Luncheon cafe clifftop and local cafe by the beach and Asian fast food within walking distance. Lagun is a remote area on the west side of the island about 40 min from Willemstad and 30 min from Hato Airport. Close to Christoffelberg National Park and oceanfront volcanic boca's.
Lagun and local food
This is a dive, snorkel, swim and lay on the beach persons dream. The lagoon is just down below with chairs on the beach to rent and huts in the sand for the ones that want shade. The owner of the Inn that sits next to the resort has a fantastic BBQ with entertainment on Thursday nights over looking the lagoon - don't miss it.
For a casual bit there is also the Asian walk-up (I forget the name) within a block of the resort that serves big steaming plates of noodles (or most Chinese specials) to go. One meal is good for two people to take back to the condo. There are other restaurants within a short drive but the best ones are in Wilmsted and beyond. Peter and Tia, who manage the Inn will act as your host while you are my guest. They provide a welcome guide in the unit and are available to give you the scoop on some of the local favorites to try in town. Ask for the islands weekly 'Que Pasa' guide for all the club, restaurant and activities.
Sights to See and Night Life
Again check with Peter and Tia but some of my favorites are (excuse the misspelling) Kristoff National Park, Hato Caves, Sea Aquarium, Thiel Beach, Spanish Water, Klein Curacao, Ostrich Farm and Aloe Vera Farm, Kulanda Museum, Rif Fort and the list goes on. There are many tour companies you can hook up with to see the sights with others.
Paradise comes with misquitoes at dusk. No wind and no sun take some 'off' when you go for a walk. (We will try to leave a can in the unit...please replenish.)
Need a bigger unit? We have a one bedroom two bath unit available, as well. - please contact us for details.
