• CURACAO

WELCOME TO CURACAO

Curacao is a long, arid, and generally flat island, stretching some 40 miles (64 km) from southeast to northwest, at much the same north-south angles as it’s sister islands in the ABC group (Aruba to the west and Bonaire to the east). The island is about 10 miles (16 km) at it’s widest point, and the area is about 180 square miles (472 square km), making it the largest island in the Dutch Caribbean Islands group.

TOURISM AND CULTURE

With its delightful Dutch colonial architecture, bustling commercial capital and excellent history museums, go-go Curaçao feels like a little piece of Europe on the edge of the Caribbean. That is, a little piece of Europe with glorious hidden beaches, amazing onshore snorkeling and diving, and a wild undeveloped windward coast.

Curaçao has a surging economy beyond tourism, which means that Willemstad has factories, humdrum neighborhoods and sometimes bad traffic. Catering to visitors is not the primary aim here. But if you’re looking for a Caribbean island that is busy setting its own pace, Curaçao is for you.

GETTING THERE

You can travel to Curacao by air with direct flights from North America, Europe, and South America or visit Curacao by sea on a cruise or with your own yacht. Before arriving on the island, be sure to fill out your Embarkation-Disembarkation (ED) Card and know what you can bring with you through customs
