At this high point, nothing is hidden. You can see both sides of the habour, the canal, the waterplant, the districts. A visiting cruise can add so much to the background.

There isn't much to do, but it is the highest bridge in the Caribbean. If you are in the area, make sure you get the chance to cross it or take some nice pictures from the floating bridge,

Pedestrians are not allowed on the bridge, but the view is impressive from the deck and a remarkable view standing in Otrobanda and Punda. I once distracted a lady from jumping off while a police officer grabbed her. Many revelers start the New Year by...More
