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.
