According to the article a camera and a comfortable pair of walking shoes will go a long way on a small budget in Curacao's capital city of Willemstad.

USA Today continues describing Curaçao as follows: “Awash in vibrant tropical hues, the 17th- and 18th-century Dutch Colonial buildings (on the UNESCO World Heritage list) are one of the Caribbean's most photographed cityscapes.

Once you've explored downtown, hit the road to see more than 80 historical plantation homes around the island.”

The article recommends Hotel Kura Hulanda, a five-star boutique hotel, as the place to stay.

Visitors are recommended to pick up fresh produce in downtown Willemstad's Floating Market. Also recommended: to grab a low-cost lunch where locals do: just down the street at the Old Market near the post office. Snorkelers and divers, don't miss a daytrip to Klein Curacao, an uninhabited island eight miles offshore, with a long white-sand beach.
