Your tour begins at the impressive Hato Caves — home to beautiful limestone formations, the famous Madonna statue and a colony of seldom-seen long-nosed fruit bats. Follow your guide and discover the animals and other figures in various stone formations. After your tour of the caves, you will be driven back to the city, where your walk through the city center will begin. First, you will pass by the floating fruit and vegetable market. This typical market consists of Venezuelan sailing ships, with the crew selling its products straight from the boats. Next stop is Fort Amsterdam. On your way, you will pass beautifully colored merchant houses. These mansions are the perfect backdrop for photo memories of Curaç ao. Continuing on, you will arrive at Fort Amsterdam. Built in the 16th century and now part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Fort Amsterdam is regarded as the most vital of the 8 forts on Curaç ao, and it is still used for its original purpose. It is the seat of the government and the governor of Curaç ao. Sharing the square within the fortress is the Fort Church, a historic monument and museum. The last part of this walk will be to cross the floating bridge that connects both sides of the city. Your guide will escort you back to the ship, passing through the Rif Fort Village mall with its many shops and restaurants. You will have the option of staying behind and enjoying the location a little longer.
