Curacao, ever been?
Leaving Monday for a quick 3 day business trip.
Any sights I have see or some I should avoid?
Thanks, I'll have Monday night and Tuesday morning to poke around.

Spent 4 nights there this winter before heading to Bonaire...the island itself is nice...plenty of good beaches and outdoor rec. If you area diver you should try and get a dive or tow in...we used Ocean Encounters dive shop...great place with 4 locations around island. I would avoid the hotel food if possible...seemed very generic and not authentic. We had a great time heading into the main city Willemstead and poking around and asking the cab drivers to recommend spots...there are a ton of restuarants right on the water that are great.

Thanks, staying at Hotel Klooster and working at curacao marina all day Wed. Are cabs plentiful or should I get a car?

We spent our honeymoon there a couple years ago. It was very nice. We had no problems getting cab rides. Williamsted did have some great restaurants right on the water and I believe they were reasonably priced. I played one round of golf. It took about an hour and half since we were the only ones on the course. It was cheap and the views from the course were great.

cab are plentiful..just make sure you ask how much before you leave...the price changes by the mintue. If you have time one day you can head out the Westpunt the very far end of the island...nice resort out there a beach, outside the city...it is a long drive though.
