If you love the beach and want a crystal clear ocean, as well as culture, historic museums (with history to the late 1400s), night life, mountains, quaint city life, beach diversity, and …
coral reefs, I don’t know if there’s a better island. That’s why you should – Visit Curacao. And there’s more.
While we’ve been to many Caribbean islands and traveled extensively, Curacao is by far our favorite, due to its diversity. We’ve vacationed on Curacao 5 times now, for 2-5 weeks each time, and still have so much more to explore.
You can stay in Willemstad, the main town with all its restaurants, night life, casinos, and resorts, and still be close to the airport.
Or you can go west and find lots of resort diversity with different types of beaches and accommodations. There is great diving in Westpunt and west of Willemstad. and be as close as 10 minutes or go 45 minutes from Willemstad where you have quiet beauty.
You can go east to areas like Mambo Beach and Sea Aquarium where there are many resorts, large beaches, activities day and night. If you go as far as Santa Barbara, you will be on the far eastern part of the island with a lovely high-end resort, yet far from the rest of the island.
