The neighborhood of Punda, in Downtown Willemstad, onsists of many shops and restaurants. Some time after landing in Curacao, and settling in a bit, me and my boyfriend headed out to explore this area nearby our hotel, Pietermaai Boutique Hotel.
We had dinner at Iguana Café as we watched the sun set down past the Queen Emma Bridge (a floating bridge that opens up to make way for incoming boats!- What an experience, read about that later–) and the town across us called Otrobanda. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a shot of the food. After a very long trip of connecting flights, the chow down is very real. I enjoyed a meal of smothered porkchops and rice. Manny had churrasco. The food that we had throughout Curacao was decent but it did all add up to be very pricey– a whopping $20-30 per meal. Now add that to your breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. We clearly just didn’t have the inside scoop on the spots with the deals.
