Caracas Bay Quarantine Building

  • Viewpoints

Want to taste a bit of culture and history during your stay on Curaçao? Then the Quarantine Building is definitely recommended.

Caracasbaai Quarantine Building is one of the historic remains of Curaçao. The Caracas Bay area was designated a quarantine station for ships with contagious people on board in 1874. The Quarantine Building was built in 1883. This building was the observation facility for healthy sailors, who had to stay here until it was determined that they were not infected.

    Another incredible piece of Curaçao’s heritage - left to rot. I fell in love with this building on my first day there. I opened my imagination to the endless possibilities: a fantastic upmarket restaurant (what a building, what a location!) or a guest house…Quarantine House has the potential to be a fabulous restaurant: tables on the two beautiful covered verandas, crisp white table cloths, big ceiling fans cooling dinners as the overlook the azure ocean. High ceilings with elegant supporting columns. Plantation blinds could filter strong sunlight and cool the interior - which could be more internal Dino g opportunities, and the upstairs level could be turned into guest rooms or an upmarket art gallery. Instead, this incredible building is slowly rotting away, infested with graffiti and another testament of a huge investment opportunity which has been lost. Loved the location and the building - hated the neglect and graffiti…
