Very interesting old architecture, coloured houses, loads of good shops & tree lined squares to stop in, interesting harbour with a swing bridge that is opened for bigger traffic then a ferry takes over seamlessly.There is a trolley train tour round the interesting parts. Nice place almost ''European'' atmosphere.
One place we enjoyed visiting was the place where they make Blue Curacao Liqueur. A stop there is includied in many ship sponsered city tours and does make for a "refreshing" stop with free samples available of many types of drinks. The samples are small, so no danger of having "too much fun."
Just a beautiful spot. Make sure your on deck for arrival and/or departure with your camera! We've been twice-did a snorkeling trip once(which was great!) but actually I enjoy just wandering around town. It's so picturesque. And as a point of interest, I believe it is home to the oldest synagogue in the Caribbean.

Just walking around town is a nice thing to do there...They have the floating bridge so you can get across and wonder around. I found the locals there to be very friendly and not at all pushy...They also have a little area by the pier where you can purchase things, again those working are not pushing you into buying anything.
When we were there they had to open the bridge thing....I thought 'ere we go Caribbean chaos....but no! as the bridge became inactive the ferry just appeared & took over, lucky us we went back to the ship on the ferry. I agree a very nice place to wander about.
as the others have said it is a very nice place to just wander around, but if you want something else to do they have a submersible at the aquarium which is a great way to see all kinds of marine life, it is small so if you are claustrophobic you might want to reconsider, the aquarium itself is a good one and the beach next to the aquarium is also quite nice
