You won’t find parking too much of a problem in the smaller towns or near the beaches but in the capital Willemstad, it’s a different matter. Tourists and locals combine to clog the streets and parking can be a nightmare. In such circumstances it’s best to park a little further away from the attractions and walk through the pretty streets.
It’s generally only in Willemstad or near tourist attractions that you’ll have to pay parking charges. Some of them can seem excessive but that’s because there’s often no other choice.
Enforcement of parking rules can mean a penalty ticket in paid parking areas, usually issued privately or being towed if causing an obstruction. You’ll have to pay a charge to release your car from the car pound in those circumstances.
Provision of accessible parking for disabled drivers is more common in the capital but if you need it elsewhere you’ll find people willing to help you find accessible parking.
