Transport on Curaçao

Transport on curacao

When you do an internship or work in Curaçao, you will have to travel to work. Curaçao is of course an island with the longest road of 66 KM, so that is very small compared to, for example, the Netherlands. However, in practice this is really different because you are not allowed to go faster than 80 km per hour here and we have many more traffic lights and roundabouts. 

Public transport on Curaçao

You have buses in Curaçao that can take you from point A to point B. It's just not as well organized as in Europe. You have signs here with 'bus stop' and then you have to wait until a bus arrives and then the question is where the bus is going. You don't have those timetables here. You do have a central bus station in Otrobanda and all buses depart from here. 

You also have small vans on Curaçao and these are private buses. You can stop these vans anywhere to get in. So you don't necessarily have to go to a bus stop for that. The advantage of these vans is that they can also take you to a chosen point. The disadvantage of this is that when everyone does this, the bus ride becomes much longer!

The costs of public transport in Curaçao are not expensive compared to Europe. Count about 2 – 3 ANG per ride. 

Rent a car on Curacao

Almost every student or young worker that we help at CuraStage has a driver's license. Most people therefore always choose to rent a car on Curaçao. This has to do with the fact that there are no cycle paths on the island, so everyone is on the motorway and that can sometimes be dangerous. Renting a car on Curaçao is the best means of transport because you can drive everywhere and you do not have to wait for a bus to arrive. 

The prices of renting a car for a longer period are around ANG 1000 per month. Then you have a good car with which you can safely tour the island. Curious about which cars you can choose from us? View our transport options here

Rent a scooter on Curaçao

Another option at CuraStage is to rent a scooter on Curaçao. We only recommend this if you don't have to drive too far to your internship or workplace. This is because there are no separate paths for cyclists or scooters. 

Of course you can choose to rent a scooter and then you will of course be cheaper than if you rent a car on Curaçao! For about 450 ANG per month you have a scooter and you can tour around the island. Please note that when you rent a scooter you cannot go everywhere. 

All in all, we at CuraStage advise you to always rent a car on Curaçao! If you don't have a driver's license, we would go for a scooter.

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.
