The best walking tour in Willemstad, Curacao
Located across the water from the popular Punda district of Willemstad is the Otrobanda. Once this was a rough part of town and many of the historic buildings had long since collapsed in ruin. In recent decades though the community has made an effort to restore this important and historic part of town and the best way to see it is on a walking tour led by architect-by-day-tour-guide-by-night Anko van der Woude. The tours are a result of his obsession and meticulous research into the history of his beloved island and by the end of the walk you’ll find yourself just as captivated by the history and architecture of this neglected district as Anko is.
