Botika's on Curaçao
In Curaçao we do not talk about pharmacies but about Botikas. It's kind of a small department within a drugstore. So you can often buy other things than just medication. When you walk into a botika you will often immediately see the desk where you can hand in a doctor's prescription or ask medical questions.
After they have taken the prescription and packed the medication, you will receive a sticker with the amount you have to pay. You then go to the checkout to first pay the amount on the sticker. Did you pay? Then you walk back to the counter where you handed in the prescription. You can now take your medication with you and hope you get better soon!
Opening hours pharmacies on Curaçao
Most pharmacies in Curaçao open at 8 am and close between 5 and 7 pm. You can walk in during opening hours to be helped. You are also not obliged to necessarily go to a botika that most often collaborates with the doctor you have been to. You can hand in a prescription from a doctor at all pharmacies in Curaçao.
Do you need a pharmacy at night or ’s late at night? Don't panic, because you also have that here on Curaçao. We call this the Botica na warda. There is often a pharmacy that is open all evening and night. Because this pharmacy can differ every day, a handy Facebook page has been set up where you can find out who the pharmacy is on duty for the night shift. View directly which pharmacy is on duty here.
