5 Reasons Curaçao Needs To Be On Your Caribbean Radar

When planning a trip where the fun in the sun and beaches are concerned, the Caribbean is one of the premier destinations in the world. It is an area that people flock to from all over to admire the beauty and fun the Caribbean delivers.

Everybody knows Blue Curaçao. This shiny blue drink that was very popular in the past and somehow isn’t that popular anymore!

But Curaçao? The island? Any idea where it is? I had to look it up, too! Maybe you’ve heard about the ABC Islands, a group of islands formerly known as the Dutch Antilles? Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao?

When people think about going to the Caribbean, they often visit St. Kitts, Grand Cayman, Saint Martin, or Antigua. These are amazing places with so much to offer visitors, but they are not the only choices. There is an island that tends to get overlooked by many…Let me introduce you to that different Caribbean island in Central America: Curaçao!

5 Reasons To Consider Curaçao:

Curaçao is a beautiful island located just east of Aruba and just off the coast of Venezuela. Curaçao has so much to offer visitors, and here are five reasons why Curaçao needs to be on anyone’s radar if they’re looking to take a trip to the Caribbean.

1. The Beaches.

Anyone traveling to the Caribbean is going because of their desire for fun under the sun. There are 35 different beaches to hit while visiting Curaçao. It only takes an hour and a half to drive the island’s length. Every beach has a personality of its own; there is a beach that will suit any visitor’s desires.

2. Affordability

Sticking to a budget is important to every traveler, and Curaçao can help travelers stay within that budget. Curaçao is ranked as one of the most affordable of the Caribbean islands to visit. Another great thing about Curaçao is that it is located outside the hurricane belt, so traveling during storm season doesn’t pose a real issue.

3. Nightlife

Curaçao has a hopping nightlife scene for those looking to fill your days and nights with fun. Live music is a staple of this multicultural island, and all types of music can be heard, from jazz to soca. There is going to be the perfect bar or watering hole for any traveler.

4. Art.

If you are looking to partake in a bit more of a sophisticated type of fun, there are plenty of arts across the island to enjoy. From excellent art galleries to stunning murals across the cities, there is an art to be enjoyed everywhere. There are also multiple museums for visitors to see and enjoy.

5. Culture.

The island of Curaçao is a multicultural place that has a varied history. Citizens of Curaçao carry a Dutch passport, but from the native Arawak people to the Spanish, Portuguese, and Jewish peoples, there have been many influences on this island. Its proximity to South America also adds to its diversity.

Fun Things To Do:

  • Walk across the floating Queen Emma Bridge that sways with the ocean.
  • Explore the water spouts of Shete Boka Park and underground caverns along Curaçao’s rocky northern coastline. View the stalactites and stalagmites of the island’s renowned Hato Caves.
  • Snorkel in sparkling Playa Lagun’s clear turquoise waters along northwest Curaçao.
  • Visit an Ostrich Farm in Curaçao’s African-style zoo.
  • Swim with friendly bottlenose dolphins in a saltwater lagoon and open ocean at the Dolphin Academy. Snorkel amidst tugboat wrecks and colorful sea creatures during an island tour.

Curaçao is a place that every traveler needs to consider. It is a beautiful island that has as much to offer travelers as any of the other more popular island destinations. Maybe the fact that this island flies under the radar of many Caribbean travelers can be another reason it is such a great place.
