The floating market was quaint and the fisherman and locals where friendly. We actually purchased a few souvenirs here as they had some unique wall metal art. The stores in town are crowded and have the same souvenirs. The market was the place to go.

Interesting to see. Fresh fruit is inexpensive, but tourists will find the other items less useful unless they have a kitchen. The large market building had more trinkets and stuff if you like that sort of thing.

We visited Willemstad and decided to take a walk by the floating market. It was colorful but not much to see. We included it with a walk around town.

On a walking tour of Willemstad we spent some time at this floating market. Most of the boats are from Venezuela and the people are very nice.. most speak English or get the hand gestures. Very fun place to check out.

Interesting if combined with Emma bridge and/or other attractions. Just a few boats with their stalls on the pavement seling fruit, vegetables and fish. If you don't have much time in Curacao this is not a must see attraction.
