There are many ways to get around Curaçao — and you’re never
far from anywhere on an island that stretches a mere 40 miles
long and 10 miles wide.
The best way to get to know the island is by renting a car to take
you wherever you want to go, whenever you like. Car rental
companies operate at Curaçao International Airport, such as Hertz,
Budget, Avis and Alamo. Many have desks in the larger hotels
too. For longer rentals, ask about special weekly rates. A deposit
will be required, so a credit card will help. It is advisable to make
reservations for a rental car in advance. An international driving
license is not required, and a valid driver’s license is sufficient.
Many hotels offer an airport transfer service. Some also offer
regular shuttle services to the beach and downtown Willemstad.
For excursions elsewhere on the island, ask about shuttles before
booking your own transportation. Diving schools, for example, will
usually offer a pick-up and drop-off service.
