Curaçao, Dutch Caribbean


Curaçao is the smile in the Caribbean. Because of the shape of the island with a population of over 150,000 on an area of 171 square miles we consider the island as the smile in the Caribbean located at the south part of the Caribbean between the islands Aruba and Bonaire. The country of Curaçao which includes the main island plus the small, uninhabited island of Klein Curaçao ("Little Curaçao"), is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and its capital Willemstad.

Not only the shape of the island but the faces of our "bon yu di Kòrsou" (good child of Curaçao) you will find a smile that can cheer you up and give the warm, tropical vacation feeling. For centuries, we have forged a vibrant and rich culture rooted in history and hospitality. Our heritage is both European and African – representing more than 50 nationalities.

We speak:
               - Dutch

               - Spanish

               - English

               - also a local language,Papiamentu, a colourful Creole dialect.

Experience the beautiful jewel that is Willemstad, Curaçao. This lively port is one of six UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Caribbean, joining the ranks of Old Havana, Old San Juan, and Colonial Santo Domingo.

Our downtown, the Punda District – once fortified and walled – along with its neighboring districts of Otrobanda, Pietermaai, Scharloo, preserve some 765 buildings as national monuments. Chief among these are Fort Amsterdam, the Governor's Palace, Mikve Israel-Emanuel Synagogue and the colorful Penha building on the waterfront. After decades of preservation efforts, Willemstad is proud to be counted among the best of the best. Click this link for a video about Curaçao
