Satellite overview from Google Earth.
The church is in the upper right corner. There is a fence around the cemetery, but a gate at the South side.

There is a locked gate on the Northwest side of the cemetery. This image was taken
through that gate.

Open Gate on South Side
This gate was open, and there was a black pickup truck inside the cemetery when I visited in January 2009.
I did not see anyone, and it was not clear whether I could enter and photograph freely, so I stayed outside the
gate and shot photos from that vantage.
The sign hanging on the gate reads "Enter and close the door" in Papiamentu, the language of Curacao.

Looking northwest from the gate. Note the typical growth along paths and between crypts. The native
vegetation on the island is hardy and pervasive, and very difficult to keep under control.
