A Dutch-Caribbean whirlwind in Willemstad

From pastel-colored townhouses to colonial forts, Willemstad is brimming with Caribbean charm. The Dutch landed here in the 1600s and quickly established a bustling trading port. Today, their legacy lives on in the form of red-tile roofs, handsome architecture and the imposing Fort Amsterdam. As you explore the city, you'll stumble across shimmering waterways, floating bridges and sun-dappled street cafes. Set in the heart of the Old Town, Willemstad vacation rentals promise a unique stay in one of the Caribbean's most captivating cities. If you prefer a quieter scene, snap up a hillside property overlooking the harbor.

Things to do

Meet Willemstad's "Swinging Old Lady"

Nicknamed "Our Swinging Old Lady" by locals, Queen Emma Bridge is Willemstad's signature landmark. It spans Sint Anna Bay to connect the neighborhoods of Punda and Otrobanda. For a glimpse at Curaçao's colorful history, don't miss Museum Kura Hulanda. It's housed in a characterful 19th-century merchant's apartment and loaded with New World history, covering everything from the slave trade to contemporary Caribbean art. If you love the latter, head to Gallery Alma Blou, a 17th-century plantation house that's been converted into a cooperative art space.

Otrobanda is known for its winding streets and restored Dutch mansions, while Pietermaai is a hotspot for Afro-Caribbean restaurants and upscale bars. Prefer to mix your own Curaçao cocktails?
