Walking Tour Punda & Otrobanda
The Avila Beach Hotel presents the possibility to do a guided Walking Tour through the downtown area that’s actually off the beaten path. The hotel that is known as the oldest hotel on Curacao, would therefore fondly share the rich history of the island and the hotel. It’s possible to choose between the Otrobanda Street Art and the Alley District or Punda Window Art with Fort Amsterdam & Handelskade. Tour Guide Corine Seket was born to guide and the info she shares goes far beyond Google!

Hair Salon / Divi-Diva Hairdresser
Divi-Diva based at Avila's Octagon Plaza is a European hairdresser where attention is key. A hair salon where you can sit back and surrender to the professionalism of the barber. Working with the brands Redken and Fudge.
The Octagon Museum was where the Venezuelan "Libertador" Simon Bolívar, spent some time before ending Spanish colonial rule in South America. The Octagon has stood the test of time well. Meanwhile, the Octagon has been lovingly restored by the Curaçao Monuments and the Avila Beach Hotel, on whose site the building is located. Today the Octagon is a small museum that keeps the memory of the bond between Curacao and Simon Bolívar alive. There is also a temporary exhibition on the history of the Avila Beach Hotel for Avila's 70th anniversary. The Octagon Museum is the starting point of a Walking Tour to Punda and Otrobanda given by Corine Seket.
