Remember that when walking around Willemstad, treat it like you would any foreign city. Stay to the populated areas, especially at night. Walking in Punda or the main shopping street of Otrobanda is quite safe up until about midnight. Females should take into account that men on Curacao can be kind of macho, don't respond to unwanted attention. Driving on the island can be an adventure, don't expect the most courteous drivers but don't be afraid of: speed checks, alcohol checks or red light cameras. These things don't exist on the island.
Don't leave anything in your car. Paid parking spaces have a number on them.
