Supermarkets on Curaçao

Supermarkets on Curacao

When you go to Curaçao to do an internship or work, you also have to do your own shopping. Of course you have supermarkets on Curaçao and we have quite a few supermarkets where you can buy delicious products. These products mainly come from America, the Netherlands and Venezuela. In short, the choice is also huge here. 

Curaçao has very diverse supermarkets. For example, you have very large and very small supermarkets, more expensive and cheaper and of course Western-oriented supermarkets, as opposed to supermarkets where mainly the local population comes. The prices in the supermarket are higher than you are probably used to. This has to do with the fact that all products have to be imported, which entails extra costs. 

Cheap shopping on Curaçao

To shop cheaply, you have to shop smart. You have several supermarkets and if you have a little time you can shop cheaply. At one supermarket product a is cheaper and at another supermarket product b is cheaper. So you can be on the road for a day to collect all your groceries cheaply. Some will indicate that the ?truck di pan? cheaper than cooking. However, this is not the case if you do good shopping and, for example, freeze your food. For example, if you go shopping with your housemates, you will already be completely cheap! 

Types of supermarkets in Curaçao

Since a few years there are even two Albert Heijns to be found. In the AH and with it many more western supermarkets, you will of course find many branded products. The layout of these shops is also more clear, because the local supermarkets are usually smaller and have very narrow aisles. The quality of the products is certainly not less in many cases, but it is simply different from what you are used to. You also have two Centrum supermarkets, this is a similar concept to the AH, but a lot cheaper!

Every supermarket has 'packers', these are usually young boys and they earn a little extra by packing and lifting groceries. They will efficiently pack everything for you and bring the groceries to your car for heavy shopping. These packers do not receive a standard wage but earn from the tip you give. Of course you are free to give what you want. 

Tips in the supermarket on Curaçao

Where things are normal for you, that is not the case on Curaçao, so you really have to pay attention to what you put in your cart. Here are some handy tips:

? Pay close attention to the expiration date.

? AH really has ?European? bread and Centrum delicious marinated meat.

Not all accommodations on Curaçao have standard linen. That is why we offer this service. That saves a lot of space in your suitcase ;-) 

The linen consists of a pillow, bottom sheet and duvet cover. On Curaçao we do not sleep under blankets because of the heat. No towels are included. 

If you use our pick-up service, you will receive your linen directly at Hato, otherwise you can pick it up at our office.  


Calling each other on Curaçao is very expensive. That is why a local SIM card is definitely recommended. 

You put this SIM card in your phone, but you keep your normal WhatsApp number. This way you can call and app with the home front & friends via WhatsApp as you are used to.

You call each other on Curaçao at the local rate with your new local telephone number.

If you have a pick-up service, you will receive your SIM card directly at Hato, otherwise you can pick it up at our office.
