Snorkeling at Playa Portomari, Curacao

We are still with our same taxi driver who took us from Willemstad to Jan Kok flamingo nesting where she waited for us. Now the driver drops us at Playa Portomari where we are going to snorkel for about an hour. The driver also waits here and when we are ready she will bring us back to the cruise ship. In Curacao, it is easy to arrange your own trip with a taxi driver, an important tip for cruise passengers.

We brought our own snorkel gear but it could also be rented on the beach. Before going into the water we have a drink at the bar (nonalcoholic off course). From a wooden platform snorkelers and divers can directly access the water. The water was rather sandy but we saw some nice fish.

We zijn nog steeds op weg met dezelfde taxi chauffeur die ons van Willemstad naar de Jan Kok flamingo's bracht en daar wachtte. Nu rijden we naar Playa Portomari waar we een uurtje gaan snorkelen. De chauffeur wacht ook hier en brengt ons daarna terug naar het cruiseschip. In Curaçao kan je eenvoudig je eigen trip organiseren met een taxi, belangrijke tip en informatie voor cruise passagiers. 

We hadden onze eigen snorkel mee maar je kan deze ook huren op het strand. Vooraleer we in het water gingen dronken we nog een niet alcoholisch drankje aan de bar. Van op het houten platform kunnen snorkelaars en duikers op simpele en veilige wijze het water is. Er was heel wat zand in het water maar we zagen toch enkele mooie vissen.
