Blessed with abundant sunshine and centuries-old heritage, Curacao mixes Caribbean zest with European style and blesses the island with multicultural diversity, as well as intriguing music, art, and cuisine.
Perhaps it’s the long sandy beaches or intimate rocky coves, or the “live and let live” atmosphere. Perhaps it’s the colorful coral reefs the circle the island, or the colorful colonial buildings in Willemstad. Perhaps it’s because Curacao truly feels “undiscovered”. Whatever it is about Curacao that attracts you, this Caribbean island is a vacation paradise for just about everyone.
Along with Aruba and Bonaire, Curacao is one of the so-called “ABC Islands,” all part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and all located just off Venezuela. The alluring capital city of Willemstad is one of the Caribbean’s few UNESCO World Heritage sites. Vibrant and cosmopolitan, it has become famous for its pastel-hued buildings, as well as classic architecture straight our of Amsterdam – including windmills!
Boutique clothing and jewelry shops, famous designer goods, electronics, souvenir shops, and specially foods can be found in Willemstad, as well as Curacao liqueur and imported Dutch items like chocolates and Gouda cheese. The cuisine scene reflects the island’s diverse heritage, with Caribbean, African, Dutch, Spanish, French, American, and other flavors – many backed by ocean views! After dark, there are Latin dance parties, casinos, bars, and live music, not to mention the largest and longest-enduring Carnival spectacle in the Caribbean, beginning in early January.
Sun-lovers prize Curacao for its secluded beaches and coves, and divers have discovered the island has some of the best scuba and snorkeling in the world. Strong, steady trade winds make conditions perfect for windsurfing, while catamaran sailing, kayaking, water-skiing, and jet-skiing are also popular.
