Situated to the north of Venezuela, the island of Curacao is a destination that mixes sandy beaches and fabulous diving opportunities with architecture and a colourful history.
Willemstad is the capital of Curacao and is something of a sprawling city. Head for the old town and you will find yourself immersed in a world of museums, cafes, markets and trading stalls which really offer visitors a flavour of the island's colonial Dutch heritage.
Head down the west coast of the island and you are sure to find some stunning beaches, with plenty of opportunities for diving and snorkelling in the clear, blue waters off the coast. If you want to see more of the island, consider a jeep safari which will be able to take you to locations you otherwise wouldn't be able to reach. A visit to the Christoffel National Park is also a must-do if you are planning a long-haul holiday to Curacao, especially if you are a nature lover. Keep an eye out for wild orchids, the Curacao white tailed deer and the island's native barn owl.
If you are heading to Curacao in early January then you might be able to catch some of the island's carnival festivities, which naturally involve plenty of music, dancing. Regardless of when you're planning to arrive though, you'll always find plenty of local life and culture to engage with in Curacao.
