Willemstad 84°F Partly cloudy

Bin Aki!

Curaçao, a Dutch Caribbean island, is known for its beaches tucked into coves and its expansive coral reefs rich with marine life.

The capital, Willemstad, has pastel-colored colonial architecture, floating Queen Emma Bridge and the sand-floored, 17th-century Mikvé Israel-Emanuel Synagogue. It’s also a gateway to western beaches like Blue Bay, a popular diving site. 

Curaçao is a wonderful area and one of my favorites. When you arrive at the port area, there are several shops right there at the dock. You exit on the very end where you can find taxis to take you anywhere you want to go.

Size: 171.4 mi²

Languages: Papiamento, Dutch, English

Currency: Netherlands Antillean guilder

Cruise Port: Mega Cruise Terminal, Willemstad
