Location information for Curacao

Curacao is best explored by rental car. EasyTerra Car Hire has over 5 pick-up locations in Curacao. This means there is always a pick-up location close to your destination.

Introduction

Curacao is the largest island of the Netherlands Antilles, which are part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The constant sun draws many holiday makers, both Americans and Europeans. The capital of the island is Willemstad, which is located on both sides of the Saint Anna Bay. The oldest neighborhood is called 'Punda' ('the point'), on the other side lies 'Otrabanda' (literally 'the other side').

Population

Curacao has more than 170,000 inhabitants. It is a very international crowd: the inhabitants originate from 50 different countries.

Location

The island is 61 kilometers long and between 5 and 14 kilometers wide, and is located in the southern part of the Caribbean. West of the island lies Aruba, to the east lies Bonaire. The distance to the South-American mainland (Venezuela) is about 70 kilometers.

Economy

Although the island's economy has not grown much in recent years, its inhabitants are better off than those of many South-American countries. The oil refinery is a major employer, and the port (one of the largest in the area) also plays an important economic role. In addition, there is an extensive services sector, with an emphasis on financial services. Tourism also makes an important contribution to the island's economy, although neighboring islands such as Aruba and Bonaire are more popular holiday destinations.

Airports

The international airport of Curacao is Aeropuerto Hato, which is located to the north-west of Willemstad. From this airport there are flights to the other islands of the Netherlands Antilles, as well as to South-America, the United States and Europe. The flight time to Amsterdam is 9 hours.

Public transport

Public transport on the island is provided by Autobus Bedrijf Curacao, which exploits big yellow or blue buses that are called the 'convoy', and that only stop at regular bus stops. In addition, there are minibuses that are simply called 'bus' (indicated on the license plate). They stop wherever you want. The city buses drive their route once per hour, buses to places like Willemstad are less frequent. On Sundays, there is a limited service.

Traffic and Parking

Driving on Curacao isn't very difficult, as long as you keep a few things in mind. The local population is in absolutely no hurry and drives fairly slowly (the maximum speed in inhabited areas is 45 km/h, and 60-80 km/h elsewhere). People often take a turn, make a u-turn or break suddenly, which means that it is smart to keep some distance. Also, on a T intersection, ongoing traffic has right of way.

In Willemstad it may be hard to find a place to park your car. At the large free Waaigat car park there is always space available, but this area is less safe at night. In the old Punda neighborhood and near the Wilhelminaplein there are two supervised car parks, which charge 0.50 Antillean guilders. You also have to pay to park near these car parks. Elsewhere, parking is free. Do mind your safety: lock your car well and don't leave anything of value. We recommend parking your car in a well-lit location.

Hotels

Curacao has plenty of accommodations, from luxury holiday resorts to small and cozy hotels. The island attracts visitors throughout the year, which is why we recommend booking your hotel room in advance, especially when you want to stay at a particular hotel.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place.
