Cruise Ships
Several major U.S. and European cruise lines stop at Curaçao. The island has two docking spots for cruise ships – the mega ships can dock at the Mega Pier and the smaller ships can dock at the cruise terminals within the harbor. All cruise terminals are connected to the city's main shopping and business areas. Curaçao seaports are all natural, sheltered ports that offer safe, fast, efficient and reliable handling of both ships and cargo. Two cruise terminals are located in the Otrabanda section of Willemstad so duty free shopping areas can be easily reached by foot. The Mega cruise ships can dock at the Mega Pier and the smaller ships can dock at the Mathey Wharf, which is the cruise terminal located in the harbor.

We invite you to put Curaçao on your cruising map for your next vacation.

Yachts
Do you own a yacht or boat? Enjoy cruising throughout the Caribbean? Then Curaçao is the perfect destination. Our docking facilities are renowned among southeastern Caribbean islands. There’s a huge selection of Curaçao marinas, haul-out yards, and anchorages. There also are many friendly people – speaking in English, Spanish, or Dutch -- to help with your boating concerns. The best part is this is an expanding, competitive market, so prices are reasonable and attractive.

Curaçao also boasts excellent weather. Since we’re below the hurricane belt, our waters are safe during the summer, and we have constant trade winds during the winter. Curaçao is a stunning collection of landscaped gardens, clear coastal waters, and gleaming beaches. Discover the Caribbean’s best-kept secret. See our list of Curaçao's yacht and boat facilities, and marinas.

Customs and Immigration

Visitors should generally not have a problem bringing items for personal use and gifts onto Curaçao. Prescription drugs, particularly if they contain narcotics, should be clearly marked. Unlike in the Netherlands, possession of even the smallest amount of marijuana or other illegal drugs is a serious offense.

If you are traveling with expensive jewelry, you may want to bring a present proof of prior possession such as a receipt of purchase, bill of sale, insurance policy, or jeweler’s appraisal. You may take foreign-made items bearing serial numbers (e.g. cameras, watches, tape recorders, gift and folders for a convention) to Custom Offices for registration before leaving the U.S.A.

Besides articles for personal use, non-residents over 18 years are allowed one liter of liquor, 200 cigarettes, 25 cigars, and 125 grams of tobacco. If you exceed the stated quantity you will have to declare. Additionally, if you wish to carry over $10,000 with you, you will have to declare it.
