The day we arrive, we'll need to get a rental car and then also do some grocery shopping on the way to Westpunt area, where we'll be staying for 4 nights and then we'll be spending the next 5 nights at the Hilton. We always like to split our trips between rentals and hotels so we can see see both sides of the island easily.
My question is the day we arrive...how much time should we expect to spend on the car rental aspect and where to go grocery shopping? I understand the car rental time will vary a little depending on who we choose-- but from what I've read and correct me if I'm wrong..most of the local car rental places can't rent you a car at the airport or drop it off their anymore and you have to go to their respective offices?
On the grocery store--what the best option on our way to Westpunt for a grocery store visit? We'd be looking for basic staples some fruit, juices, breakfast items, light snacks for the kids and beer.
Also, it seems around 45 mins to a hour to get from Airport to Wespunt area--is this accurate as well? We were in Curacao before, but it was some time ago and I cant remember how long the ride out West was...
Thanks in advance!
