What to do
Restaurants & bars
The Netto bar is the most famous local bar, and this is just around the corner. They are famous for their home made green rum that is good in coctails too.
Do you want to eat out? You will have plenty of choice in the neighborhood to find a nice restaurant. The Riffort, a 5 minute walk, has great restaurants like Porto, for ribs, steak, seafood and sushi, Gondola, for Italian food and Steak & Ribs. Bistro Chanterelle with great French style dishes and the best view at the entrance of the harbour. Ceviche Gastrobar serves ceviche and more with the the same view but 3 meters higher.
At the Brionplein, a 10 minute walk, you will find Noir. If you walk the direction of the high bridge you will find the Gouverneur, with great Caribbean dishes, including the famous Banana soup, Bario Hotel for sophisticated street food, and around the corner in the Hoogstraat at Mayra’s Kitchen you can enjoy a healthy Mediterranean dish.
Arts & Culture
A walk around in the neighborhood will show you plenty of murals and art works done by local artists. A lot of the art works are made during various Kaya Kaya editions, yearly organized street festivals with the goal to develop the neigborhood to become safe, attractive and diverse to live, visit and gather, for everyone.
Otrobanda is the residence of many artists and musicians.
The Kura Hulanda Museum is a place where the history of Curacao as a center of the Slave trade is presented in an engaging way.

Outdoor & Adventure
Curacao is great for snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking, sailing, surfing, mountain biking and bird spotting. The Christoffel Park offers different activities.
In the Otrobanda area you can visit the Mangrove park. Mangrove areas are diverse and important ecosystems. Diverse underwater life, consisting of algae, sponges and other animals and plants, can be found on mangrove roots. A variety of marine fauna, including fish, crabs and lobsters, can be found in between and on these roots. You can explore the park walking with or without a guide or kayaking.
To explore Otrobanda and Punda you don’t need a car. But to enjoy the beautiful beaches or the rough north coast, you will need a car. We can help you find the right rental car deal.
In the alleys of Otrobanda parking spaces are scarce. You can park your rental for free next to the police station at a 2 minute walk.
We love Otrobanda
We are Ace, Open Source specialist and Programmer, and Rianne, Art Teacher and Web Designer and we have been living and working in Otrobanda since 1998.
Ace was born in Curacao and adopted and raised in the Netherlands.
Rianne fell in love with Curacao about 30 years ago during an internship and came back to work as an Art Teacher. In 1998 she bought this monument, or ‘project’.
After years of living and in this beautiful house together with our son Alex, with holes in the floors and leaks in the ceilings, and trying to fix it up, we managed to start with the complete restoration with the help of the local Monument Fund. Now the restored building houses a home for us, the office of Kuki+Ko, our web design business and Studio Kuki, where we welcome travellers, family and friends.
We know and love Otrobanda and Curacao and will make sure you will enjoy our beautiful island.
