The Lesser Antilles island country in the southern Caribbean Sea and the Dutch Caribbean region is known for its beaches tucked into coves and its expansive coral reefs. The water illuminates under the sky capturing every hue of blue imaginable. The island, with its rich history of architecture and culture, has earned it recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage City. If you can’t make it to every one of our picks favorite places, Curaçao is the one you must experience.
European tourists have known this best kept secret of the Caribbean for centuries. The island is home to fewer than 150k residents, representing over 55 cultures. The true treasure is its people. There is an organic sense of pride that every native is more than willing to share. Every building represents a piece of history and stands as a reminder of the resilience of a population that celebrates inclusion.
Visit the Museum Kura Hulanda, take a walk around Willemstad, or a simple stroll along the many white sand beaches. There is also a vibrant culinary scene. Restaurants are full of locals, Europeans and a few in-the-know Americans. Have dinner at St. Tropez or beachside cocktails at Zanzibar. Curaçao is beautiful all year round. There’s alos a Jazz festival that happens in August. It’s a littler warmer than the Winter months during travel peek, however you can get great travel deals and perfect tan lines.
