Curacao can be found in the Caribbean Sea, tucked up next to the continent of South America. It is a Dutch island, known for stunning coves, beautiful coral reefs, and extraordinary diving opportunities.

The island boasts an interesting history, visible in the museums and vibrantly painted buildings of the island’s capital, Willemstad. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city is also home to the oldest operating Hebrew synagogue in the Western Hemisphere and several other historic sites. Walking the streets of this colonial treasure, you will hear residents speaking four distinct languages: Dutch, English, Spanish and the indigenous Papiamentu.

You’ll find this colorful island to be filled with numerous adventures. Embark on a culinary adventure, take advantage of the local resorts, or just bake in the sun while enjoying a quiet beach.

Many of the buildings have been well-preserved, allowing one to find the perfect dining spot, coffee shop, or bar to enjoy.
