Project plan for the second mega pier

Cruise shipsWILLEMSTAD – This afternoon, the Minister of Economic Development, Stanley Palm will launch the project for a second mega pier in Curacao. This mega pier will be located right next to the first mega pier in Otrabanda.

There are talks with several cruise lines on the financing of the project. Cruise line Royal Caribbean International indicated their interest in funding this project under the condition that they get the rights to develop the Caracasbaai area where they want to build a third and a fourth mega pier.

The master plan for the second pier should be discussed in political circles. This is according to the chairman of the project team, Vernon Huerta. “The second mega pier will increase the flow of tourists and that means changes for customs and taxis, but also opportunities for catering establishments and entertainment venues, especially in the area between Holiday Beach and Renaissance, which is partly owned by Curaçao Ports Authority and the government,” Huerta indicated.
