Duty Free Zone
Numerous web sites refer to a "harbor duty free zone", fenced-in, and offering products at wholesale and retail that are also tax free. Sales require proof buyer is visitor to island, and items are sent directly to departing ships or airport, not carried by buyer. Can anyone provide better details, e.g. on location, offerings?
- "The Harbor Duty-Free Zone. This Free Zone is the largest in the Caribbean. It's patronized by retailers from throughout the region, who come to stock up on goods from all over the world. It's a distribution center for clothing, textiles, shoes, perfumes, pharmaceutical products and many other wholesale or retail sale goods with attractive duty-free prices. The Harbor Free Zone is a fenced-in area of 57 acres. The majority of companies established in the Harbor Free Zone are trading firms that distribute products from the United States, Europe and Asia to the Caribbean and Latin America. There is also tax-free shopping at the free zone. Goods purchased in the free zone must be shipped directly to your home or transferred to your ship or flight. You can pick them up when you arrive home." http://www.experiencecuracao.com/shopping/ TomNativenewYorker 15:54, 15 June 2009 (EDT)
I added a beaches sub-category with the names of two beaches as a start. There are numerous public beaches for addition as I get more time.
