Pietermaai Party/Art Scene in Willemstad, Curacao
The most colorful collection of buildings anywhere in the Caribbean. An iconic floating bridge some 130+ years old. The two most outwardly visible charms of Curacao’s capital city make Willemstad a must see all on their own. Beyond the obvious here, though, Willemstad harbors quite a few surprises. Chief among them: Pietermaai District. Located in the heart of Willemstad, the once rundown neighborhood is now an ultra-hip urban oasis of all things art, fashion, and fun. Think of it as the Caribbean’s answer to Wynwood, Miami. A steady stream of festivals, restaurants, and bars fuel the nonstop party scene here. Trendy shops, and boutique hotels housed in resorted historic buildings further elevate the cozy-cool vibe.
