Negotiate at the Floating Market of Curacao
The Floating Market is a special market on Curacao. Although nowadays most stalls are set up on the dock, the Floating Market owes its name to the fact that almost all products come from Venezuela by boat. Fruit, vegetables and fish are the most sold products at the Floating Market.
The Floating Market is usually a very lively place with lots of things going on. People often buy products without leaving their car, so traffic is anything but smooth here. Another interesting thing to notice while you’re at the Floating Market is the many different language that are spoken. People communicate in English, Papiamento, Dutch and Spanish – often it’s a mixture of these languages. The Floating Market takes place in Willemstad, the capital of Curacao, so if you are near, it is definitely worth taking a look.
