We chose not to do an Excursion but walk around the beautiful area and town and park. The people are most friendly and we felt comfortable walking about. The park was beautiful and well maintained. Iguanas were everywhere so we spent some time photographing them. After walking to the small beach we crossed over and walked to the other side... More

The small statue of Queen Wilhelmina is lovely, and I loved even more the statue of Anne Frank with hopeful inscription in four languages on the four sides of the base. If you wish, you can follow the sidewalk away from this manicured... More

While you are shopping downtown, stroll by Wilhelmina Park to view one of the local tributes to Dutch colonialism. It's an average type urban setting, but while you are in Oranjestad, why not see it.

Right outside of Renaissance Ocean Suites is this spot. Nice little park right by the ocean. Great place to take a couple of pictures.

If you like to see a lot of iguana's! It's a small but nice park to walk trough. We have also seen a few beautiful boots and when you are at the other side of the park, you can swim in the bay behind the hotel.

Our hotel was next to this park and we encountered it on our way to dinner late one afternoon. It's a pretty little park with walking paths, a couple statues, and shrubbery. It only takes a few minutes to see the park if in a hurry, but one could spend up to an hour if so inclined.

Not too big of a park, but you do get to see a lot of iguanas, if you bring food a large number will appear.
