Curaçao has a remarkable history, especially in the Caribbean. The English-speaking Afro-Caribbean island is as bright as it is welcoming, yet its pastel-colored buildings and double-Dutch signage give it a distinct Dutch flair. The island, which is home to a diverse population, is known for its vibrant festivals.
Visitors to Curaçao may enjoy a range of athletic events, music festivals, and the finest of Caribbean culture throughout the year. Many events include parades, the most well-known being the yearly Carnival, which takes place at the start of the year. The Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival, which takes place in late August, is also a must-see for music fans.
Compared to other Caribbean locations with a more significant profile, Curaçao’s food and restaurants are more laid-back and relaxed. Willemstad, the capital, can be explored on foot to visit the city’s restaurants and pubs, and there are alternatives both in the town and along the beaches. Other regions have fewer options, with hotels often providing all entertainment. Casinos and nighttime dancing are available in addition to pubs and clubs.
