Curaçao - Island Tour



 
 Na escala em Willemstad optámos por uma excursão que nos levou a conhecer grande parte da ilha. As fotos abaixo e o vídeo transmitem o que esta ilha tem de melhor...
 
 Descrição da excursão em Princess.com:
 Board your comfortable transportation for a narrated drive through the city en route to the unforgettable west coast countryside. Along the way you will see several plantation homes and labor houses. Your guide is quite knowledgeable about the area and will impart information and stories to you throughout the tour. The first stop is Boka Tabla, one of the island's national parks. The sea has carved a natural arch out of the volcanic coastline and the powerful surf causes the waves to crash forcefully on the wild rock formations. The sight and sound of this natural phenomenon will take your breath away. Continue to West Point for a photo stop from your transportation and enjoy the view over the Caribbean Sea at Playa Forti, a volcanic black sand beach with Westpoint village in the background.
 A scenic drive takes you to Tula Museum, housed in a restored plantation home with beautiful views of the surrounding hills, grounds, and the Caribbean Sea. A guided tour reveals an intimate view as to how people on the island lived during and after slavery and highlights the island's African heritage. There is a craft shop for you to browse and if you are lucky, the museum guides will favor you with a local song. Continue to what is considered the most beautiful tropical beach on the island. Knip Beach is a natural white sand beach, a stunning turquoise sea surrounded by dramatic volcanic hills. The water is so crystal clear that you can often see the beautiful fish swimming in it. This is the perfect spot to take vacation photographs. On your return drive back to the ship, you might be lucky enough to spot a pink flamingo strut its stuff along the salt lakes of Jan Kock. A photo stop of this area includes the home of Jan Kock built in 1840 and one of the oldest land houses in Curaçao. At the conclusion of your tour, a scenic drive brings you back through Willemstad to the port.
