Honeymoon in Paradise - Part 2
Hopefully from part 1 you will realise that the Casita is, in our opinion, perfect for location, views, surroundings, cleanliness and amenities. - Plus free WiFi
Over our two week stay on Curacao we managed to explore most of the island, one thing we did note was that some of the roads on some of the maps are private roads, on the maps we were using these were light grey. We can highly recommend hiring a truck (nissan nivara etc) to get around in, they are common place on the island and there is a reason why!
We spent alot of time in the north of the island, as it is has the national park - mountains and boka's and a number of very beautiful beaches. We spent a couple of days enjoying the sites of Willemstad with the moving bridge.
Restaurants - over the two weeks we ate out a number of times, the first time we went to L'aldea - grill & steakhouse, the food was excellent and plentiful although the selection was not as extensive as we have seen elsewhere, the staff were excellent, the downside was the price, for what we had we felt it was a little expensive which we did comment on in the comments leaflet. The second night out we stayed closer to home and went to Karakter, just behind the Habitat hotel - Wow... the view (not suprising considering how close to the Casita it is), the Service excellent - the food excellent and the price - reasonable (oh and the Jazz nights are very good (Mercedes' husband plays in the band!)) we ate here a number of times and the staff are willing to do a take away if you do not fancy eating in the restaurant. We also ate at Sol food which is in Westpunt, it is in the back yard of Sunshines' house, the garage has been turned into a smart looking kitchen - and they do a mean steak! no need to get dressed up but it is a must just for the experience!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time on Curacao - the best beach in our opinion was Grote Knip (North West of the Island) and free also has Klien Knip next to it... very good snorkelling area - although Westpunt is claimed to have turtles when the fishermen come in....
We would love to come back to Curacao in a few years to see how it has developed and when we do we shall certainly be looking to stay with Mercedes again - a fantastic host - thank you so very much for giving us the most amazing Honeymoon it was truly unforgettable!
