Floating Market

On the channel that connects St. Anna Bay and Waaigat, Willemstad's lagoon, the floating market has been one of the city's most famous attractions for decades. Every morning fishermen and merchants make their way from Venezuela, just 15 miles away, and sell their catch and fresh produce. The recent turmoil in Venezuela has dampened the atmosphere, with fewer boats arriving each day, though the setting alongside Punda, the oldest part of Willemstad, is as picturesque as always. While locals hope for the political and economic situation in their neighbor to the south to improve—and also for the return of an enviable selection of mangos and melons—visitors can still count on some photo opportunities.
