Curacao pronounced "Cure-a-sow" is just off the northern coast of Venezuela. Curacao is an island paradise, nestled between Aruba and Bonaire. Easy to reach with daily flights from US, Europe and South America. The skies are tranquil and pleasant and the sea is warm crystal clear. Curacao is located outside the hurricane belt which makes it a very popular destination because the island enjoys favorable weather year round. The capital offers the ambiance of a European city with the breathtaking beauty of island locale. Dutch, African and Latin people make up the cultures, and wonderful cuisine on the island. A semiarid climate contributes to the crystal-clear waters that offer visibility of up to 150 feet, which makes Curacao one of the best scuba diving destinations of the world. The islands reef system is vibrant and pristine. Dotted with ivory beaches and remote rocky coves, Curacao is a true Caribbean treasure.
