Happened to my sister while we were in St. Lucia. Some lady on line behind her was pissed she was there and threw the money at cashier and walked out.
Local crazy was screaming in front of the church about the white devils. This was in Soufriere.

I am so very sorry to hear that.

I guess things sure have changed since we were last there. The people couldn't have been any nicer although I will admit, I hated Bridgetown and couldn't wait to get out of there. But as we know, the cruise ships don't always come into the nicest parts of the island's, and they do try to capture you in their shopping meccas. We wanted to do an activity that was based there so we drove in one day to book the trip and see the city and then back the second time to actually do it and that was more than enough of Bridgetown for me.

Respectfully,

There are Caribbean people on all islands who feel the changes brought on by tourism is a negative way. I do not think it is island specific.

Honeymooned 20 years ago in Barbados, would not go again. Go annually to Aruba & Curacao and love both. Frequently also to Mexico as well. Fav is Curacao, lots to see & do, not so Americanized. Give it a try!

What do you like the best about Curacao?
Any recommendations for places to stay?
Any area we should avoid?
Any information would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Well #1 it is out of the hurricane belt! Residents are very friendly, food is good but not like SXM. Beaches are a little rocky as you go into the water but sandy bottom. Water clarity is unbelievable and with abundant sea life of every kind. Scuba and snorkeling are fantastic. Hotels in the town and outskirts. Car rental is recommended as everything is spread out. Very cosmopolitan, lots of Europeans, mostly Dutch. Not as Americanized as Aruba. Discovered Curacao 9 years ago and usually visit twice a year. One of our favorites!
