Only 40km northwest of Willemstad is a completely different world. Far away from nightlife and other popular attractions of Curacao, lies this quirky little cosy resort. Budget hotel Rancho el Sobrino has a relaxing vibe, especially the area surrounding its small swimming pool, which is a great place to spend a lazy day. The life size wooden horse statue will keep your offspring busy, as the birds in cages. Rooms vary greatly in size, comfort and price, but overall all are clean and equipped with all the amenities you need. TVs are from a time pre-dating the invention of flat screens, but who wants to watch the news or a soap opera when living in a Caribbean paradise? The kitchenettes include gas stovetop, fridge, coffee maker, toaster, kettle and dishes. The bathrooms on the other hand are a bit small, but have warm water all day long and if you're feeling a little lonely you can make friends with the local iguanas that seem to adore this place.
