    a must visit island

    Favorite thing: We spent just 4 days in Curacao in 2009 finding the island nice enough for these days spent. We stayed at Howards Jhonson Hotel which is located in from the Boulevard (nice location) near good restaurant and more luxurious hotel in Punda side (the island is divided into two main regions Punda and Otrabanda)
    We paid $20 for transportation Airport-hotel and I may advice you not to because every twenty minutes or so, there are blue vans that drive you to Punda for $2 p/p yes!.
    The airport is about 15 minutes far from Punda and to go to Otrabanda, just take the movable bridge which connects both sides of the island, really nice to see it moving while big boats, cruises and oilship pass through it. But that´s not a problem. While the boat is out of service, you can take a cathamaran ship to take to the other side.
    Shopping is convenient and the people are friendly. The beaches (mambo beach) are ok and the water is clear and beautiful.
    Since I love shopping, it is not as cheap as we though it could be, nevertheless food is. dinner for two at a luxirious restaurant about $45 and there are some outlets to go for shopping in Saliña. to go there, you can take vans for $5. You can find Tommy, Guess, Max, United Color of Benneton and some others.
    I recommend Curacao to spent few days only and it is not necessary to rent a car unless you want to explore the island.
    The airplane ticket was about $400 and the hotel about $200 breadfast inclusive at a restaurant near the hotel. The rooms were just fantastic and the service was friendly and courteous.

    Fondest memory: The outlets are very nice and vary.

    Fondest memory: Yep! This is me singing with a band during the 1992 Carnival Parade. I've been dressed like that from 8 in the morning till after midnight, when we had a party with our Carnival group.

    Fondest memory: Could be your face, or your kids', on a pan lid!
    You could call Pacho Weeber on 8641147. Here are some samples of his work on oil barrel lids.
