Transportation in Curaçao


To get around busy Willemstad, opt to do short cross-town journeys on foot. Not only is it often the quickest way to navigate the traffic but it also enables hidden gems to be discovered en-route.


A range of sightseeing tourist buses and public transit buses serve Curaçao's urban and rural routes. Smaller minibuses and shared minivans (also called buses) don't adhere to a formal schedule but offer frequent departures – look out for “BUS” in the licence plate and flag one down. Major terminals are located in Punda and Otrobanda.


Curaçao's taxis are identifiable by a rooftop sign and the licence plate letters TX. Each taxi-driver caries an ID badge and a tariff confirming metered and fixed-rate prices. Costs relate to a standard four person carriage, including luggage. Taxis ply for trade at Hato International Airport, at the bus terminals in Punda and Otrobanda, and outside major hotels and attractions island-wide. Rates rise by 25% after 11pm.

Curacao has something of a relaxed approach to driving: at a sedate speed and patience in traffic. There's no rush, you'll get there eventually! In the capital, Willemstad, you'll find parking at downtown entertainment and shopping plazas, as well as many of the hotels, which charge around $10 per day.

Transportation tips

Pick up a ABC Busbedrijf Schedule to make the most of Curaçao's island-wide bus network. Many top tourist attractions, such as beaches, museums, natural parks and shopping zones, are served by a regular schedule - you'll find free copies in most major hotels.
