I recently discovered this island on a television show and it has me in love. It reminds me a lot of Amsterdam and several Dutch cities, something logical since it is one of the islands that belongs to the Netherlands Antilles . This island is a perfect recreation of the Dutch capital but in Caribbean waters, being also a historical area that has been declared a World Heritage Site.
The island of Curaçao is the largest and most populated of the Netherlands Antilles and is in the southern Caribbean, very close to Venezuela. Although its name is very Portuguese, there is a lot of Dutch influence on the island, as well as a large colony. The capital, Willemstad, is a marvel with pastel colored houses that are very reminiscent of the Dutch and that we have seen so many times. It is estimated that some 50 different cultures coexist in this city.
The color that can be seen in the capital is a clear example of its personality and culture, reflecting the joy, freedom and great diversity of its inhabitants. If you combine all that with the excellent beaches and coral reefs that correspond to it for being in the Caribbean, you will undoubtedly be facing one of the most spectacular contrasts and landscapes you can see.
The climate in Curaçao is very mild throughout the year and tourism is the strong point of its economy since it is also outside the areas that are usually affected by hurricanes. One of its great attractions is the so-called Blue Room , a cavity under the sea made up of different colors and which is perfect for diving enthusiasts. You can also practice various sports, taste a very rich cuisine with various influences, visit a spa or have fun in places of leisure such as restaurants, discos, bars or casinos.
