- Hato Caves
- Landhaus Chobolobo distillery: sampling of Blue Curaçao liqueur
- Queen Juliana bridge
- We leave the port behind us to discover three of the main sights of the Curaçao countryside and city of Willemstad: the Curaçao Museum, opened in 1948 and displaying a collection of contemporary paintings from local and international artists as well as a reconstruction of life on the island during the 19th century; the spectacular Hato Caves filled with fossils, stalactites, stalagmites and crystal-clear water pools generated by geological phenomena that took place hundreds of years ago as well as with 1500-year-old petroglyphs, underground waterfalls and natural pools and, last but not least, Landhaus Chobolobo, a famous distillery where we will sample Blue Curaçao rum.
- We then cross Queen Juliana bridge overlooking both banks of the natural port of St. Ana Bay and offering spectacular views of the capital. It is a four lane road bridge across St. Anna Bay named after Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. It weighs 3,400 tons and reaches a height of approximately 56 metres at its apex.
- We can then choose whether to stay behind in the city or continue and head back to the ship.
