Curaçao is a Dutch island in the Caribbean Sea 40 miles from the coast of Venezuela. It gained its independence from Holland in 2010, but the locals still have Dutch passports and the island has Dutch political and cultural characteristics.

It’s one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean and a popular holiday destination. Curaçao is a great place to be whether you’re on a budget or travelling in luxury.

General Information

Curaçao has been pinged back and forth between the Spanish, Dutch and British empires so many times it’s difficult to keep up. Now independent, it’s a polyglot culture with many influences.

Many Jewish refugees settled in Curaçao in the 16th-century. The locals, rather like the Dutch, speak many languages. The capital city of Willemstad was established in 1634. It’s distinguished by colourful Dutch colonial buildings. Curaçao is a major beach destination – there are 35, each with distinct characteristics. You’ll also find buzzing nightlife, including a great live music scene.

What Everyone Does In Curaçao

Explore the Willemstad, a UNESCO World Heritage City. It’s packed with vibrant coloured buildings and has an air of faded grandeur. Take a stroll down the historic Handelskade waterfront.

What Some People Do In Curaçao

Take a trip underground and visit the Hato Caves. You’ll see surreal limestone formations and man-made sculptures.

What No One Else Does In Curaçao

It’s an hour-and-a-half by boat to the small coral island of Klein Curaçao. Fringed by white sand beaches, it boasts an abandoned 19th-century lighthouse, several shipwrecks and it’s home to a lounge of whiptail lizards.
