enjoyed the local food and drink. There's a secluded area that we discovered on a previous visit that is down an alley, surrounded by tall buildings, and has 2 restaurants, a souvenir shop, and several outdoor tables. We stopped there for a quiet snack and some drinks. Sorry, but I can't find it on maps, so can't say how to find it. We ended our day at the Infinity pool bar of the port-side Renaissance Hotel. The drinks are reasonable, the food good, and views outstanding. I highly recommend it to anyone cruising through there. Read Less

We took a $20 island tour with a 2 hour beach stop. Since we have not been to Curacao we wanted to understand the island. The tour was good but if I had to go again I would just take a taxi to a beach.
