For most people, the holiday is a moment to fully unwind and relax. This may make it seem attractive to book a remote hotel. However, this is not a good idea: a secluded hotel makes it more difficult for you to fully experience the island and its inhabitants – something you definitely will not regret. A centrally located hotel offers just as much peace and quiet beside the opportunity to experience the local culture. It is better to make trips to remote areas from a lively environment such as Willemstad than vice versa. Curacao is not very big, but a drive to the sparsely populated West Point to the lively Willemstad takes about 45 minutes. That’s a long drive for a snack and a refreshing drink.
