All the children of Curacao must visit the Maritime Museum and the harbor of Curacao. So all the locals of Curacao have been on a Ferry tour in our harbor. That’s why we think it’s also a must see for the tourist to visit our harbor, so you can discover Curacao as a local. As a child we loved to see how many ships came into our port every day. It is almost unbelievable that such a small island as Curaçao attracts so much traffic! Curaçao has the oldest and busiest harbor in the Caribbean.
