De ABC autobus bedrijf Curaçao

Types of public transportation on Curaçao

There is a small but affordable public transportation system on the island. Curaçao’s public transportation system is operated by ABC bus company. Small vans with the “bus” sign also travel through the city. The larger buses run longer routes and fixed routes. There are several major bus stations on the island. In theory, the big buses keep to a schedule, but in practice you can’t always count on arriving on time. You may just have to wait up to an hour. Problems with the punctuality of large buses, especially in the evening, are more common.

    The ABC bus company Curacao – Convoy buses

    The ABC bus network on the island is not as developed as in other countries, but there are still ways to get around. The company has a fleet of modern buses with air conditioning and comfort. They also offer express service that makes fewer stops than the regular service. The ABC bus company offers scheduled services between the main districts on the island. The target audiences are both locals and tourists.

    Sha Capriles Quay is one of the most important stations on the island and is served by ABC. The roads usually have a wide shoulder for pedestrians and there are several roadside bus stops with benches.

    Stops and prices convoy buses

    There is nowhere else to get on or off the bus except at a designated stop. The main bus stations are the Punda bus station near the post office and the Otrobanda Viaduct. Would you like to take the bus regularly? Then buy a copy of the bus company’s “Buki Di Bus,” where you can view most routes and schedules with current information at your leisure.

    The large convoy buses usually run once an hour from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., and tickets can be purchased on the bus for 2 guilders per ride (cash only). There are also longer drives toward West Point. A day pass costs 8.50 guilders and this allows unlimited travel on all routes. Since the bus’s policy is to stop at multiple locations, please note that your arrival time on each ride may vary greatly. This depends on both traffic and the total volume of the bus.

    Minivans on Curacao

    An important way of getting around for locals are the smaller vans. The minibuses are privately owned and operated. They are often white or adorned with advertising and drive to a number of destinations. They are not as comfortable as the ABC buses, but they are cheaper. They follow a fixed route, but make stops along the way if passengers request them. The front and back of the bus show where it all passes. If there is a sign that says ROND, it means that it calls at the Rondweg (or Schottegatweg).

    Minibusjes op Curaçao

    Stops and prices minibuses

    If you are on the side of the road, you can raise your hand as soon as a minibus arrives. Because of the small capacity, however, the minibus may already be full. You will then have to wait for the next one. The vans pick you up and drop you off wherever you want on their route. Prefer not to wait at a bus stop unless absolutely necessary. Drivers are not officially authorized to stop there and often drive on. Tickets range from 2 to 4 guilders.

    Cabs on Curaçao

    Curaçao cabs are plentiful and can be found at major hotels, resorts, on Sha Caprileskade in Punda and at Hato Airport. Cabs in Curaçao have license plates with the text TX, making them easier to recognize. You can reach a cab on their business number or use the cab app Taxi 24/7 Curaçao. All licensed cabs should have a meter, but it is always best to agree on a price before getting in the car. Especially when you will be traveling a longer distance. Rides from Curaçao Airport to downtown Willemstad or nearby hotels often cost between 45 and 85 guilders.

    There are two main types of cabs on Curaçao: cab sedans and cab vans. Sedan cabs are used for trips with up to 3 people, while cab vans are larger vehicles, accommodating up to 9 passengers. They are often used for transportation to the airport or for groups traveling together. You drive a cab on Curaçao all the time in a car with air conditioning.

    Most Curaçao cabs are friendly and many even have booster seats available upon request. If you are traveling with children, it is always best to call ahead and reserve a cab to ensure there is enough room for everyone in your group. Whether you are looking for transportation to or from the airport, need a ride into town or don’t want to drive back after a night out, traveling by cab is a great option.

    Cab with private driver

    Hiring a cab with a private driver for a few hours is also a great way to see the Caribbean island’s best attractions. In Curaçao, you can take a standard cab or a bus cab.

    I have not experienced the rooms yet, but as an event, experiencing their service, attention and hospitality, they are doing a great job. The garden forms an amazing ambience for network meetings and private events. Definately recommended. Compliments to some of the waiters that are quite proactive and go the extra mile. Kudos to the team!

    Beautiful, nice and service-oriented boutique hotel in the heart of Willemstad.To be clear: If you book via Corendon: certainly not a 5* hotel (a good 4 is better). Missing some critical things. But they make up for it with great service!A quick summary of plus and minus pointsPlus:-Location. The heart of Willemstad. In the middle of restored Otrabanda. 15 minutes walk from Nieuwstraat. Nevertheless, very quiet.-Service: employees are super friendly and helpful.-Rooms. Rooms are clean and beds great. Nice shower. Are cleaned every day. And I mean really cleaned.-Nice poolside bar where there is a lot of chatting in the evening.-Adult only. Really nice.Minus:-No beach access. This is not something that you can blame the hotel for, but it is stated differently on the Corendon site. If you want to go to a beach, you will have to arrange that yourself. Otherwise they would have gotten 5 stars for location.-Swimming pool is quite small for 46 rooms. There are approximately 13 beds, so on busy check-out days: do the math.-Breakfast. They have outsourced breakfast to a restaurant nearby (Bario). Not a buffet but a la carte. During our stay we suffered from long waiting times. Kura management then took steps and things improved.-No gym.Extras:-If you stay here, it is wise to arrange a car for at least a few days.-Be informed by the hotel management about where to eat/be etc etc.

    Hotel with a beautiful garden, in the middle of a historic village. The service from the staff has always been friendly and multilingual. The room we stayed in was new and the bed was excellent!However, some problems were observed. They didn't replace the amenities for our last night, nor did they even collect a towel that was on the floor.The shower is also not separated from the rest of the bathroom, there is no curtain or shower stall which makes the bathroom wet. There was also a lack of support for soap and shampoo, which are on the floor.The parking lot is far away and you need to either walk with your bags or take your car close to the entrance and then return to the parking lot.But the worst thing for me was the breakfast. it is served in another hotel and there is no variety, it doesn't change between days, it is very simple and contained. You can just have a coffee and a juice and not repeat it. On the first day we were treated very poorly, even harshly, which made us not want to go back the next day.

    Great place to stay. Renovated only recently and rooms are excellent. Staff is very helpful and polite. Pool is a bit small but perfect to relax at the end of day. Or whenever you start your day later.Breakfast is in collaboration with a place 1min away and is taken good care off. Choices and taste are overall just good.They did tell Kura B is planning to build their own kitchen in the near future. But the 1min (literally) walk shouldn't trouble you.

    We are locals and wanted a relaxing escape from our usual routine. This place was extremely relaxing, with a beautiful pool surrounded by large trees to provide a great mix of shade and sun. The hotel is very well located with many great restaurants within a few minutes walk. The rooms are very well designed for an authentic Curacao experience. We would highly recommend a stay to both couples as to individuals visiting Curacao.

    I think this is best hotel in Curaçao!It is sweet and charming, the rooms are very clean and well kept. It is comprised of several buildings within the property. Vivid colours both inside and outside of the rooms. Lots of lush foliage and very serene, literally perfect for retreating from busyness and embracing relaxation.It’s tucked in Kura Hulanda village so there’s plenty to do and eat without walking more than 10 minutes but I recommend exploring nearby neighbourhoods like Otrabanda (where the hotel is), Punda and Pietermaai which are all walking distanceWhat’s most memorable is the keen hospitality of the KB team. I felt welcomed throughout the duration of my stay, not just upon arrival. They happily answered every question I had and was consistently kind and helpful.Janette, Teresa, Disney, Darrel, Rosalita, and the young lady w the cute headscarf that complimented my crocs - you guys are amazing!My only regret is leaving such a good review bc now I risk KB not being available when I return!

    Tuk Tuk

    Tuk Tuks are an alternative transportation available on the island. At 57 kilometers per hour, you sit comfortably outside and seem to float over the road. The Tuk Tuk was developed in Asia. There, these powered, three-wheeled carts are the most common means of transportation. With Tuk Tuk’s in Curaçao, you can also take very nice tours of the city!
