Walking across the bridge is a ritual. And it’s so much fun to take a first timer, especially when the bridge starts to open and you get stuck and your friend has no clue what is going on

Nice view of the buildings. We have the chance to see the bridge opening, amazing. Sunday parking is for free and there is plenty of space.

This bridge is one of a kind! When you're in Curacao you definitely have to visit to walk on it and take a lot of photos. And you have to see it moving! It's such a beautiful thing to see!

We had a fabulous frozen drink, 1/2 price happy hour!, at The Iguana Cafe and watched the bridge swing open for a coast guard boat to come through. It is also lit at night, very pretty.
