Willemstad, Curaçao

 

 

 

 

 

With a population of around 142,000 people, Curacao is more populated than its neighbors. Visitors are dazzled not only by its incredible beaches but by the traditional Dutch architecture with bright, pastel colors.

In addition to natural attractions, the territory is home to the Queen Juliana Bridge. At 185 feet in height, it’s one of the tallest bridges in the world and by far the tallest in the Caribbean. If you get a chance, drive across it to take in great views of St. Anna Bay.

Curacao is home to aquariums, national parks, ostrich farms, forts and many amazing scuba-diving spots. The cuisine here is flavored by European, East Asian and West Indian influences, so dining out is a lot of fun. With year-round warm temperatures, gentle breezes and low humidity, Curacao is a great place to visit year-round.
