Yes, in ABUNDANCE! You will have no worries finding what you need in that department! Only wish we drank from those two categories!

We went downtown today and it was absolutely gorgeous! Very clean and extremely huge compared to St Maarten. NOT putting down St Maarten downtown, because we love it there, but just something different. We really enjoyed it! Food was great and the locals are very nice!

Thanks for that! We're Club O people and except from the immediate Orient area, we stopped venturing out many years ago. Too much crap to deal with. I look forward to getting out and about in CUR.

Look forward to your reports. We're down there early next week so please don't delay! We're staying at The Natural. It looks nice but I think we will want to be out and about a bit more than in SXM.

We're here at the moment too, staying at Avila Beach Resort (lovely!). It took a couple of days to adjust, but we are loving our time here. We've visited several beaches so far including Cas Abou, Grote Knip, and the Mango strand. The beaches on the west end are gorgeous. We also spent part of the day downtown yesterday and had a great time. Very clean. We had a nice lunch at Governeur de Rouville restaurant. People are very friendly here. We had parked on the street and were attempting to use our chip credit card in the parking machine (the kind where you have to put in your parking space number and get a receipt). The machine wasn't reading our card and we didnít have the necessary change. A very kind woman noted our dilemma and put 2 of her own guilders in for us, explained how the system worked, and asked us if this was our first time here. When we told her it was, she thanked us for coming to CuraÁao and told us to have a wonderful time. We feel very safe here. While we miss SXM, we are finding that it is a really nice second option for us. We will write a more thorough trip report upon our return.

Hello Robin & Ed, yes we have had a good time here also. We were also downtown yesterday as well. We had a great lunch at Steak and Ribs overlooking the cruise ship. Food was great! And yes the people here are very nice and friendly, we have not felt unsafe one minute. We leave out in the morning, so we are just taking it easy around the villa today. Enjoy! One other thing I forgot to mention about parking downtown. We saw those parking meters also but didnít use them as I had already thought a chipped card would probably not work. We park in the above ground parking lot at the Renaissance on the water by the fort, in front of the cruise dock. Itís FREE, try it out! You can walk to everything from there!

Gary and Catherine, we hope you had a safe trip home! Vacations always go too fast. We are here until Tuesday, so trying to make the most of it. We look forward to your trip report and will write one of our own upon our return.

It certainly hasnít disappointed us in any way so far. It is a lovely island with gorgeous beaches. We werenít sure what to expect as we didnít care for Aruba all that much when we visited there for the first time last year. CuraÁao has been a completely different trip in all ways good.

Even though the ABC islands are all Dutch and so close, Curacao stands out best. (JMO)
