Plan an amazing trip to Curaçao
Located in the Caribbean, about 40 miles from Venezuela, the Island of Curaçao belongs to the Netherlands. Formerly a haven for pirates, the island is barely 40 miles long.
Despite its size, the island is not short of attractions. Among the numerous little bays you will find magnificent white sand beaches and transparent water inviting you to swim. Relax on Kenapa Beach or swim in the turquoise blue water in Cas Abao, its beach is lined with magnificent cacti. There is a range of water sports to do, including surfing, diving, and kayaking. On Grandi Beach, you can observe the sea turtles and even swim among these magnificent sea creatures, surrounded by multi-coloured tropical fish.
If you enjoy watching aquatic life, visit the aquarium which was built with respect for the species it houses.
Christoffel Park is an protected natural area full of rare species of plants and animals such as the Curaçao deer, exotic birds, and even iguanas. A trip to the exceptionally beautiful stalactites and underground lakes in Hato Caves will round off your visit.
The capital, Willemstad, is unmissable. Its historic neighbourhoods, characterful port and pastel coloured Dutch style houses are listed as a UNESCO world heritage site. Don’t miss a visit to the floating market. It’s particularly picturesque with gaudy boats bringing all sorts of goods to the local population.
