Highlights

  • Bottled water and all entrance fees included 
  • Hotel or port pickup and drop-off makes for a seamless experience

What to Expect
Begin your whirlwind tour of Curacao with hotel or port pickup; round-trip transportation means that you can simply relax and enjoy the scenery, leaving the driving to your guide. The first stop on your half-day tour is Flamingo Park, where you see the namesake brightly colored birds and learn about their biology and behavior. A tropical island staple, the long-legged birds make for perfect souvenir photos. Back in the tour vehicle, head for Hato Caves, where you embark on a guided tour. Walk the Indian Trail inside the cave, viewing 1,500-year-old carvings left by Caquetio Indians and learning about the formation of the caves. Text travel to a nearby beach for some swimming, relaxing, and sightseeing. Your tour ends with convenient drop-off back at your hotel or at the port.

There were 10 of us in the van. The tour guide barely spoke, except to talk to someone on his phone. Occasionally he would tell the person in the front seat something, or if we asked a question, he gave a vague answer. It was like being driven from point A to point B but no
