The Tug Boat (Lotsenboot) Beach is said to be the best snorkelling site in Curacao. It is snorkelling in an industrial area, right next to a huge dock and possibly a ship that stays there for maintenance. However, there is a nice bar and in a depths of only three meters deep you find the sunken tugboat.
An old man was feeding Iguanas (Leguane) at the Tug Boat Beach in Curacao. He knew that the smell of moisture atracts these herbivorous lizards. And I knew that Iguanas are commonly eaten in Curacao, as soup or stew (Eintopf). I asked wether he eats them, an he answered: “This is Curacao”. I took that for a yes.
The largest lagoon in Curacao, Spanish Water, is used by boats and marinas, tourist resorts and golf clubs. There is, however, some nature left, and its vegetation is dominated by cactus that grows in this subtropical but dry climate. The Caracara is a bird of prey and a scavenger, often found sitting on a cactus.
