Learn about two of Curaçao's fascinating industries.
Leave the ship and head to Riffort village for a photo stop. From the coach, you will have a perfect view over Curaçao’s city center and the harbor entrance. You can see the famous ‘Swinging Lady’ Queen Emma Bridge, as well as the renowned Dutch colonial-style merchant houses and Fort Amsterdam. The latter is the home of the Governor of Curaçao.
At the Ostrich Farm, hop aboard a safari truck and set out to explore this spectacular farm -- these massive birds are quite impressive and you will have the opportunity to hand-feed them. With any luck you may even see an egg hatching. In the souvenir shop, look for authentic African art and souvenirs.
Nearby, you'll find the Aloe Vera Farm, where you will learn all about the process of extracting aloe juice from the plant and discover the amazing healing powers of this natural product.
Drive back to the city of Curaçao to explore its beautiful downtown core, including the area that used to be the residential part of town back when Curaçao was a major trade center. The magnificent mansions that belonged to the merchants at the time have now been meticulously restored and are now part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site .
