One of the trendiest neighborhoods of Curacao is called Pietermaai. This colorful and vibrant area has a very rich (and visible) history. In recent years, the district has been renovated considerably and it sure is paying off. You will stumble across almost anything in this cultural area: restaurants, cafes, small shops and all kinds of people. Night life in Pietermaai is alive and kicking with plenty of bars and cafes. The Avila Beach Hotel is located in the Pietermaai District, so it is easy to wander around the whole district.
